SPECIES INFO

The Blaze-winged Parakeet (Pyrrhura devillei), more commonly known as the Blaze-winged Conure in aviculture, is a species of parrot found in wooded habitats in the Pantanal-region of Brazil and Paraguay. It remains locally fairly common, and is therefore considered to be of least concern by BirdLife International and IUCN. The type specimen is labelled Bolivia, but due to shifting borders it is now believed to be from Paraguay. It has often been considered a subspecies of the Maroon-bellied Parakeet based on intermediate specimens from Paraguay, but the two generally maintain their integrity, and are therefore considered separate species by all major authorities today. They resemble each other, but the Blaze-winged Parakeet has a dusky crown and red "shoulder" and underwing coverts.
