There are various species of conures found across this region including Green-cheeked Conure, Lilac-crowned Parakeets, Jenday Conures with Sunburst Conures, Nanday Parakeets among many others.

Conures make excellent pets because they speak well and are energetic. Their lifespan exceeds 30 years, giving you plenty of time to bond with them. Unfortunately, due to being larger birds (averaging 15 inches long), conures require a large cage or aviary where they can move freely around freely.
