Genus Brotogeris


Yellow-chevroned Parakeet - The bird is 20-25 cm in length, and is mostly light green in color. It has a trailing yellow edge on its folded wings and is also seen when the bird is in flight. It is closely related to the Canary-winged Parakeet. In fact, it was considered conspecific until 1997.


Golden-winged Parakeet - The Golden-winged Parakeet can be found mostly in the eastern Amazon Basin, and upstream on the Amazon River to eastern Amazonas state Brazil; to the southwest, 1700 km upstream on the Madeira River to the border of Bolivia.


Cobalt-winged Parakeet - The range of the Cobalt-winged Parakeet is in the extreme western Amazon Basin in Brazil's states's of Amazonas, Acre, and Rondônia, part of the North Region; also from north to south, southernmost Venezuela, eastern Colombia-Ecuador-Peru, and northern and central Bolivia, and in Bolivia within the tributary rivers to the Madeira River flowing northeast to the Amazon River. One small disjunct, localized population occurs in Bolivia's northeast border region near the Guapore River headwaters.

Orange-chinned Parakeet - The Orange-chinned Parakeet is about 17.5 cm long. It is mainly green and some of the wing feathers are brown/bronze. It has a small clump of bright orange feathers under its beak, hence one of its common names; although, the orange feathers may not be visible depending of the parrots posture and the viewing angle. Its beak is horn coloured.


Grey-cheeked Parakeet - The Grey-cheeked Parakeet was described and named by John Latham in 1801.


Tui Parakeet - It is restricted to várzea and other wooded habitats near water. It is rare or entirely absent away from large rivers.

Plain Parakeet - Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and heavily degraded former forest. It is very common in the urban area of São Paulo, Brazil.


White-winged Parakeet - The White-winged Parakeet is 22 cm in length, and is mostly green in color. It has a trailing yellow edge on its folded wings. Its most distinguished characteristic is the white wing patches most noticed when the bird is in flight. It is closely related to the Yellow-chevroned Parakeet, and the two have often been considered conspecific.
