Jardine's Parrot
Jardine's Parrot nominal sub-species
From west central and east central Africa, Jardine's Parrot is also known as the Red-fronted Parrot which is confusing since, although it has a red brow/crown, three other species of parrot are also named "Red-fronted" (the Red-crowned Kakariki of New Zealand, the Red-fronted Macaw and Red-fronted Conure of South America) and several others are red-fronted (e.g. the Red-capped, Pileated, Red-browed and Thick-billed parrots).
