|Family||African and New World Parrots|
|Habitat||Humid to semi-humid forest and plantations. Absent in open or dry habitat.|
Breeding occurs from November to March and the female lays three eggs on average, incubating them for about 4 weeks. Like many young parrots they stay with their parents for a considerable time, about 2 months, before establishing their independence.
Two-thirds of North American bird species are at risk of extinction from climate change. Urge Congress to act now.
