Scarlet Chested Parrot

The male Scarlet-chested Parrot has bright green upper parts, a blue face, throat and cheeks and a scarlet chest, with the rest of the underparts yellow. Its flight feathers are edged deep blue. The central tail feathers are blue-green but the outer tail feathers are blue, broadly tipped with yellow. The female has a paler face and a green breast. Both male and female have a dark brown eye, grey-black cere (the fleshy part at the top of the bill) and bill. Immature birds are similar to the female but duller. This bird can also be called the Splendid Parrot.
