Brotogeris versicolurus (White-winged Parakeet; Canary-winged Parakeet)

Wikipedia Abstract

The white-winged parakeet (Brotogeris versicolurus), once bundled in with the canary-winged parakeet, is a small parrot native to the Amazon River basin from southeast Colombia to the River’s mouth in Brazil. Caged birds have been released and the birds have established self-sustaining populations in Lima, Peru, the Los Angeles, San Francisco, California and Miami, Florida areas of the United States, and in Puerto Rico. Although feral birds are showing some recent declines as nesters in the United States, they seem to be doing well in their native habitat.
