Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Tiny short-tailed parrot, endemic to Java and Bali. Leaf-green overall, with a bright red rump, pale eyes, and dainty orange bill. Pale orange patch on the chest is not always apparent. No similar species exist in its restricted range. Inhabits forested and wooded areas in lowlands and foothills. Due to its size and coloration, can be difficult to see; listen for its high-pitched “tsee!”, often given while in flight. Unlike larger parrots, does not tend to gather in large flocks, usually moving singly or in pairs. Often visits flowers.
