Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small dark parakeet of tall mature forest of the humid lowlands and lower slopes of the Andes. Dark green and long-tailed, with black scaling around the neck. Often travels in small, tight flocks that rocket through the canopy, calling loudly. Listen for even-pitched screeching, fairly low for a parakeet; voice similar to Rose-fronted Parakeet. Formerly known as Rock Parakeet.
