Aratinga jandaya (Jandaya Parakeet)

Wikipedia Abstract

The jandaya parakeet or jenday conure (Aratinga jandaya) is a small Neotropical parrot with green wings and tail, reddish-orange body, yellow head and neck, orange cheeks and black bill native to wooded habitats in northeastern Brazil. It is a member of the Aratinga solstitialis complex of parakeets very closely related to, and possibly subspecies of sun parakeet. The bird has a wide range but is locally rare in the wild; they are common in aviculture where they are known as "jenday conures".
