WEC257: Florida's Introduced Birds: Monk Parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus)

Figure 2. Two introduced parakeets, the White-winged (Brotogeris versicolurus) and Yellow-chevroned (B. chiriri, shown here) species, are highly similar in appearance to Monk Parakeets, but can be easily distinguished by their green chests and faces and the yellow band on their wings.
