Blue-cheeked Parrot

The Blue-cheeked Parrot is endemic to the Guianas, which includes Guyana, south-eastern Venezuela, and northern Brazil. With a low population density, it is rarely spotted. Seasonal migrations to and from coastal sand ridge forests in Suriname provide serious birders specific timelines to visit. At other times of the year, the species stays within the interiors of forests, sometimes even in the higher regions or woodlands in the savannah. The Blue-cheeked Parrot is threatened due to loss of habitat and the caged bird trade
