The National Bird
The St. Lucian parrot, or Amazona versicolour is again honoured as the national bird. Fondly referred to as Jacquot, this delightful bird stands 16 to 18 inches in height and is primarily green with head feathers violet merging into maroon. The under-wings demonstrate a contrasting yellow, red and indigo blue. The neck is brilliant orange-red. It is an astonishingly beautiful bird that was brought back from the Jersey zoo.
