The most numerous parrot on the Pacific Slope of Central America, Orange-fronted Parakeet is found from western Mexico south to Costa Rica. Primarily colored a dull green, Orange-fronted Parakeet has an orange-peach forehead and lores, dull blue mid-crown, olive-brown throat and breast, yellow green belly and blue flight feathers. This parakeet inhabits a variety of habitats including forest edge, deciduous woodland, Pacific swamp forest, savanna, arid thorn scrub and even cow pastures and urban areas. This bird feeds primarily on fruits and flowers, but outside of the breeding season, large flocks have been known to cause damage to maize and ripening bananas. Orange-fronted Parakeet nests primarily in self excavated cavities in arboreal termitariums.
