Matomo-Image-Tracker Psittaciformes - Graydidascalus


Short Tailed Parrot - Graydidascalus Brachyurus - Least Concern

The short-tailed parrot (Graydidascalus brachyurus) is the only species of the genus Graydidascalus. It is found along both banks of the Amazon river and other major Amazonian rivers in Brazil, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. As suggested by its range, it is associated with the specific forest and woodland types growing near major rivers, although it also extends into the coastal deltas of French Guiana and Amapá, Brazil.

The closest relative is the yellow-faced parrot (Alipiopsitta xanthops) and the members of the genus Pionus.
