Hawk-headed parrot?

Taken at Ocean Park, Hong Kong. No signage suggested it was a HHP, but it seems to resemble one... ?

      not hawk-headed parrots. Maybe pearly conures (Pyrrhura lepida)? Someone will come along and give a correct ID soon

      Looks like green-cheeked conures (Pyrrhura molinae). Definitely not HHP.
    • Chlidonias
      ah yes, green-cheeked looks much more likely :)

      There are only two Pyrrhura with distinct blue to wing coverts: Pearly and crimson-bellied. The belly has been skillfully :)p) obscured on the photo and that makes separation of the two difficult. The contrastingly white scaly hind crown is typical of these species and unlike the grayer, less contrasting pattern in green-cheeks. The blue edging to tail coverts is also typical of these two but this can occasionally be seen in green-cheeks.
