The sun conure is one of the more popular conures of its size due to its stunning plumage, its extraordinary disposition, and its exceptional quality as a companion bird. Sun conures are lively, vocal, and expressive friends that, with proper attention, brings a lot of joy and laughs to their owner’s lives.
Personality & Behavior
These birds are playful clowns, lying on their backs or dangling from a rope toy – they are forever amusing. They are wonderful climbers and even love to hang upside down from perches and cage ceilings to get their owners attention. They can be very loving and affectionate and even cuddly to people they trust. They are also easily trained and enjoy the attention. This is a good family bird and will not “turn” on family members if they are kind and attentive to the bird.
Sun Conures are vocal and expressive birds. They have their ranges of calls and yells; it’s how they say hi to each other and how they announce that they’re happy. So in the morning and the evening, your sun conure will say “I’m here! I’m here! I’m here!”. They’ll yell when you come home to say hi, and when they want some attention, too.
They are capable of learning to talk, although their range is limited and their voices are squeaky and birdlike. They like to imitate amusing sounds (microwave beeps, etc.). They really enjoy human attention, especially if there is no other bird around for them to groom and play with.
