Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A noisy, yet somewhat wary, species of forest canopies and treetops. Often found in flocks of up to 20 or 30 birds. It is the only naturally occurring large parrot within its range and is easily distinguished from other wild species by its largely green plumage, bulky body, and hefty bill. No other parrot shares this species’ rosy throat and white forehead—characteristics that eliminate non-native species that may occur as escapees from captivity. Calls include a variety of harsh squeaks and squawks that can have a conversational quality when in flocks.
