Eng. Red Rumped Parrot, Red Rump Parrot, Rumped Parakeet
Lat. Psephotus Haematonotus
ORIGIN: Southwest Australia including the area of Cooper's Creek, northeastern
areas of South Australia and northwestern areas of Queensland.
APPEARENCE: Their size is 27 cm (11 in). It belongs to the
medium-sized class of parrots. The cheeks and the front part of
the head of a male, as it is found in the wilderness, are blue-green
in color, while the lores and the back part of the head, neck, and
chest are emerald green. The abdomen is distinctly yellow and the
lower part of the tail is white-greyish towards the front. Its wings
are blue and the feathers of the secondaries-wings are green in
color. Middle-tail feathers are green-blue with black edgings while
the outer tail feathers are blue-green with white edgings. The rump,
after which this species got the name, is red. The sex is distinguishable.
The female is a mild-olive color, the wings are black and olive,
but little darker and more scaly. Check our red rumped parrot picture gallery.
KEEPING: It is best to keep rumped parrots in pairs because their vocal
expressiveness is more easily evoked when there is company. Taming
is hard and only possible with a lot of effort and time. They can
rarely learn to imitate speech, but they make up for it with their
unusually beautiful singing. Socilization is much easier for younger
birds than for older birds, so when buying a parrot one should bear
in mind to get as young a bird as possible. A cage of medium dimensions
will be enough for their keeping. Draught winds and direct sunlight
can be harmful to these birds, so one must take this fact into cosideration
when setting up their living area. They love bathing. One can splash
them with a light sprinkle of water once or twice a week.
of rumped parrots is hard and only possible with a lot of effort and time.
DIET: Apart from millet and canary seeds, which are the main elements
of the mixture for these birds, there are also shelled oats, hemp,
black seeds, flax and seeds of saffron. The sunflower seeds can
be offered in small doses. Various fruits and vegetables, they like
apples and carrot the most, and leafy vegetables such as chickory
and spinach are good choices. Minerals are also included. Boiled
eggs and bugs are among their favorite foods.
BREEDING of Red Rumped Parrot: Breeding of these parrots is not a problem. During
breeding season, they show aggressiveness so it is better to separate
each pair. One has to provide a space big enough so each pair can
establish his own territory with a nest. Aviaries for a pair don't
need to be big and it is not rare for them to breed in a larger
cage. The nest should be put on a higher place within the aviary
or cage. The most suitable dimnesions for a nest are: 22 cm (9 in)
in width and length and 30 cm (12 in) in height. Breeding begins
in April. A female clutches 5-7 eggs, and incubation
lasts for 19 days.
A male feeds his female which does not leave
the nest in the period of incubation, except in the case of danger.
In the beginning, a female fed by a male, takes care of the younglings,
but after 12 days, a male also participates in the feeding. Younglings leave the nest after 28
days and become independent 14 days after leaving the nest. The
younglings are separated from their parents 4 weeks after leaving
the nest. They usually breed twice a year. They are generally good
parents that never abandon their younglings.
FACTS: Red rumped parrots live about 15 years.
They are consistently good parents and
rarely mistreat their younglings.
They rarely imitate human speech.Producing sounds is not one of
their characteristics. Their noises are more similar to singing.
In nature they live in large flocks and each bird has a determined
hierarchical role in its flock.
