Bronze-winged Pionus

Bronze-winged Pionus


Species group:
 Pionus Parrots

Other name(s): Bronze-winged Parrot

Scientific name: Pionus chalcopterus

Appearance

Details: The Bronze-winged Pionus continues to win new fans. Once so little-known that an early 1991 survey of Pionus owners included only one Bronze-wing, this species has stepped to the forefront as more people become aware of its steady personality and remarkable looks. This mid-sized, easy-to-handle parrot loves to hang out with its people, but it isn't finicky or needy. Like most other Pionus, a properly-socialized Bronze-winged can be a good family bird, able to go to people of all ages, because it isn't a beaky or biting bird.
