Tinga is a jenday conure. Her name came from her Latin name Aratinga Jendaya.
She loves the camera and the camera obviously loves her!
This Brazilian beauty belongs to a family of long-tailed parrots, the tribe Arini, which also includes the Central and South American macaws. She actually looks like a mini macaw, and she is capable of vocalizations that can be heard several houses away - and we live on 5 acres! As the self-appointed family watch-dog, she announces our startled visitors with a call that obviously would serve her well in her native tropical forest.
