    "Parrot" is just a generic term for all hookbills. "conure"
    denotes an entire genus of birds from various species and sub
    species. A caique is not a conure.. it is a cauque. They have
    only 2 recognized species, the black head and the white belly (
    or peach theigh). They are a completely different type of bird
    and if one must generalize them they would be considered
    a "parrot". I hope that helps.
