Crimson-winged parrot x Superb parrot

Crimson and superb hybrids were first bred by the marquess of Tavistock in 1939, describing a young hybrid as such: “”In appearance it is much more barraband than crimson-wing, having all the coloration of a young Barraband – red thighs and pink under-surface to the tail – and no red in the wing or blue on the rump.”. Adult hybrids are similar, though males will have bright red and orange coloration on their foreheads and throats.
