The painted conure (Pyrrhura picta), also known as the painted parakeet, has a relatively long pointed tail and a mainly green plumage. The feathers on the chest are dark with broad whitish-grey tips, resulting in a distinctly scaled effect. The rump, central belly and tip to the tail are maroon-red, and the primary-coverts and outer webs of the primaries are blue. It is restricted to forests in northern South America (north of the Amazon River) and Panama. It has red on the leading edge of the wing, but this is often difficult to see. They nest in the cavities of dead and living trees - often at considerable height. The Painted Conure was formerly a species with eight subspecies. It is now classified as one, with all of the subspecies being granted full species status.
