A small green parrot with a red forehead, an orange bill, a dark purple eye patch and crown, and a yellow collar. Juveniles show a brown bill. Found in small groups, mainly in the foothills, in forest and a variety of wooded areas. Confined to Wetar and Timor, where it overlaps with the larger and longer-tailed Marigold and Olive-headed Lorikeets. Iris Lorikeet shows a red forehead and pale throat, lacking the dark-hooded appearance of those lorikeets. Gives high-pitched screeches, “eeek,” similar to other lorikeets, but less harsh.
