MARCON, Amanda Perin  e  ANDRIOLA, João Vitor Perin. Mating display of the Yellow-chevroned Parakeet (Brotogeris chiriri Vieillot, 1818) (Psittaciformes: Psittacidae). Curr. Ethol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp. 19-23. ISSN 2594-9985.

The Yellow-chevroned Parakeet (Brotogeris chiriri) is naturally found in South America. It feeds on fruits, flowers and seeds, and can be found in arboreal landscapes and inside cities. Its breeding season extends from May to September. On the morning of 09 September of 2017 a couple was visualized while mating in Puerto Iguazú, Argentina. This work describes the sequence and the duration of this species mating behaviors. Similar behaviors can be visualized for other parrots, but differ on duration and sequence. As parrots are trade victims, it is important to know the mating aspects of this species for its future conservancy in case it becomes threatened of extinction in the future.
