A female Red-bellied parrot. Okay, where’s the red belly on her? It’s the male bird of this species that carries the colourful orange plumage on his lower abdomen. But it’s implied it has red plumage with that name & she has grey & green feathers, plus a magnificent red iris! This parrot was named before the word ‘orange’ found its way into the English language following the introduction of the Orange citrus fruit. So some animals that are colored orange by our current definition were deemed to be red in the olden days due to the fact that a word for the colour orange didn't exist in English back then. Anyway, she was having a wing stretch at the time this click was taken after having tended her nearby nest in the hollow of a Doum palm. Her mate was nearby #parrot #parrotsofinstagram #parrotsoftheworld #redbelliedparrot #birdsofinstagram #naturephotography #nature #africanbirds #d500 #nikond500 #nikonafrica #nikonwildlife #nikkor200_500 #naturelover #wildlifephotography #wildlife #best_birds_of_ig #birds_brilliance #birdfreaks #birds_adored #birdsonearth #nature_worldwide_birds #planetbirds #pocket_birds #total_birds #birdsofafrica #mynikonlife #mynikon #samburunationalreserve
