Olive-throated Parakeet

I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this week I am sharing my Olive-throated Parakeet seen near the Sittee River in Hopkins, Belize.



The Olive-throated Parakeet a lifer for me, is also known as a Conure or Parrot. They have a pale bill and a green head, back and tail. They have a olive throat and a bold white eyering..


They can be found in Mexico, Caribbean and in Central America. I found this bird during a birding trip from our Almond Beach Resort in Hopkins.. I hope you enjoyed my post and the Olive-throated Parakeet. Thanks for stopping by my post and for all the nice comments.
