POWERED BY MERLIN

Generally uncommon parrot of lowland rainforest; also found in premontane forest at higher elevations in the tepui region and locally in savanna forest. Ecology and behavior similar to others in the genus. Note voice and burnt-orange forehead; diagnostic blue cheeks can be difficult to see. Feeds on fruit and flowers in the canopy; often seen commuting to or from roosts, or between feeding areas. Vocalizations are varied; most common call is a repeated yelp, similar to Orange-winged Parrot but somewhat lower-pitched and with a more liquid quality.
