Here, we report the coding-complete genome sequence of an avian metapneumovirus from a monk parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus), identified by metagenomic next-generation sequencing during an investigation into a disease outbreak in a captive parrot breeding facility. Based on divergence from known strains, this sequence represents a new subgroup of avian metapneumovirus.
