The white-winged or canary winged parakeets (Brotogeris versicolurus) are also known as "Bee Bee" and "Pocket parrots." At 8.5 to 9.5 inches in length and weighing 65 to 75 grams, they are the largest of the brotogeris family. They are slightly larger than grey cheeked parakeets or lovebirds.
The plumage of the canary-wing is lime green in color; a little darker green on the breast and underneath. The canary-winged parakeet has a trailing yellow edge on its folded wings. One of its most distinguished characteristics is the white wing patches that are most noticed when this parakeet is in flight. There are some blue marks under the tail and possibly on the wings. The eyes are brown; the beak is pale and the legs are pinkish in color.
Although, not excellent talkers they can pick up several words or sentences.
