Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small parrot of rainforest regions. Generally uncommon; distinctive black-and green plumage and purple tail render it unmistakable on the rare occasions it is seen well. Often first detected high overhead in large flocks that may bypass observers entirely, or else descend into forest canopy to feed quietly on flowers and fruit. Flight call is a strident, purring squeal.
