They are crazy little birds. They are called Caiques, this one being the White Bellied, there is also the Black Headed Caique. They come from the Amazon Basin and are becoming very popular in aviculture. There are two sub species of the White Belly that are considered Endangered and Vulnerable. They are a very uncommon bird here in Australia due to importation restrictions.

They sell them here in Toronto for $1600.00 & up.... they look to be a popular bird here.

They look like they are full of personality but they would keep you on the your toes watching them and making sure they don't get into everything and anything.

They are cute. I saw a baby in the petshop & it was so much fun. There is a guy who has one & he used to bring it into the Goodwill which is a thrift shop. It would sit on his shoulder & make a hi pitch whistle. My friend at the store told me she used to hold the bird sometimes so he was pretty tame.

They are really comical but I also heard they can be handful but truly what bird isn;t?

Seems they need alot of attention or a mate.
