Green bird, at least one foot long, with bright reddish-orange beak.
Suburban area on a mesic, tropical, insular lowland plateau.
Spotted feeding on palm fruit in my back yard. Numerous green parrots have exhibited this behavior since the palms fruited earlier in the summer. I set up a remote camera and managed to capture video of one of the parrots. The uploaded images are crops of frame captures from the video, and are unfortunately of low resolution. This species is not native to Hawaii; apparently escaped pets have managed to establish a feral population.
