Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very local, long-tailed, and social parrot of mountains endemic to northeast Mexico. Feeds in pine and pine-oak forests and adjacent semiopen areas with orchards and flowering century plants. Nests colonially in tall cliff-face "apartments." Usually found in flocks of 10–100 birds, less often in scattered pairs; often located by its far-carrying, raucous laughing calls. No similar species in its range; note the dark red forehead, small red shoulder patches.
