Mitred Conure Profile


Now: Psittacara mitrata
Was: Aratinga mitrata

» Also called Mitred Parakeet
» About 13 to 15” in length
» Central Peru south to northwestern Argentina
» Considered stable in its range, although it is considered an agricultural pest.
» Part of a closely related group of conures that includes the Red-masked (Cherry-head), Cuban, Finsch’s, Green, Hispaniolan, and Wagler’s Conures
» A fairly common conure companion

I worked with several of these conures some time ago and found them and the others in the conure group with red on their heads to be delightful companions. Unfortunately years ago they were cheap enough that many people didn't take them seriously and gave up on them. That is probably why so many have become feral.
