The Patagonian Conure is known by natives around the region due to its friendly demeanor, small size, cute face, and bright colors. Locals call these birds “little clowns” because of their small stature and funny personalities.

They can live up to 20 years, mainly because they’re not kept in cages but allowed to fly freely around the home and roam indoors as nature intended. In true captivity, they could live up to 30 years!

Their population has been declining recently, and measures might have to be put in place to prevent further dwindling of the wild population.

The origins of this beautiful bird can be traced back to South America, specifically the temperate rainforests of Chile. They live in flocks of 12-30 and usually mate for life.
