Description

White Bellied Caiques (Pionites leucogaster) are not only some of the most colorful birds in the parrot family, but are very intelligent and quick to learn tricks. They are affectionate, inquisitive, and love to show off. A distinguishing characteristic of the Caique is a lovely ruffled looking white breast and belly. The green-thighed parrot is a subspecies of the White Bellied Caique belonging to the Psittacidae family. The species Pionites leucogaster contains three subspecies including the nominate race, but recent morphological work suggests the species should be split into three.

White Bellied Cacique and Black Headed Cacique

I received the two referenced hand fed caciques ten days ago at Delta Cargo in Las Vegas. They arrived healthy and didn't seem stressed. The travel container was well stocked with chopped apple and fruit blend seed. Within several days, I had each parrot perching on my finger and they are very playful. They are playmates and very bonded. That is one reason I bought them as a pair. They enjoy playing on their new play stand and have adjusted to their new life beautifully. Bird farms in CA never have Caiques anymore. Many thanks to The Finch Farm for fulfilling my dreams and family.
