The Hispaniolan Parakeet (Aratinga chloropteras) occurs in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. There exist small feral populations in Puerto Rico, and possibly Florida, and Guadeloupe. Suggestions that Hispaniolan Parakeets might be extinct from Haiti contrast with reports that they are common in the Massif de la Selle and la Citadelle area of the Massif du Nord. In any case, the entire population is about 2,500 to 10,000, and so this bird is considered “Vulnerable” and should not be trapped or hunted.
