White-eyed Parakeet, Aratinga Ojiblanca, Aratinga leucophthalma,

This is a widespread species from Colombia south to northern Argentina. It can be found in a variety of habitats from open woods to mangroves. They can be present in large numbers. At Rurrenabaque in the evening we watched flocks totalling 200 going to roost in forest near the Rio Beni. This bird was photographed in the Lomas de Arena Reserve near Santa Cruz in late August 2012.
