The red-billed parrot (Pionus sordidus) or red-billed pionus is a species of parrot in the family Psittacidae. It is found in humid subtropical forests in the Venezuelan Coastal Range, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, and in the Andes from Colombia in north to Bolivia in south (though with significant gaps). Uniquely for a member of the genus Pionus, its bill is almost entirely bright red. The plumage is greenish with a dull blue chest and red undertail coverts.
