Seldom Seen #4

They started out as possible "pets" for our sisters in the infirmary. They are extremely beautiful and cute...but, as you'll read in the description below, they didn't last too long. They did learn to talk a little. From what I heard they could say "Be quiet" quite clearly!

Our three conures, now hidden away so as not to disturb. I visit them once in a while--they are really cute--and loud!

From birdchannel.com
"Playful, fun-loving, bold and inquisitive are all traits that describe a conure, but one word is true for them all: loud! Native to South America, conures come in all shapes and sizes, and depending on the conure, they range from an average of 9 to 21 inches long and have a life span of 20 to 30 years. They are highly attractive birds that come in a multitude of colors, with a spunky, outgoing personality to match. Conures can be taught to perform tricks and are known for talking, but they often express themselves vocally with high-pitched screeches and other calls...Conures make an excellent pet, if you’re ready to deal with the noise level!"

And here's an extra just for fun. I think you will be as amazed as I was--click here.
