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.

The White-bellied Caiques 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. referenced

Diet: The Caique's main diet should primarily be seeds, fruits, and green vegetables. A commercially prepared parrot mix or pelleted diet can also be beneficial. referencedanimal-world.com/encyclo/birds
