Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A stout green inhabitant of wooded habitats; typically found in flocks, sometimes numbering in the hundreds. No other native parrot occurs within its range. The brick red patch on its lower belly, which can be difficult to see, eliminates non-native species that may have escaped from captivity. Calls include a scratchy “wheep-uh-uh” with a “wheep” and “uh-uh” sometimes given separately, and a harsh, quick “for-get.”
