Orange-fronted Parakeet - Eupsittula canicularis

The Orange-fronted Parakeet is common in the lowlands and up to about 1,500 feet along the Pacific Coast from Mexico to Costa Rica.
Enjoying some tasty flowers!

These two young Orange-fronted Parakeets were patiently perched in the Granada market. With clipped wings, they will become a pet for someone.
