Brown-hooded Parrot

Brown-hooded Parrots are adversely affected by deforestation, but are not presently considered to be vulnerable. They are distributed primarily over the Caribbean slope of Central America, from eastern Mexico south to Panama, and extreme northern Colombia (Cornell; Wikipedia).
Brown-hooded Parrots visited the feeders at the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge. We saw them on 12 and 13 July 2017.
They inhabit lowlands and foothills in open woodlands and secondary forests. Small flocks often feed on seeds and fruits. Away from feeders, they can be hard to see since they are slow moving and silent.
