More info: Conures are small to medium-sized members of the parrot family which are native to southern Mexico, South America and the Caribbean Islands. The pocket-sized celestial parrotlets are native to a broad region centred around Ecuador, Southwestern Columbia and Peru.

Conures range in size to just under 10 inches to just over 20 inches, depending on the species. They come in a range of eye-catching colours and have equally colourful personalities. Conures are active and busy birds that need plenty of toys and other forms of enrichment to keep them happily occupied throughout the day. Conures are capable of talking and, although their vocabularies are not as extensive as that of other parrot species, they can learn to speak a few words and phrases.

Celestial parrotlets reach an average length of just 5 inches and will weigh a mere ounce (30 grams). They are full of energy and mischief and love to hide and explore. Parrotlets are not noisy birds, making them ideal for people living in apartments.
