The Burrowing Parakeet (Cyanoliseus patagonus) also known as the Patagonian Conure is a species of parrot in the Psittacidae family. It is monotypic within the genus Cyanoliseus. It is mainly found in Argentina. A very much reduced population still survives in Chile, and migration of some Argentine populations to Uruguay has been reported for the winter months. Sometimes strong westerly winds bring some individuals as far as the Falkland Islands.
Its natural habitats is the arid bush steppe community known as Monte.
The Burrowing Parakeet has a monogamous mating system with very strong bi-parental care. Genetic testing has recently shown that this species is one of a few animals that is genetically monogamous in a socially monogamous mating system. Also, nest parasitism is not known to occur in this species.
