The Barred Parakeet (Bolborhynchus lineola), also known as Lineolated Parakeet or Catherine Parakeet, is a parrot found in a large range across western Panama, southern Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, northern Colombia, Venezuela and the Andean mountains in Peru.
They are found in the wild in groups of 6 to 30 although bigger groups (up to 150 birds) are known. They eat fruit, dry seeds, germinated seeds and even insect larvae.
They frequently prefer to run and climb rather than fly.
One of the most recognizable and entertaining characteristic of lineolated parakeets is that they enjoy bathing and being misted with water. Most parrots do, but lineolated parakeets have a more cured passion for water. They will hang upside down, flap and open their wings, and enjoy every moment of being bathed.
