Blaze-winged Parakeet Pyrrhura devillei

  • © Cal Martins

The Blaze-winged Parakeet is similar in appearance to the Maroon-bellied Parakeet (Pyrrhura frontalis), from which it differs primarily by the bright red and yellow underwing coverts. The distributions of these two species are largely separate, but they narrowly overlap in Paraguay, and there are reports that Blaze-winged and Maroon-bellied parakeets hybridize in that region. Blaze-winged Parakeets forages in gallery forest along rivers, and also enters adjacent chaco woods. The conservation status of the attractive but poorly-known Blaze-winged Parakeet is assessed as Near-Threatened, due to the extent of habitat loss and fragmentation within its range.
