Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small green parakeet with a yellow wash in the face and a gray bill. Found at high elevations in intermontane valleys, around semi-humid scrub and forest. Compared to the similar Mountain Parakeet, Andean has a shorter tail, a gray bill (not pale pink), and very little blue on the wing. Its calls are given in rapid series, sounding like a chuckled “juh-juh-juh.”
