Maroon Bellied and Black Capped Conures

There several species of this kind of small parrot. They are very intelligent and have strong personalities.They are not endangered, and live in small flocks that roam the forests and woodlands of Brazil and neighbouring countries of South America. They can often be seen foraging in the parks of bigger cities.

We have a female Maroon Bellied Conure called Joey, who has a very friendly personality. Her mate is a different, but closely related species. We think he is a Black Capped Conure. We gave him the name Bad because it describes his behaviour so well!
