This Amazon-resident is found in the tropical gallery forests and can live for a very long time. Easily recognisable by the colour of its chest, its wings are red or yellow and its eyes are orange. This species nests in hollows in tall trees, with clutches of 3 or 4 eggs from which hatch blind, featherless chicks that will take about two months to leave the nest.
