Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A chunky green inhabitant of wet forests; typically found in pairs or small flocks in or near the canopy. Note this species’ nearly all green plumage, black bill, black eye, and black eyering. The somewhat similar Yellow-billed Parrot is distinguished from Black-billed Parrot by its rose-colored throat, yellow bill, and pale eyering. When the two species are together, the larger size of the Yellow-billed is evident. The characteristics noted above also separate this species from other parrots that might have escaped from captivity. Calls include a harsh “mwah,” a scratchy “uh-lee,” and “uh-luh,” with the latter often given rapidly and while flying.
