The first red-fronted parrot to be scientifically identified was named Congo Jack. The parrot was brought back from the Congo to the United Kingdom by Sir William Jardine’s son on his return from a three-year cruise on the HMS Favourite. Congo Jack became tame and whistled and screamed, rather than talk. Sir William Jardine gave the species the binomial name Pionus Gulielmi after his son, William R.N. (Latin: Gulielmi means “William’s”), and published the description in 1849
