A small, short-tailed parrot of lowland forest and edge. Green body with dark blue in the wing, black forecrown and cheek, a white line separating the cheek, crown and bill, and usually an orange chest. Female has orange behind the dark cheek. Races vary in appearance with some yellow-chested or blue crowned. Usually found in small groups. Most similar to Double-eyed Fig-Parrot, but Orange-breasted has a dark blue or black instead of red forecrown and cheek. Calls, a sharp, high-pitched “tsik!” or excited twittering which often betrays their present in a tree.
