- Erythrura trichroa
The Blue-crowned Conure is a parakeet native to large parts of South America, from eastern Colombia in the north to northern Argentina in the south. They inhabit grassland, forest margins, and semi-arid regions.
Blue-crowns are predominantly green, with dull blue coloring on the forehead, crown, cheeks, and ears.
The most famous fictional Blue-crowned Conure is the title character in the 1998 movie Paulie. The movie caused a surge in the popularity of Blue-crowned Conures as pets.
