Canary Wing/BeeBee Parrot

Can someone tell me how loud/frequently loud is a Canary Wing Parakeet? Also I heard there are common mix up between a Chevron Wing (all yellow on wing) and Canary wing (or white wing). What is the price difference typically between one with only yellow on the wing, and the one with white/yellow wing?

I can't tell you much about prices on these interesting little birds as they vary from breeders and the stores that sell them. They are about the same noise level as a cockatiel or conure they make cute little grunting clucking noises and can be very affectionate and cuddly. Like most birds that get spooked by something they will let out a loud alarm call.


There are a bunch of videos on youtube of these birds so you can judge their noise levels by checking out some clips.


SPRING! Coming soon.... I hope

Brotogeris species tend to be quite quiet and from the ones I've had the pleasure of seeing they have been almost silent. The chevron winged IS the canary winged parakeet (brotogeris chiriri). The white winged (brotogeris versicolourus) used to be lumped with the canary winged but they aren't the same species. There's not much information on them unfortunately, they're not very popular in aviculture. I will say that they are VERY small. They look quite big in photos but don't be surprised to see something not much bigger than a lovie with a long tail I was shocked the first time I met them!

Canary wings seem to go for anywhere between $250 and $350 and I've seen white wings for sale for about $125 $175 so they seem to be the cheaper option of the two

Alexandrine parakeets, Indian ringneck parakeets, crimson rosellas, cockatiels, red fronted kakarikis, budgies, black masked lovies, black cheeked lovies, Fischer's lovies & peach faced lovies

How interesting, I must have gotten what I read mixed up.
I "happened" (ok admit I found an excuse) to stop by Petco for some Nutriberries and peeked at the birds. I was surprised to see a Parrotlet, and while attempting to handle him (poor little guy was scared so I backed off) this little green bird was Begging to come out. They guy opened the door, and out he came, steped up right away, nibbled on my finger and let me give him kisses. The sign said canary wing, so after I did some reading I went back a second time and saw him stretch, he did in fact have white also on the feathers. I'm so tempted and trying so hard not to think about him. I loved him even more when I noticed he had one little toe that was missing the nail. They don't know why, I'm guessing a sibling could have got at him in the nest. I read some forum posts of people complaining of screeching but I did ask the store clerk and he said he was quiet. I can't stand to see those Birds there. I really hate pet stores, both my Birds have come from small home breeders.
It's so hard not to want to bring him home with me! My husband loves birds too, we have two if you remember. A P'lett and a Bourke.
My Bourke is still doing fantastic by the way. He's become so tame I can't believe it. He's an awesome little bird.

Do you think these White wings are hard to come by? I never heard of one.

I know, I know! Note to self: NEVER LOOK AT THE BIRDS!!

There also is this little Parrotlet, I can't believe they even have one. He's 9 months old already and only knows the pet store. They don't really know how to handle him or understand that he will not be tame. I talked to him today and he perked up and when I started whistling he did a little wing flip and a chirp. I picked him up (because he would not step up, or even close) and cupped him in my hands and talked to him. I think the little guy has promise with the right person.

Oh me oh my.....
