Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized parakeet of tepui highlands. Plumage mostly green with distinctive yellow and red patches at the bend of the wing, visible even on perched birds. Also note long tail, pale bill, and white ring around eye. Relatively common but can be difficult to see well; groups fly through canopy, stopping abruptly to feed in fruiting and flowering trees, where they can easily be overlooked. Call is a rollicking, screeching chatter like other Pyrrhura. No similar parakeet occurs in high-elevation tepui forests.
