|Tui Parakeet Brotogeris sanctithomae|
The Tui Parakeet is distributed in Amazonian Brazil, south-east Colombia, eastern Peru and north-eastern Bolivia. There is a distribution map available at NatureServe. It is found in secondary growth and scrub especially close to water.
|It is distinguished by its
yellow forehead and its pale iris. It also has a dark reddish
bill which is quite conspicuous in both these photos though this
feature is not normally emphasised in the literature.
Jeremy Minns' recording is of the bird shown in photo 1.
