It prefers to live in mangrove forests or forests near rivers or other bodies of water. It is a large green parrot with yellow head. The flight feathers are all tipped blue-black, with a patch of red on secondary feathers and at bend in wing. The bird has a curved yellow beak, grey legs and feet. Feeds on fruits, seeds, and buds.
