Good job!

This parrot is mostly dark green with darker flight feathers and is about 16 in. long with a long pointed tail. Adult males have continuous yellow foreheads and throats, with a red horizontal band across the border of the throat. An Australian endemic, this parrot is restricted to the dry woodlands of New South Wales and Victoria. There is estimated to be at least 10,000 individuals in the wild. What am I?

You are amazing Stephanie!

This parrot is mostly green, with the lowerparts being a lighter green than the underparts. Black/grey beak. Some blue in the wing feathers. It is found widely in woodland, savanna, and scrub in northern South America, in Columbia, Venezuela, the Guianas, the ABC islands inthe netherland Antilles, and northern Brazil. This parrot is in the Psittttacidae family. What am I?

Brown throated parakeet. Alright Hannah. Rebuttal time. And since you're getting your information off of Wikipedia (what?! I know your secrets?), I'm going to give you less information for you to guess.

This parrot is sexually dimorphic. Cocks have washes of orange and green while hens washes are green. As juveniles, all chicks look like cocks until 4-5 months of age, females lose their orange color. They are relatively quiet but can produce a shrill call.

This is all I am giving you. Straight from my mind.

What makes you think I'm getting this stuff from wikipedia? Will you at least tell me where it lives?

Wait... you're not? Wow then you're good! I browse Wikipedia on parrots a lot, so I actually know odd parrot facts and species.

I am a small, green parrot from Australia. I usually live in enormous flocks and I am known for my fantastic talking ability. I am the most common companion parrot.

What am I?
