The Cape parrot, in true parrot-fashion

The Cape parrot is found only in South Africa and is currently listed as vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List. Until recently, the Cape parrot was considered a sister species with the grey-headed parrot (Poicephalus fuscicollis). However, Cape parrots are now considered a unique species, Poicephalus robustus.
