Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, dark green parrot. Note the red patches on the shoulder and thighs. The head is pale gray, and the underparts green or blue-green. Found at varied elevations in forest, thick woodland, and plantations. No overlap with the similar Brown-necked Parrot. Call is a shriek that is surprisingly high-pitched for such a robust bird.
