Crimson-fronted Parakeet (Psittacara finschi)

The Crimson-fronted Parakeet can be distinguished from other similar species by red on the forehead, pointed tail and red on wing. I had the pleasure to see a group of around 100 individuals flying near my parent’s home in Río Frío, Sarapiquí; whenever I approached them enough, they were spooked and flew all at the same time, becoming a green cloud of birds in the air that circled back to perch on the same area. The picture below was taken on April 16th, 2017.
