That's Jose Carioca, the parrot who appeared in two of Disney's South American feature-length films: Saludos Amigos, and, The Three Caballeros.


This insignia design was created in the summer of 1944 by famed Disney artist Hank Porter. The design was created for a bomber attached to the 379th Bombardment Group, 527th Bombardment Squadron.


Here is the original pencil art, which resides in a friend's collection:
