Orange-Chinned Parakeet

(Brotogeris jugularis)

As you can see, the Orange-Chinned Parakeet does in fact have a bright orange spot on its chin! I spotted one of these tiny short-tailed parakeets right outside my room at the Iguana Lodge in Puerto Jimenez (Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica.)

Like most parrots, they are capable of mimicking human speech! But their common contact call, given during flight, is often described as alternating between a “tinkling” sound and a buzz. They roost together in large groups at night, from 50 to 150 birds. The will slowly gather in a noisy group and then all pack together side by side into a single tree!
