Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Tiny, short-tailed green parrot. Note bright red bill and red rump. Male has a bright powder-blue throat patch. Often perches high in the forest canopy and proves difficult to see; listen for its odd, high-pitched “zi-zi-zi” given while in flight. Inhabits wooded habitats from primary forest to agricultural edge; some populations undertake regional migrations.
