A record of the Scarlet-shouldered Parrotlet

R.G. Gibbs


While walking across Aripo Savannah on an early morning at the end of July I heard an unfamiliar bird call. I looked up and saw a flock of parrotlets, about fifteen in number, flying towards the Northern Range. They were similar in size to the lilac-tailed Parrotlet (Touit batavica), and as they flew I could see scarlet under the wings. The scarlet must have been quite extensive since it was conspicuous even tho ugh they were flying fairly high.
