The adult male and female are similar in appearance, with predominantly golden-yellow plumage and orange-flushed under-parts and face. Sun Conures are very social birds, typically living in flocks. They form monogamous pairs and nest in palm tree cavities. This species is currently threatened by loss of habitat and trapping for the pet trade and listed as endangered by the IUCN. Sun Conures are popular as pets because of their bright colouration and curious nature. They are commonly bred in avi-culture and can live upto 30 years.Sun Conures are mostly found in tropical habitats occurring within dry Savannah woodlands and coastal forests in altitudes less than 1,200 metres, on edge of humid forests growing in foothills. Like other members of the genus Aratinga, the Sun Conure is very social and typically occurs in large flocks of 20 to 30 individuals.
