The chained street parrot of Hanoi
The red parrot of Hanoi.
I had recently visited Hanoi in Vietnam and came across this colorful red parrot chained to its perch on the footpath of the main road. It was the noisiest bird on this tourist street near my hostel in the proximity of Hoan Kiem Lake. Please identify this beautiful red parrot. Its owner owned a small shop next to the footpath and also a small road-side eatery.
This is a beautiful bird! And it is a Red Lory (Eos Bornea). We don’t have it listed on our Lory and Lorikeet page (www.allpetbirds.com/lorikeets.html), but you can read more about this type of bird on that page. 🙂
