White-winged Parakeet


(Brotogeris versicolurus)

Small colonies of White-winged Parakeet are established very locally in California and Florida. The white on the wings is just visible with the wings folded, but very prominent in flight. The species was formerly conspecific with Yellow-chevroned Parakeet, which has similar yellow on the wing but lacks the white, and has feathered lores (the part of the face between the eye and the beak), while the White-winged’s lores are unfeathered.
