Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly common in temperate southern forests. Often in groups, but not in big flocks and does not mix with slightly larger and brighter-plumaged Slender-billed Parakeet. Found mainly in forested areas, ranging to adjacent farmland and villages with taller trees. Feeds in trees and on the ground, and often quite confiding. Identified by small stubby bill, small red face patch, and big red patch on belly. Calls are lower and less shrieky than Slender-billed Parakeet.
