  Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot

 

PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD Thailand

A Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot (fig.) gets its name from a blue spot on the head and its peculiar sleeping habit, i.e. hanging upside-down.

 

Due to this strange roosting position it earned the nickname bat parrot or bat parakeet. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
