Hybrid Parrots Since the aim of the site is to aid identification, it is useful to recognise hybrids.

Hybrids of various parrots in captivity: while birds, particularly parrots and finches, hybridise in captivity, it is rare for them to do in the wild (except ducks and pheasants). There are some stable hybrid races in the wild -- e.g. Adelaide Rosella.

Hybrids take on both the appearance and the behaviours of each parent -- which can lead to some confusion where parent species have different habits or diets.
Jenanday Conure with Nanday
Nanjenday Conure with Nanday
Jenday Parakeet
The parents were a Nanday Conure, as shown beside the hybrid above, and a Jenday, shown above right, making the hybrid either a Nanjenday or a Jenanday.
