Scarlet Chested Parrot


Either in the bush or the aviary, Scarlet’s are a stunning little parrot, both in colour and temperament. I have had the pleasure of keeping and breeding many Scarlet’s in several of their colour mutations plus my favourites the normal Scarlets. During the 2017 breeding season, we spent some time in the bush with wild Scarlets, and this is about some of our observations and discoveries. However, this is only a preliminary report on what we hope will be a study over several years. One of our aims is to establish if Scarlet-Chested Parrots permanently inhabit the Woodland forests just beyond the Western Australian wheat belt. Have they lived almost unnoticed reasonably close to Perth in a stable population after colonising new areas? Scarlets have only been recorded in these forests 19 times between 1901 to 2014, most being in recent years. These tall forests enjoy a fairly stable climate, unlike their semi-arid or arid desert haunts which may lessen their need to be as nomadic.
