I think I've heard that before...that's how it goes with common names. But, scientist are continually changing scientific names, as well.

Have you ever heard these referred to (common name) as "nanday conure?" When I worked in zoos, that's what we called them but lately I keep hearing "black hooded." Any thoughts on that?
