Conures, small to medium sized members of the parrot type bird family, are sometimes referred to as “parakeets”, but lots of people who have them, just call them “parrots”. Birdy is a Sun Conure, one of the more popular conure species, and is a young adult at about 13 years of age. As an adult, he is calmer than a less mature bird, but he is, by no means, “old”. Actually he’s just coming into his adult prime!
Birdy likes showers, eating a wide variety of foods (sometimes at the same time), cuddling, and hanging out with his adult family and friends. Sweet as he is, he would prefer not to share his new home with young children.
