Large green parakeet, locally distributed in high-elevation forests near treeline. The thin yellow stripe extending behind the eye is distinctive, but can be difficult to see. Has less red in the head than other large parakeets in range; also note the yellow feathering on the belly. Found in high-quality forest with Podocarpus trees for feeding and wax palms for nesting. Note also its distinctive voice, lower-pitched and less harsh than other parakeets.
