Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive small parrot of southeastern Australia. Olive-green, with yellow belly and mostly dark blue wings. Face yellow between eye and bill, with small yellow triangle behind eyes and thin blue line between eyes. Feeds on the ground in open areas, including sporting grounds and farmland. Compare Rock Parrot (duller green, lacks the yellow on face, and only a thin blue edge to folded wing) and Elegant Parrot (yellower, no yellow patch behind eye). Call a very high, thin, chiming "zit zit."
