The jonquil parrot or olive-shouldered parrot (Aprosmictus jonquillaceus) is a species of parrot in the family Psittaculidae. It is found in forest, woodland and acacia savanna in East Timor and the Indonesian islands of Wetar, West Timor and Roti. It is fairly common, but potentially threatened by habitat loss. Both sexes resemble the female of the closely related red-winged parrot.
