Grey-headed Parrot

Poicephalus fuscicollis

Although the ranges of the cape and grey-headed parrots do not overlap, the latter is larger with a grey (not brown) head.

Northern Kruger National Park is the best place in South Africa to connect with these awesome parrots.

We first recorded them in June 2012 while staying at Pafuri Wilderness Camp and had our best moment with a flock of them a few days later while travelling along the Mahonie Loop in Punda Maria.
