The Black-winged lory (Eos cyanogenia), also known as Biak red lory is a medium-sized, up to 30 cm (12 in) long, long-tailed parrot. It has a bright red plumage, black shoulder, red iris, an orange red bill and violet ear-patch behind eye. The underwings are red, becoming yellowish with black tips. Both sexes are similar.

An Indonesian endemic, the black-winged lory is distributed to forests and coastal habitat of Biak, Numfoor, and Mios Num islands in Cenderawasih Bay, Papua. It frequents and roosts in coconut trees.

Due to ongoing habitat loss, small population size and hunted in some areas, the black-winged lory is evaluated as Vulnerable on IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is listed on Appendix II of CITES.
