The Dusky Pionus . . . Where are they? We did have 3 breeding
pairs but are now down to one pair that is still not paired together. Now I see why the Dusky Pionus is still rare. I have not had good luck with the Dusky breeders. This Pionus Specie
is harder to find in aviculture and is bred by fewer breeders, but
eventually they will easier to find as time goes on. The
Dusky's coloration can vary from one to another I've noticed.
They are about the same size as the White Cap. There are numerous people that do keep them as pets. Dusky
owners seem to love their personality. They can talk some
about the same as the other Pionus species.
If you own a Dusky Pionus and would like to share some information
for this page about the personality and how they do over all, that
would be great and you can email us through the Feedback Form
