Buy Dusky Headed Parakeet (Conure) Online
The dusky-headed parakeet (Aratinga weddellii), also known as Weddell’s conure or dusky-headed conure in aviculture, is a small green Neotropical parrot with a dusty grey head found in wooded habitats in the western Amazon basin of South America. Its range extends from southeastern Colombia south through eastern Ecuador, eastern Peru, and southwest Amazonian Brazil, to central Bolivia. It prefers semi-open habitats such as várzea, forest edge, and forest remnants, but can also be found in coffee plantations. It is generally common and its habitat preference makes it less vulnerable than many other Amazonian species. Consequently, it is considered to be of the least concern by BirdLife International and IUCN.
