Pionus (pionus parrots)

Wikipedia Abstract

Pionus is a genus of medium-sized parrots native to Mexico, and Central and South America. Characteristic of the genus are the chunky body, bare eye ring (which can vary in color), and short square tail. They are superficially similar to Amazon parrots, but smaller and in flight their wing-strokes are far deeper. Coloration is generally subdued yet complex; under bright lighting, their feathers shimmer with iridescent brilliance.
