Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly small parrot of the Yucatan Peninsula, often in the same areas as the rather similar White-fronted Parrot, but the two species do not seem to mix in the same flocks. Found in forest and edge, less often in semi-open areas with scattered trees. Told from White-fronted Parrot by the dark cheek patch, and in flight shows a brighter green lower back than White-fronted. With a good view, note the small yellow face patch (‘lores’) at the bill base.
