The Red and Green (or green winged) macaw, and the Blue and Yellow (or blue and gold) macaw are both large South American Macaws.

Sun Conure

The Sun Conure is native to northeastern South America. This beautiful bird was in one of our local pet shops, for a horrendous amount of money. eBird has this listed as Sun Parakeet.

Zebra Finch

This was one of my birds, but we do have these in the wild in Australia. I used to have them visit my garden when I lived in Mooloolaba, sometimes, usually with Double-barred Finches....
