Species

Aratinga is a genus of American parakeets. They belong to the long-tailed group and are among the genera often called conures in aviculture. Most are predominantly green, although a few are predominantly yellow or orange. They are social and commonly seen in groups in the wild.

Many species from this genus are popular pets, although being larger than the members of the genus Pyrrhura, they need a sizable aviary to thrive.

The taxonomy of some groups is difficult, especially the Aratinga solstitialis complex,[1] A. mitrata complex,[2] A. holochlora complex,[3] and A. pertinax (-complex).[4] Additionally, the Golden Parakeet has been included in Aratinga, but is now generally placed in the monotypic Guarouba.

The Peach-fronted Parakeet (Aratinga aurea) is a species of parrot in the Psittacidae family. It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, and Suriname. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, dry savanna, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, and heavily degraded former forest.
