Vernal Hanging Parrot - Birds of India - HD Video

Vernal Hanging Parrot (Loriculus vernalis), also known as Indian Hanging Parrot  or the Green Hanging Parrot is the smallest of the resident parrots in India. Distributed across North East India, East India, Western Ghats and Bangladesh in the Indian sub continent, Vernal Hanging Parrot is usually found in broad leaved evergreen and moist deciduous forests fringes. Sri Lanka has a close cousin, but a separate resident species known as the Sri Lankan Hanging Parrot (Loriculus beryllinus).

This cute bird has a distinctive di/tri syllabic rasping flight call de-zeez-zeet. If you are a keen observer and patient listener, you may get this call and may be able to spot a bird resting on a branch nearby.  It spends most of its day time on tree tops.

It has short, rapid wing beats before taking a brief pause.

But our favorite is its style of moving across a tree branch. Watch a Vernal Hanging Parrot in action from Western Ghats of Kerala.
