The obvious is the redder tail, but I can tell by the body style and slightly different in the size of the beak, slightly different head shape, and the eyes too. The green color is also a bit darker. After living with one for a while I just see these little different details in comparison of the 2 conures( GCC and Maroon Belllied)

Tippa,
Thanks so much for the posts. I was especially happy to see the comparisons of the tails.

Daisy,
I didn't even notice the head color until you pointed it out. The maroon belly has a greenish/yellowish/brownish head. Quite different from the green cheeks.

Tippa,
That last photograph REALLY showed some differences.
I don't know what my problem was. I have both a green cheek and a senegal myself. However, I was expecting pictures of conures, and for a few seconds I was asking myself, "Which is that, his marron belly or his normal green cheek? Wonder how is lost its tail feathers?"


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!
