Red-lored Parrot

Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia, California

Red-lored Parrot are gregarious, meaning that they live in flocks. These birds are often noisy, unless resting or eating. Their call is screechy, loud and unmelodic. They are highly intelligent parrots and will use their beaks to test new surfaces, climb and husk seeds. Flying with shallow stiff wing-strokes makes them easy to identify in flight.
