The Olive-throated Parakeet (Eupsittula nana) is a common Aratinga of forest and scrub in its range. Two subspecies are recognized, with the nominate subspecies found in Jamaica and the other distributed along the east slope of Central America. The Central American subspecies is sometimes treated as a separate species called the Aztec Parakeet.
Olive-throated Parakeets have a pale bill, green head, back, and tail, an olive throat and bold, whitish eye-ring. The species is often located by the strident shrieks of flocks moving through the forest. [Neotropical Birds]
