Senegal Parrot

Poicephalus senegalus

This species has an extremely large range and the population trend appears to be stable.  This species has been heavily trade; however despite international exports of vast numbers of birds, trade does not appear to have seriously impacted this species overall, with no significant national population declines reported.

This species occurs through the savanna woodland belt of West Africa, undertaking seasonal movements in at least parts of its range, moving into dryer areas during the wet season.  It has two slightly differentiated and one poorly differentiated subspecies.
