The birds in the image below have a lot in common, but one of them doesn't really belong. Can you pick out the species of parakeet that doesn't go with the others, and tell us why it doesn't' belong? Visit the meet page if you need help identifying the birds and finding out which one doesn't belong.
We've added three new parrots from South America, namely the Blue-crowned Conure, Nanday Conure and Patagonian Conure. These three new Birdorable birds were requested by several customers. Conures are either large parakeets or small parrots that live in Central and South America (the extinct Carolina Parakeet was an exception). Conures are often called the clowns of the parrot world due to their constant attention seeking behavior including hanging upside-down and swaying back and forth.
The latest parrot to be added to Birdorable is this lovely Green-cheeked Parakeet from South America. These small parrots live in Mato Grosso, a western state of Brazil, and across Bolivia and Northern Argentina. In aviculture they are also known as Green-cheeked Conures and they love to eat fruit like bananas. Check out this cutie sitting on a banana tree in Brazil:
