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

I have a Blue crowned conure that LOVES bells!!! She loves to put the bells on her head. It’s hysterical. She also will her her wings around ANYThING, including her perch. I don’t know how it can be comfortable, but she loves it. Go figure!

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?
