Barred Parakeet

About the Barred Parakeet

Also known as: Lineolated Parakeet, Catherine Parakeet

Barred Parakeets, also known as Lineolated Parakeets, can be found in a large range from southern Mexico into South America as far as Colombia, Venezuela and the Andean mountains in Peru.

They live in forests and mountains and spend some of their time on the ground, where they prefer to run and climb rather than fly. They also don't mind cold weather and have been seen taking snow baths. How cute is that?
