They are normally found in pairs or in small family groups. They can be seen with other species of psittacidae, above all when they fly down to the ground to complete their diet with mineral sands.
They are not migratory birds. Although this species has very extensive distribution and is considered to be relatively common, its population continues to slowly diminish.
The adults are hunted for consumption and for their pretty feathers, and the chicks for sale as pets.
