Hi! I'm relatively new to conures, but I'm having a great time getting to know my green cheeks and their quirky personalities!

I acquired Sophie (a yellow-sided green-cheeked conure) about 2.5 months ago. Unfortunately, I recently found out that she has an enlarged heart, but she's getting great vet care and is on a special heart-healthy diet. She's been afraid of hands since I got her, but she gets out a lot and is starting warm up to them. Here she is on her playscape eating a Nutri-Berry. (My friend wrapped some of the bars in bird-friendly sisal rope because Sophie seems a little unsteady on the thin metal bars.)

Solstice (a pineapple green-cheeked conure) is brand new! I got him yesterday. I don't have any good photos of him yet because I'm trying to let him acclimate for the time being, but I'll try to get some in a few days, when I start letting him explore more.

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
Thanks so much for joining and sharing narrative of your conure pair! May gorgeous Sophie thrive with vet guidance and heart healthy diet. Cannot wait for pics of Solstice when cooperative!!

As someone who had a blue budgie named Solstice when I was a preteen, I’m quite partial to the name. Welcome to all of you!
