The red-bellied parrot is also known as the Orange-bellied Parrot, Red-breasted Parrot, Abyssinian Parrot.
The red-bellied parrot (Poicephalus rufiventris) is a small African parrot about 23 cm long of the genus Poicephalus. It is a mostly greenish and grey parrot. Males have a bright orange belly and females have a greenish belly.
The zygodactyly feet of the red-bellied parrot, with two toes in front and two toes in back, help it to perch on branches of all diameters. The curved beak makes easy work of any fruit or seed.
The red-bellied parrot nests in tree cavities. The eggs are white and there are usually three in a clutch. The female incubates the eggs for about 28 days and the chicks leave the nest about 63 days after hatching.
