Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump parakeet found only at very high elevations in Colombia’s central Andes, where it is quite scarce. Plumage is nearly all green; the tiny patches of orange on its face and chin are only evident when the bird is seen well. Encountered in small flocks that feed in grassy and scrubby areas near tree line, including páramo and overgrown pastures. Gives soft, muted squawks in flight. Roosts and nests on cliffs.
