Red-masked Parakeet (Psittacara erythrogenys), Ecuador or Peru, South America

The Red-masked Parakeet originates from South America and is grass green with a solid red plumage mask covering the forecrown, crown and cheeks. It is one of the best talking birds and therefore is a popular pet. The species has declined in Ecuador and Peru, due to habitat loss and fragmentation, along with trapping for the pet trade. Escaped pets have led to wild parakeet colonies in North America. Collected by Mrs Moor in 1909
