Senegal vs. conure

What's the difference between the two birds besides color? as they seem to compare quite similarily in price.

Re: Senegal vs. conure

I own both a conure and a senegal. They differ in size, noise level, and personality.

Re: Senegal vs. conure

According to all the reading I have done, the Senegal is quieter than the conure. Forum members may have other opinions.

Re: Senegal vs. conure

Really depends on what species of conure you are talking about. Most conures will be notably louder than a senegal, but some quiter.

Conures are such a diverse group it really isn't all that meaningful to try to do such a comparison. Is there a particular conure species you had in mind?

Re: Senegal vs. conure

Hey - I'm interested in this thread as I am narrowing my choices to a mid sized parrot down myself. My short list is Green cheek conure, Pionus and Senegal. Anyone can chime in with their thoughts on comparisons between them. I am drawn to their size, their moderate temperament (at least from what I'm reading) and their noise levels (or lack of). Thanks in advance for your input!

Re: Senegal vs. conure


If you are considering a poicephallus parrot, you might consider the Jardine. I have a Jardine and he's wonderful and very social. From what I've read the Jardine has a more mello temperment than some of their cousins. I've been with little Ollie since he was a little chick at the breeder--he's a wonderful mid sized bird. So far Ollie isn't a cuddly bird, but that might change as he gets older. He's only 5 months old right now and is what I consider to be a parrot toddler.

We also have a Green Cheeked Conure. Her name is Connie. Her personality is definately different than Ollie's. She is considered to be one of the quiet conures, but she can really go on a jag sometimes and is much more vocal than Ollie. She is also more affectionate and loves to be held and have her neck and head scratched. She is also a little acrobat and hangs upside down in her cage. Green Cheeks can be a little nippy though--Ollie is less nippy. The only thing I worry about Connie is that she is very small and frail. She likes to crawl under things. I have to keep a close eye on her when she is out the cage to make sure she doesn't put herself in harms way.

Ollie, on the other side, is hard to miss--he larger and a stocker parrot. Though I love Connie dearly, if I had it to do over again I think I would select a mid-sized conure, like a Gold Capped or Moon Conure. Connie can't play with Ollie as she is so small and he's got a huge beak. One time he lunged at her while I was standing at her cage with him on my arm. I can't let the two out on the same play stand--if I could it would be easier--but even if we had a bigger conure there would be no guarantee that the two birds would be pals.

Re: Senegal vs. conure

Thanks for the valuable input on your jardine vs. your green cheek! See? A Jardine wasn't even on my radar because I hadn't heard much about them. I do like the stockier builds (they just look sturdier). Years ago I had a blue crown conure and they can make some noise. Perhaps I will head over and research the other pois. Thanks again.

These forums are better than any bird book . . .

Re: Senegal vs. conure

Most noticeable difference is likely to be noise. I don't know much about senegals, but my conure I've had since he was a baby is super cuddly. I can hold him upside down like a baby and rub his tummy. He loves head scratches and will stand there and let me work on his pin feathers for hours. He's a very hands on bird. All I have to say is wing and he will present his wing and such.BTW all though he is cuddly he is only like this with me and will tolerate just 1 or 2 more people. Super smart but Super LOUD. LOUD enough to make you want to pull your hair out sometimes.

Re: Senegal vs. conure

My Jardine makes very melodic whistling calls that sound like "Wee, wee, wee, wee." Unfortunately it now seems that he's imitating the conure and has been letting out some high pitched whistles. Even so, his volume level is not as high as the little green cheek.
