Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce and local large green parrot of tropical lowland savannas and semiopen areas with forest patches and big trees (but often seen in cages). Like many parrots, usually seen in pairs, not mixing with other species. The head of Mexican birds has extensive yellow (less so on immatures) and the bill is pale. Birds in Belize and Honduras have less yellow on the head. This species is often trapped for the pet trade, which means it has been eliminated from much of its historic range.
