Yellow Tailed Caique - Pionites Xanthurus - Vulnerable

The yellow-tailed parrot (Pionites xanthurus) is one of the four species in the genus Pionites of the family Psittacidae. Originally the species was considered to be a subspecies of Pionites leucogaster, but recent morphological work suggests the species should be split into three. The species is rare in captivity in comparison to other taxa of the genus.
