A chunky green inhabitant of wet forests; typically found in pairs or small flocks in or near the canopy. Note this species’ yellow bill, rosy throat, and white eyering. The somewhat similar Black-billed Parrot is distinguished from Yellow-billed Parrot by its black bill, black eyering, and green throat. When the two species are together, the larger size of the Yellow-billed is evident. The characteristics noted above also separate this species from other parrots that might have escaped from captivity. Calls include a a “maa-weep” and a “mwah” that is not as harsh as the corresponding call of the Black-billed Parrot.
