Brown-eared red-tailed parrot (Pyrrhura frontalis). This species has a rich grassy green plumage on the head and wings and brown ear coverts. On the chest there are feathers with yellowish edges characteristic of the genus. The abdomen and the undersurface of the tail feathers are maroon. These gullible birds are easily tamed in open-air cages, but do not like to communicate with their relatives too much.

Rocky parrot (Cyanoliseus patagonus). These birds are dominated by a dark olive brown color. The thorax is grayish brown, the tibiae are golden yellow, the middle of the abdomen is red. In adult birds, beaks are black, and at a young age they are partially white.

Long-tailed emerald parrot (Enicognathus leptorhynchus). The plumage is predominantly green, one red spot surrounds the wax, and the other is in the middle of the abdomen. Young birds have shorter beaks than adults, and areas of bare skin around the eyes are initially whitish rather than gray in color.
