|Yellow-chevroned Parakeet Brotogeris
(aka Chiriri Parakeet)
Brazilian name: periquito-de-encontro-amarelo
The Yellow-chevroned Parakeet is distributed in central and eastern Brazil, northern Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia. It is found in gallery forest, open woodland and caatinga. There is a distribution map on NatureServe. Note the introduced population in California.
|It looks similar to Canary-winged
Parakeet Brotogeris versicolurus with which it is
often treated as being conspecific but, while it shares the
yellow of the secondary coverts, it lacks that species white on
Jeremy Minns' recording is of the bird in photo 1.
