History [ edit ]

The Patagonian Conure is a parrot native from the Patagonian region, the bottom of the South American continent and the only specie of the Cyanoliseus genus. However, there are three recognized subspecies. Patagonian means “big feet” in Spanish and this is one of the traits of this bird that set them apart from other conures.

The Patagonian conure grew in popularity around the 1990s which led to the illegal trading of the bird and it´s decline of population in the wild, especially the sub specie Greater Patagonian Conure (Cyanoliseus patagonus byroni). To the scarcity of the Patagonian Conure also contributed the persecution of these birds by locals due to their appetite for crops.
