Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A rather large, dark, and stout resident of wet upland forest. Note iridescent purple underparts, vivid green upperparts, and hefty black bill. The Red-necked Parrot, the only other native species within its range, can be readily separated from the Imperial Parrot by its largely green plumage and the red (not purple) patch on its throat. Most common call is a yelping "weep", also gives a loud, scratchy “eee-er.”
