A medium-sized, chunky parrot of lowland and foothill forest. Green body and crown, yellow-green streaked cheek and a blue patch behind the eye. Male has a red patch on the chest. Tail usually held to a point. Courtship behaviour includes head-bobbing and presenting pieces of peeled off bark. Similar to Edward’s Fig-Parrot and ranges may meet. Salvadori’s lacks the red streaked face and purple breast band. Call, a very shrill high-pitch note, sometimes followed by a high-pitch rough note “tsiik!-krrrk!”.
