About Me

Scientific Name Aratinga solstitialis

Description

At times these birds can be surprisingly inconspicuous as they feed quietly amidst shrubby vegetation. But in flight they are extremely noisy, and their screeching call-notes can be heard long before the birds come into view. The flight is swift and direct.

Fun Facts

  • One of the most beautifully colored of the conures, this species is a great favorite with the natives, who raise many young birds by hand.
  • These birds use cavities in palm trees as nesting sites, but the details of its breeding behavior in the wild are still unknown.
