Blue-winged, Large-billed or Turquoise-winged Parrotlet

Forpus [xanthopterygius, crassirostris or spengeli] (= Forpus xanthopterygius) (von Spix, 1824)

The Blue-winged Parrotlet (Forpus xanthopterygius) is a small parrot found in much of South America. It includes the Turquoise-rumped Parrotlet (Forpus xanthopterygius spengeli), which sometimes is treated as a separate species. The Blue-winged Parrotlet is mainly found in lowlands, but locally up to 1200m in south-eastern Brazil. It occurs in woodland, scrub, savanna, and pastures. Flocks are usually around 20 birds but can grow to over 50 around fruiting trees or seeding grasses. It is generally common and widespread, though more localized in the Amazon Basin.
