Tiny, social, and excited-sounding parrot of tropical lowlands endemic to west Mexico. Found in forests, plantations, and semiopen areas with tall trees, including towns and villages. Rarely seen far from fruiting fig trees, in which birds can be very difficult to see, because they are the size and color of fig leaves. Usually seen in flocks of 10–100 birds that move in fast, slightly bounding flight, flashing green and turquoise. No other small parrots in its range.
