The Blue-winged Parrotlet is a small parrot found in riparian and gallery forest from Colombia to southern Brazil and northern Argentina. Blue-winged Parrotlets are green overall, with slightly more yellow-green tones on the underparts. Males also have blue on the bend of the wing, underwing-coverts, lower back and rump. Females lack any blue, and instead are completely green. Blue-winged Parrotlets feed on a variety of fruits and seeds, sometimes coming to the ground to forage. Blue-winged Parrotlets in Argentina move seasonally as different plant communities flower, while populations in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil are altitudinal migrants.
