Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A striking, brightly-colored long-tailed parrot confined to Sulawesi and satellite islands. Green with an orange bill, a purple face, a red throat and red-barred chest, and a prominent yellow stripe on the side of the neck. Juveniles have a brown bill and a yellow belly. Found in pairs or small parties in upper levels of forest and wooded areas, including plantations, in lowlands and foothills. Unmistakable, as it is the only long-tailed parakeet with red markings in its limited range. Utters various shrill screeches such as “KREET!” and “SKEET!”
