Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce parrot of Andean cloud forest. There are two isolated populations, one in central Peru and the other in central Bolivia. Plumage is green with mostly black wings, blue wingtips, a faint blue collar, and a grayish or buffy ear patch (which is very indistinct on some birds). Usually seen flying rapidly over the forest canopy, then quickly disappearing into the trees, where it becomes very hard to spot.
