Welcome to the Pionus Parrots Research Foundation web site!

The Pionus Parrots Research Foundation was founded in 1999 with these goals:


Bronze-winged pionus feathers
The PPRF conducted a preliminary study in Mindo Ecuador in November, 1999 concentrating on three species: Pionus chalcopterus (Bronze-winged parrot), Pionus sordidus (Red-billed parrot), and Pionus seniloides (White-headed parrot). A two-part general interest article about the trip was published in The Original Flying Machine (No longer available online) in its July and September 2000 issues.

A second trip in January/February 2001 examined the breeding behaviors of wild Bronze-winged Pionus parrots.

Subsequent visits have confirmed original sightings and deepened our understand of the three species which regularly visit the valley. Accordingly, we have organized a formal study to begin in Summer of 2004.

Pionus Information

The PPRF is building the most complete reference resource of Pionus Parrot information available anywhere. This area is also under construction, but please visit our links page to view a list of links to other sites from all over the world. If you have a Pionus page and do not see it listed, tell us.

In addition to links, we will host a chat board where PPRF members can ask questions, share experiences, and learn of new activities of the PPRF. For more information about becoming a PPRF member, click here
