It’s a Red-fan Parrot (Deroptyus accipitrinus) otherwise known as a Hawk-head Parrot. Doesn’t it look like it’s wearing an elaborate Native American headdress? Those are actually elongated neck feathers that the bird can raise and create a “fan” which makes it appear much larger than it actually is (it’s around 12-15 inches in length).
Only two nests have ever been examined in the wild, and each had one chick in them. Check out how gorgeous those feathers are!! :
