Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, long-tailed green parrot with an orange bill and a wing patch, red in males and yellow in females, that is visible both perched and in flight. Juvenile is like female, but lacks wing patch. Singles or small flocks can be found in a variety of wooded areas, like forests and plantations, in lowlands and mountains. Limited to a few islands in the Lesser Sundas. Distinguished from Olive-headed and Marigold Lorikeets by its larger size, its broad square tail, and its lack of a dark hood. Gives raucous, shrill screeches, high-pitched tinkling, and lower-pitched “kraak-kraaak” calls.
