The Helibird Parrots are a species of Jungle Buddies found in Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat. They are a group of birds that work like helicopters, carrying Donkey Kong to higher places. They appear frequently throughout the game, mostly in tree areas. In one level, Donkey Kong and the Helibirds have to race a Chopperbird. In another level, Donkey Kong has an air race with a group of Ninjapes, each of which has their own Helibird. A Helibird delivers Donkey Kong to his battle with the Cactus King and Ghastly King.
