Re: Funny conure stories

Last Thursday morning I had an early morning appt for PT eval. I got up quite early, rushed thru a morning birdies-routine, filled my Sunny’s cage with extra green beans & treats, and left for the day. I work second-shift. Hours later I arrived home at my usual late hour, nervously expecting to find Her Sunny Self replaced by Miss AngryBird. I was quite relieved when a couple hours extra midnight-playtime was all she required for forgiveness.

Next morning, Friday, I was understandably tired.

Every night I go to bed in my own room. Then around dawn-ish I go to the living room, uncover the fronts of the birdies’ cages, and go back to sleep. They keep sleeping as long as I do. (Or at least, they pretend to.) After a few snooze alarms, Sunny usually starts making owlish little “hoo” noises to check whether I’m awake. Normally she waits until my eyes have focused in her direction & I’ve given evidence of upright-ward motion before she begins ringing her bells & such.

But last Friday I was really tired. Sunny waited at least an hour later than usual before getting fed up. Or rather, not-fed up. (She’s developing a serious green-bean addiction.) She commenced to bounce around & ring all her bells until my bleary eyes focused in her direction. Once she knew I could see her, she jumped to the bottom of her cage & stared up at the door. (This is her unequivocal request to come out of her cage.)

Well, I figured I could achieve just enough awakeness to have her out safely. I put the chair in the half-upright position, and she settled herself on my shoulder. I thought she was gonna style my hair (& ear) in her usual fashion, but she only spent a few moments on that. Then she sat quietly & let me drowse a while longer.

But at some point, she decided she had had enough. I noticed her moving around to my other shoulder, and started to wonder what she was doing.

It almost felt like… no wait… REALLY?? No! Yes, you REALLY ARE. You little itty bitty parrot. Sitting on my shoulder, throwing ALL your tiny WEIGHT against my ear. Standing on my shoulder, TRYING TO PUSH ME OUT OF THE CHAIR. !!! Yes, she really was.

And yes, of course it worked. How could it not? I mean, you try resisting a little tiny parrot who is so determined to get you to get her some green beans, that she is going to Stand ON YOUR SHOULDER to try to PUSH you to the kitchen!!!

…the little green bean fiend…

Re: Funny conure stories

We have a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure that we have had almost a month. He does the funniest thing. When we put him in his cage for the night before we cover him, he turns around backwards on the bars of his cage, like turning himself inside out. It looks so goofy, but he does it frequently. Anyone else's bird do this type of stunt?

Re: Funny conure stories

I have a green cheek conure named Venn. See, he only likes me. One day my sister went to sit next to me on the couch, and Venn took off and started flying before landing on my sister's head. He then proceeded to try and attack her while I was getting him off of her. I was trying to hold my laughter, but my sister could tell and got mad at me! xD That was a funny experience with my conure!

Re: Funny conure stories

My Pineapple is a little over two years old. He says a few words/phrases and loves talking to the birds outside.
I live in a townhouse and unfortunately Buddy can get a little loud in the early morning. So not wanting to disturb the neighbors, I give him three warnings of “Quiet!”.
After the third loud squawk I am forced to cover him and leave the room. As I walk away you can clearly hear Buddy say, “Damn it, damn it!”

Re: Funny conure stories

I wanted to share s funny little thing my Green Cheek Conure Tadah just did.
I’m hanging out here on the forum, the birds are hanging out on me taking their afternoon nap. Penny on my left shoulder, Pikachu on my chest and Ta-dah on my left shoulder.

Pikachu is talking with his eyes closed, he just started saying a bunch of things this month. He is saying the words way to fast and not clear. So I’m saying good boy to each word and saying them slower....

When from my left shoulder I hear Ta-dah say clear and perfect “ Good Boy”! This is the first time she has said that! So I look up st her and she does the conure attitude head tilt that look like a raised eyebrows ... such GCC attitude.. like what’s the big deal? Totally showing off that she can learn new words. Ta-dah has that typically raspy unclear conure speech. She feels like she knows lots of words, but mostly I’m the only one who can understand what she says.

It was just such a GCC moment.
She has lots of conversations with me that are so serious but mostly garbled words and sounds, and she pauses for my participation and comments. If I’ve failed to grasp the conversation topic her feelings are beyond hurt

Re: Funny conure stories

My husband was walking around the house with bird and passed our bathroom where I was brushing my teeth. Upon seeing me he decided to switch people but he has clipped wings and it was a 4 foot leap. He made the distance but missed his target and ended up in the toilet that I had unfortunately forgotten to flush. I snatched him up as fast as I could and he got a good shower.
