The Hooded Parrot, named after the black cap of the male, is a very pretty turquoise-coloured parrot from the Northern Territory of Australia. The male has attractive bright yellow wing patches and a red vent. A similar-looking relative, the rare Golden-shouldered Parrot (Psephotus chrysopterygius) of Queensland, also has a (smaller) black cap, turquoise body, (smaller) gold wing patches and a red vent. The hen parrots look entirely different from the males -- see below. They nest in termite mounds.
