The Golden-Winged Parakeet (Brotogeris chrysopterus)

The Golden-winged Parakeet  also known as a golden-wing     German: Braunkinnsittich
Again, with these Brotogeris profiles, I don't plan on recreating information on this cousin of the grey cheek, but thought I would provide links to information already available. Check out these pages on the web which include photos, habitat maps, videos, sound recordings, diet and other information regarding these parakeets.
