Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A chunky green resident of moist upland forests. No other native parrots occur within its range, but the Red-crowned Parrot, native to Mexico, is often kept in captivity and looks very similar. The Red-crowned Parrot has more extensive red on the forehead than the Puerto Rican Parrot, has a small red patch on its wings, and has gray, not flesh-colored, legs and feet. Calls include a loud harsh “wee-uh.”
