The male, shown here, as its name indicates, has bright patches of colour (red, gold/orange, royal blue) on a turquoise-green background.
The female, not shown, like its relative the Red-rumped Parrot and other grass parakeets, has more muted plumage.
She has an olive-coloured head and neck and duller patches of colour, but has a red patch rather than gold on her upper wing.
