June 12, 2017 – Grey-hooded Parakeet, Aymara parakeet, or Sierra parakeet (Psilopsiagon aymara)

These parakeets are found in Bolivia and Argentina in scrubland along the Andes mountains. Their diet probably consists of fruit, buds, and insects. Much of their time is spent in small flocks, foraging in shrubs or agricultural land. Large groups are often seen near water sources. They nest in hollows in sand banks, cacti, or abandoned buildings.
