Oranged-chinned Parakeet

Brotogeris jugularis

Small parakeet
Green to yellow-green plumage
Brown patch on wings
Small orange patched under bill
Horn-coloured, hooked bill
White eye-ring
Brown eye

Though plentiful in number given the racket they made, I had difficulty locating these birds as they tended to perch high in the trees and blended in with the bright green foliage.
