Orange-chinned Parakeet

Brotogeris jugularis

Overview 2

The Orange-chinned Parakeet is a small, conspicuous parrot common in southern Mexico, Central America, and northwestern South America. It is green overall, with obvious contrasting brown upperwing coverts and a much less conspicuous orange chin patch. Flocks are frequently observed flying about or feeding, often in the open on exposed branches, in open woodlands, savanna, forest edge, and parks and gardens. Like most other parrots, they nest in adopted cavities or excavate their own hole in a soft substrate, such as a termitarium.
