Very long-tailed, pastel-toned parrot of arid inland western deserts of Australia, typically only seen by those deliberately searching for it in the remote Great Sandy Desert, although occasionally found closer to Alice Springs or Uluru. Male has glorious blue and lilac crown, pink throat, baby-blue lower belly, lime-green wing coverts, and bright red bill; female similar but colors less intense and extensive. In flight, long tail is obvious, as is the bright violet-blue rump. Calls include a sharp, ringing squeak.
