Carolina Parakeet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

America's extinct parrot, has anyone ever looked into this story ?

I've seen the stuffed examples at the L.A. Natural History museum and it's egg on display at the San Bernadino Museum's egg collection.

I've wondered why it hasn't been reclassified as an Aratinga Conure as it's size, coloration and other factors seem to show it's close relation to other Aratingas like Sun and Goldcap Conures.

Used as a fashion statement and hunted out of existenceAny thoughts ?

What a lovely bird! Yes, it sure does look like every Conure (basically) I've seen. What a rotten shame. was playing with a beautiful Conure at the pet store today as a matter of fact. Cheating on my Senegal.
