Teller and the Sun Conure

Out to PetsMart tonight for an instant engraved tag for Kipling. Decided to do some distraction training with Teller in the bird aisle. As I was working signals I noticed that the Sun Conure had climbed out of his nest and was playing at (or with) Teller's tail. So I released Teller from his work to check out the bird - here's what came next:



And because I had to look it up:

From the above website:

Endearing, charming, playful and personality plus packaged into a vibrant bundle of feathers.
Thats a sun conure!


The sun conure possesses a multifaceted personality that will delight the experienced bird owner and pique the curiosity of the inexperienced nonbird person. They can best be described as curious, inquisitive, active and playful. They love attention and closeness from their owners.


A flock of sun conures flying across an evening sky was once said to have resembled a beautiful sunset. Hence, the name sun conure was assigned to the species. The sun conure's body color possesses a yellow-orange glow with a distinct resemblance to gold. The brilliant blend of yellow, orange, red, blue and green colors means sun conures outshine most other birds in appearance.



From the sound of it a large mega-pet store probably isn't the best place for that kind of bird. This one apparently wants to go to a home with dogs - Birdie wasn't at all interested in interacting with me!
