|White-winged Parakeet Brotogeris
(aka Canary-winged Parakeet)
The White-winged Parakeet is found in the Amazon Basin in seasonally flooded várzea forest, in secondary forest and on river islands. There is a distribution map on NatureServe showing also the introduced population in California.
It is sometimes treated as being conspecific with Yellow-chevroned Parakeet B. chiriri but both species are reported from eastern Pará without any interbreeding.
|The main identification
feature is the yellow and white on the upper wings, the bare
lores and the bluish tinge to the face and forehead.
Jeremy Minns recording is of the same small flock from which photos 2 to 4 were taken.
