Description: Sun Conures measure 12 inches (30cm) in length, including the long tail. They weigh between 3.5 – 4.5 oz (100 – 130g), with an average weight of 4 oz (110 g.)

Green cheek conures average weight is about 70 g – but the general weight range of this species is between 60 to 80 grams. The average length (including tail) is 10 – 11 inches (25 -27 cm).

In my role as an advocate for captive birds, I like to remind people that there are far more Conures than suns and green cheek’s.

We get in many inquiries on a regular basis starting with I have a con year. What surprises most people are that there are approximately 120 species of Conures List of types of Conure parrot species

What surprises even more people is a range of Conures sizes. Whereas green cheeks are about 70 g and about 11 inches long, Patwegnian conures


The adult length of a Lesser Patagonian 45cm (18in). This is the largest of the Conures and only the Queen of Bavaria’s equals its weight which is 240 – 310 g the size of a Timneh African Grey!

We also feel that conures, in general, are one of the most vocal of parrot species.
