@ Juan, the conure is closely related to the macaw, but they are still considered separate families.

@Marco, the sun conure is a south american bird with an extremely limited range(NE part of the continent). How did these birds end up in the Philippines? Pet trade? Breeding program?

Gorgeous shot!
