Dusky, Olive and Aztec Conures no. 400

The Aztec Conure or Jamaican Conure or Olive-throated Conure (Aratinga nana astec) is a Central American species that is endemic to the Caribbean slope from Veracruz, Mexico, along Caribbean slopes, Costa Rica, south to Almirante Bay, extreme western Panama; and Honduras.

This species is most abundant in Yucatan, Mexico, and specifically Western Yucatan where they form large, noisy flocks. The disjunct distribution range compared with the other members of the Aratinga nana family largely accounts for frequent treatment of race aztec as distinct species.
