Tango takes his job too seriously He will actually get down on the floor and chase the dogs and nip at them And you should see Socrates' now what do I do face when Tango decides to take a bath in their water dish
conures are wonderful small parrots, (they are noisy though) and when haddled and treated right from the time they are young become velcro birds. Tango is about the size of a sparrow. If I ever get a sun conure (orange/red/green very vivid colors) that one will be named Salsa.
I ADORE BIRDS. And had a Pacific Parrotlet (some people call them pocket parrots) for 4 years. I had to give him away because I developed alllergic asthma to him. I cried my head off...but he lives with a bunch of birds he loves and the woman who took him is a vet student and sends me pics all the time!
Anyway--pacific parrotlets are TINY. But have huge personalities. Their closest relative is the Amazon parrot and believe me, they have definite BIG parrot personalities in a teeny tiny body. They are unable to 'scream' like most big parrots which makes them great apartment pets...(yet, they can get shrill like a car alarm when they want attention!). But they are highly intelligent, curious and love to be cuddled and hang out on your shoulder wherever you are. I miss having birds because I love them so much.....
But I also love my chis! I can't live without animals. I hope one allergy is all I will have!!!
