‘Conure’ is a very general term for a bunch of genera of parakeets or small parrots naturally found in Central and South America. Many are kept as pets, some more commonly than others. Popular genera include Pyrrhura (including the very popular green-cheeked conure), Aratinga (including the sun conure), Psittacara and the monotypic Cyanoliseus patagonus (Patagonian conure).
Conures are loving companions that make great pets, but they do need some special care and training. They can be loud (especially the genus Aratinga) and mischievous, so make sure you do some research. Here, you’ll find articles on such things as conure lifespan, the different species, general care and more.
