Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized parakeet with long pointed tail. Most distinctive in flight, when the wings look mostly bright yellow. When perched, look for the isolated red cheek patch, which is unlike any other parakeet in range. Sexes similar. Found in small flocks, usually in forested areas or edges. Calls are high-pitched and squeaky.
