African cape parrot

I believe this bird is Africa's most endangered parrot , once again the problem is due to humans destroying there habitat to be precise the thousand year old trees which the parrots require to nest in are being hacked for agricultural space. Not only is this the proble but a massive outbreak of a disease caused by the crop which are planted by the forest hackers . Crops of nuts which are consumed by the parrots during the crop season are armoured with a thick casing , the casing contains chemicals which are leathal to the birds . Side effects such as loss of feathers , enflamation of throat , destruction of beak etc .
Another example of a bird which is doing worse where it belongs than in captivity where it flourishes

Juveniles also show a larger orange - pink patch on the forehead but lack the red on shoulders and legs of adults. These plumage characteristics vary among individuals and among the three recognized forms
