|phylum||Chordata||The Golden-shouldered Parrot is a rare bird of southern Cape York Peninsula, in Queensland, Australia.Population surveys point to a total wild population of around 2,000 birds with around 300 breeding pairs. The remaining majority of birds are thought to be juvenile birds in their first year of life. A small parrot related to the more common Red-rumped Parrot, it is considered to be a superspecies with the Hooded Parrot (P. dissimilis) of the Northern Territory and the apparently extinct Paradise Parrot of Queensland and New South Wales.
