Vasa Parrot

Coracopsis vasa

The vasa parrots are ‘true’ parrots, unlike macaws and cockatoos, meaning that they have squared off tails, like African grey parrots and Amazon parrots.



Size: 50cm
Weight: 480g



Vasa parrots are found on Madagascar and Comoro Islands, in forests and savannah below 1,000 metres.



They feed on fruit, nuts, berries and seeds. In some areas they raid ripening millet and maize crops.



Breeding takes place between October and December, and 2 or 3 young are born. The nest is in a hole in a tree.



The vasa parrot is not believed to be endangered as it has a large range, but its population is believed to be decreasing.
