Sun Conure: Aratinga solstitialis
Distribution and Habitat
Sun conures can be found throughout South America, but are primarily seen North of the Amazon River in Brazil.
Usually found in scrublands near the banks of the Amazon River, Sun conures can generally be located near any heavily vegetated area.
Growing approximately 30 cm in length, Sun conures are bright yellow with red markings on the sides of their head with a red-orange tinge stretching across their forehead.
With proper care, Sun conures can live up to 30 years given the right diet and living conditions.
