Painted conure

two known subspecies
Common name is Black-capped conure. Again these birds are small, quiet and very playful. As a pet I feel they are the ones with the best disposition long term.

Green cheeked conure

Pyrrhura melanura, Maroon-tailed conure. There are five known sub species. Sub-species  Pyrrhura m. souancei  This is the most common sub species
found in the pet market. These are a little larger than the Black-capped and very sweet birds.

Comparison characteristics between Souance and Black-capped are not easily seen in a photo: The Black-capped is considerably smaller than the Souance, has a tinier head, different tail color, and a full black cap on the head.

For more information

Souance conure

The bird shown here has the common name of Souance conure.

We have become enamored of the Pyrrhura conures in the last few years. We will be adding more of this type of conure to our breeding program as they seem to fit the lifestyle of today's families. They are quiet, easy keepers, and fun birds to own.

Stop back again and see what we add.
