Aratinga guarouba
Also know as the Queen of Bavaria conure, the golden conure is bright yellow with green wing feathers. Compared to other parrots, its beak is large relative to its body size, and is used as a “third foot” while climbing. Deforestation and the exotic pet trade are taking a toll on golden conure populations in the wild.
