Orange-winged Parrot

About the Orange-winged Parrot

The Orange-winged Amazon, also known as the Orange-winged Parrot, is a large species of parrot that lives in tropical parts of South America.

Orange-winged Amazons are mostly green in plumage, with blue and yellow patches on the face. They are named for orange patches on the wings which can be seen when the bird is in flight. They are cavity nesters.

The Orange-winged Amazon is a popular pet bird species, though it is known to be a noisy bird which counts high-pitched screams in its repertoire. Colonies of escaped birds live around Miami, Florida, and London, England.
