Rare and endangered parakeet endemic to foothill cloud forest in southwestern Ecuador. It is mostly green with red on forehead, shoulder, and undertail. Flight feathers are blue, which is usually only evident in flight. Also note the whitish eyering and rather long tail. Usually encountered in small flocks that fly from tree to tree, screeching as they go. Most of the known population is found in and around the Buenaventura Reserve, where the birds are successfully using artificial nest boxes.
