Hanging Parrots

Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot

Hanging parrots are endemic to tropical southern Asia.

As their name suggests, these small parrots are often seen hanging from tree branches while feeding on their favorite fruits or nectar.

They may even sleep upside-down - just like the unrelated bats.

These little parrots are mostly green plumaged and short-tailed.
