Maroon-Bellied Conure Species Profile
Traits:  Considered one of the more friendly conures, the maroon-bellied conure is also fairly even-tempered and quiet. The maroon-bellied conure is unlike other conures because of its lower noise level. Once owners get to know their maroon-bellied conure, they often find them to be playful and affectionate. In an attempt to grab the attention of their owners, these pet birds will hop and flip around happily. Maroon-bellied conures are known to have spunk and curiosity, and they usually form a bond with the entire family - not just an individual. Socializing a maroon-bellied conure early on and avoiding a dramatic reaction when the bird nips will reduce its tendency to continue a biting habit.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  These busy pet birds need plenty of entertainment and interaction. Keeping maroon-bellied conures busy with toys such as swings, spirals and noisemakers will please these high-energy birds. Enclosures, such as play huts, make good accessories because maroon bellies like to playfully hide inside, poking their head out occasionally. Keep a close eye on a Maroon-bellied Conure is important due to their high-energy, which can get them into dangerous situations. In the wild, these birds live in flocks containing several hundred birds and in captivity they do well with breeding. Feather picking and susceptibility to psittacine diseases are difficulties owners may encounter with this pet bird.
