Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Tiny, rather long-tailed green parakeet of the Andes; also locally in coastal lowlands of Peru. Usually in small groups. Found in rocky valleys with scrubby bushes, around nearby bogs and agricultural areas, usually not far from cliffs or banks where nests colonially in holes. Feeds in bushes and on the ground. Plumage is bright green overall with a bluer cast to wing feathers; some northern populations (in Peru) have a yellow face and breast.
