Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A medium-sized green parakeet with a long tail and red underwings and thighs (red on the thighs not easy to see). Similar to Mitred Parakeet, but usually has more red on the face, extending below and behind the eye. Usually seen in pairs or flocks of up to 30 about birds. Calls are loud screeches. Introduced to the Hawaiian Islands where it is widespread on the western side of Hawaii Island in dry coastal areas. On Oahu roosts at Black Point near Diamond Head and disperses during the day to forage.
