Psittacara mitratus | mitred parakeet
Other Names: mitred conure
Mitred parakeets have red foreheads and irregularly placed red facial feathers on an otherwise green body with somewhat long tails. This escapee from the pet trade is often seen in small flocks. Despite eradication attempts after its introduction in 1986 the mitred parakeet persists on the island of Maui. Originally, this species is native to the forested regions of the Andes Mountains.
