Hello Jade~
Are you having a fun day? It's been fun here so far. I've had a lovely piece of croissant and some apple too! The croissant is a special treat that I love but don't get very often. I'm busy with some foam blocks right now. They are much easier to chew up than wood and I have a lovely pile of colored foam at the bottom of my cage!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's full of summer fun!

Here it today's Parakeet Blog

Today I am featuring Green-Cheeked Conures. I was as surprised as any bird when I found out that Conures are considered Parakeets. The only native Parakeet to the United States, the Carolina Parakeet was considered to be a Conure!

The Green-Cheeked Conures comes from South and Central America. There are flocks in Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay. They live in the forest there and like to perch high up in the trees. This keeps them safe from predators. The eat seeds, fruits and vegetation. Like all breeds of Conures, you need a DNA test to tell the boys from the girls! Many of the wild flocks have adapted well to living in urban areas.

The Green-Cheeked are known for big personalities and for being vey affectionate. They are very intelligent and loved to play and splash in the water. They are also the least noisy of the Conures. I'm sure anyone who lives with a Green-Cheeked Conure is probably laughing right now but it's true!!!

There are four types of mutations. The Pineapple, the Turquoise, the Cinnamon and the Yellow-sided. You can see their pictures in my gallery along with some of my dear Green-Cheeked friends.

The Green-Cheeked Conures have been put on CITES II list. They are bred all over the US but the birds in the wild are still subject to illegal trade and some of their habitat has been destroyed also. They are not endangered yet but when they get put on the CITES II list it makes it easier for measures to be taken so that they never make it on the endangered list.

Thank you so much for your time and indulging this little green zon in her love of her fellow birds!
