INTERESTING FACTS

It is unclear if the US population of Green Parakeets are feral released birds or may be some wild vagrants which have moved north from Mexico.
This is the most northerly occurring Aratinga parakeet.
The Pacific Parakeet, formerly considered a distinct species, is now considered a subspecies.
A group of parakeets is collectively known as a "chatter" and a "flock" of parakeets.

The Green Parakeet has a large range, estimated globally at 261,000 square kilometers. Native to El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and even the southern part of Texas in the United States, this bird prefers subtropical or tropical forest or shrubland areas, though it has been known to reside in degraded former forests as well. The population has not been globally quantified, but is estimated to be experiencing decline at a rate too small to currently necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. Because of this, the current evaluation status of the Green Parakeet is Least Concern.
