Jamaican Red Parrot is an unknown bird of West Indies. Length, 9 inches. Primarily red plumage. Yellow feathers streaked with fine lines of red on the inside of wings and the underside of tail. Probably extinct. The bird was said to have been unknown to Jamaicans even when it was collected. It resembles no other living parrot.
In July 1764, English bird artist George Edwards painted a watercolor of a red parrot owned by Alexander Russell. It had been shot in Jamaica some time earlier and preserved.
