Blue-crowned Parakeet

Psittacara acuticaudatus (Vieillot, 1818)

The Blue-crowned Parakeet, Blue-crowned Conure, or Sharp-tailed Conure (Thectocercus acuticaudatus) is the only parakeet species in the monotypic genus Thectocercus native to large parts of South America, from eastern Colombia in the north to northern Argentina in the south. They inhabit savanna-like habitats, woodland and forest margins, but avoid dense humid forest such as the Amazon. Source: Wikipedia
