Scarlet-fronted parakeet        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Scarlet-fronted parakeets are very common in and around the city of Cali in southwestern Colombia, where I took these photos.   Like most parrots they are very social (and loud), so the flocks are very noticeable.   I saw lots of them but these were the only ones that landed close enough for photos, and then very briefly; they were at about 2000 meters in the Western Andes above Cali.
