Short-tailed, mostly green miniature parrot. The back of the neck has a line of black above a line of color that varies geographically from yellow in the eastern part of the range to red in the center and orange in the east. Also note the blue rump and red patches on the sides of the tail. Found in lowland rainforest, including forest clearings and edge, and sometimes in secondary habitat. Often seen in small groups flying fast above the forest canopy. The call is a quick, high-pitched, silvery “siireee,” often given in flight. Structure and mostly green coloration similar to Red-headed Lovebird, but note the black collar and lack of red on the face.
