The bones of the upper and lower jaw are covered in horny keratin, called rhamphotheca (Fig. 1); the mandibular rhamphotheca is known as the gnathotheca and the maxillary rhamphotheca is called the rhinotheca. The dorsal midline of the rhinotheca is the culmen and the ventral midline of the gnathotheca is the gonys. 2). Histologically the rhamphotheca resembles skin, with the dermis attached to the periosteum of the underlying bone. The epidermis is modified, in that the stratum corneum is thickened and hardened, as the cells contain free calcium phosphate and crystals of hydroxyapatite.

There is an uncinate process (caudodorsal process) on the vertebral ribs. indb 6 The pectoral girdle is made up of the scapulae, the coracoids and the clavicles. The scapula is strongly attached to the ribs and, in some species, reaches to the ilium. The coracoid is massive in most birds, functioning to hold the wing away from the sternum during flight. The clavicles fuse ventrally to form the furcula. In many parrots they are united only by cartilage or fibrous tissue. The ventral part of the furcular is attached to the apex of the sternal keel by ligaments.

It has many adaptations for collecting and manipulating food and for swallowing. Only parrots have intrinsic muscles within the tongue. Just caudal to the tongue is the laryngeal mound, which carries the glottis. It has several rows of backward-pointing papillae to aid in swallowing. The salivary glands are found in: the roof of the oropharynx (maxillary, palatine and sphenopterygoid glands); the angle of the mouth and cheeks; and the floor of the oropharynx (mandibular, lingual, and cricoarytenoid glands).
