Sun Conure from Mooresville, NC

Since I was a kid I had always wanted a bird but never actually done the research. So I decided to buy some books and movies just to look into getting a bird. First my heart was set on a cockatiel. Then I went to a local petshop and got to hold a baby conure! Oh my gosh, it was love at first sight! I couldnt get a bird at that time though because I was leaving vacation a week later. Then I found another (sun) conure that was extremely sweet. I have to say I felt a little sorry for it because it had been at this petshop for over a month because its colors were not as birght as other suns. 2 weeks later I got her.. Awards

Ellie really likes to play in old sheets and pertend she is in a cave or something. She likes to be in cuddly, dark places.

She really dosnt have to many pet peeves that I think of. But she does hate when I but on shoes so she cant bite my toes!

Everything! There is nothing not to love!

Head bobbing. The firt "trick" I taught her was to dance. Now she does it all the time, even if ther is no music on..

  Good morning Ellie.
Just wondering how you are. I wanted to check in and say hello. I left you a vote. Mama and Mike ate at Fat Boys last Sunday. When I found out, I asked her if she saw my friend Ellie down that way. She just laughed at me and said "silly bird". She said she did think about you, though, since she was in Mooresville. Come see me. Starburst

How are you Ellie! Haven't heard from you in awhile. How are you? I'm good, been trying to get in a little trouble with my mommy lately. But she has been very patient with me. She says i need to get my wings clipped so I loose the attitude. Hope to hear fron you soon!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hey there, Ellie. must be all finished with your molt by now. Do you feel better? I bet you look a little brighter, now. We suns always improve in color after each of our early molts. Mama was looking at some of my baby pictures and she couldn't believe the difference in them and the way I look now. She does scrapbooking and I have an album all to myself so there are a lot of pics of yours truly. Here's a vote for you. I'll see you later. Starburst

  Hello, Miss Ellie.
How's your weekend? Mine's been good so far. I had an ear of roasted corn that Mama brought back from a festival in Morganton, today. Boy, was it good. She got out the camera yesterday and took some pics of me.(I'm such a ham) She put a few of them on my site. I gave a vote to ya'. I'll be seeing you. Starburst

  Good morning, Ellie.
I'm glad the sneezing wasn't anything to worry about. Molting can be a pain in the butt, sometimes. It gets easier, though. And you will be even prettier. Mama has the day off and is in a cleaning mood. That means she drags cages outside and I usually get to go with her. I like hearing the birds outside and seeing them on the feeders. Here's a vote and I'll talk to you later. Starburst

  Hello, Ellie.
You've got some pretty cool tricks in your bag. That's funny that you add the spinning every time. I lift my foot about every other trick. Hey, you never know when it will get you an extra treat. Mama takes me to a vet in Wilkesboro. The one she used to use stopped seeing birds and she wasn't happy with any of the others nearby. She heard the doctors at Huntersville are really good but she hasn't been to talk to them, yet. It's 10:30 and Mama says it's past my bedtime. I left you a vote. Talk to you, later. Starburst

  Hi, Ellie.
It was great hearing from you. I'm sure you really miss your mom. It doesn't matter how nice the sitter is, it's just not the same. Mama say "Lay down" and puts her hand behind my feet and I just plop over backwards. Then she can lay me down on the bed if she wants to. I lay there until she says "okay". I do other tricks, too. When she asks me if I can dance and starts singing Yankee Doodle, I bob my head and body up and down. When I'm sitting on her finger and she says "Swing like a monkey" I drop down by one foot and swing myself back and forth. When Mama says "turn around" I turn in a circle on the perch, her finger or on a table. Mama points at my foot and tells me to lift my foot and I hold it up until she tells me to put it down. I give kisses on command, too. Of course, I get a sunflower seed whenever I do the trick. Now we are working on retrieving objects. I haven't quite gotten the hang of that, yet. As far as talking, well, that depends on who you ask. I think I talk. I look right at Mama and say things to her. SHE says she can't understand me and to keep practicing. Hopefully she'll understand me one of these days.

What tricks do you do? I think we suns are just natural born performers... or hams... or maybe both.

I gave you a vote on my way in. I look forward to hearing from you, again. Starburst

  It's Patrick, Again!!
Ellie, just a couple more things. Just, wanted to let you know that I do not have my own computer, so sorry if I don't get back to you right away. Do you go to an avian veternarian or just a regular vet? I am lucky enough to have an avian vet in my area. She is great and makes all the difference in the world! When are you going on your fun trip to Florida? Talk to you soon!

  hi there Ellie!!
How old are you, Ellie? And how long have you been with your mommy? I learn alot because my mommy talks to me like a maniac and is very animated. But, sometimes when I am sitting on her shoulder and she is talking to me I listen pretty well. Or, if I am dieing for her attention and she is in the other room I tend to listen to everything she is doing and saying. Sometimes boys tend to talk a little more than girls for some reason. I do not use tapes or videos. Conures are more difficult to get started. It helps when my mommy talks to me as much as she does, but in a not too loud voice. Do you know the step-up command, Ellie? Can't wait to hear from you soon!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hello Ellie!
That is so exciting that you are going to Florida! I hope you have a good time!! Yes, I talk, but my voice is very high and hard to understand sometimes. I say Patrick, step-up, good boy, nutri-berri, come here, hello, hi, give me kissie and Lisa (thats my mommys name). Are you saying any words? Step-up and patrick were my first words. What are your favorite treats and what kind of bird food are you eating? You should try nutri-berries! YOu would love them! I do anything if there is a nutri-berri involved. TAlk to ya soon!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hey, Ellie.
It was good hearing from you. We finally got some rain, very little, but it all helps. Maybe I'll be able to get out and about, soon, if it cools off. Mama bought some pistachios, today. Boy, are they good. She said she had a hard time finding any without salt. She has been picking up pistachio shells all afternoon. Of course, I didn't help make the was all the others. I'll put in a vote for you as I leave. Stop by and visit with me, again. Starburst

  Hi Ellie!!
I am sooo glad to hear you gained weight! I hade to go to the doctor cuz my poop was looking a little runny. The doctor put me on 3 different medicines! They think it is just a bacterial infection. I have to go back in 2 weeks to make sure that I am all better. Just a lot of patients it takes during molting. Try to get some natural sun light. If you cant get natural sunlight, some people get UV Bulbs during molting. My mommy bought me a travel cage to take me places and get some real sun. Lots of protein helps, too. You can give me hard boiled or scrambled eggs. Chicken bones and strait cooked chicken. There was a couple good recipies in I think it was Julys issue of bird talk. In think the one recipies had beans in it. Although beans are a great source of protein, you have to be careful cuz beans forment quickley. Also, I really like that V-8 fusion, but I noticed that there is a little sugar in it. So I can not have much. I am still molting, too. I can not wait until i am done!! Talk to you later and take care!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hi, there, Ellie.
I just happened to see your page and thought I'd say hello. Actually, we are neighbors. I live just up the road from you, in Newton. My mom goes to Mooresville quite often. She and her boyfriend like to eat at Fat Boy's. I do the head bobbing thing, too, when Mama asks me if I can dance and sings "Yankee Doodle". There are a few other tricks I can do on command (for a treat, of course). We sun conures are really something, huh? I'm leaving you with a vote while I'm here. Stop by and visit with me. Starburst

Hi! Yeah, 90 Grams is not very much for a sun conure. But, with the great care your getting from your mom, i'm sure that your doing much better. You probley have gained more than it looks. My mom put me on Harrisons bird food when she brought me home. It took me a long time to convert over completely. It made a huge difference in my feathers. I have several favorite toys. My mom used to give my kitty toys with a bell in the middle and I would thrash it around all over the place, it was a blast! Then, I start busting it to pieces to get the bell out of the center, so she stopped giving them to me. Talk to you soon!

  Hello Ellie!
How are you? I go to the doctor twice a year and I still weigh the same as when my mommy brought me home at 10 months old. I weigh 74 grams. It took me a long time to finally try out fruits and vegtables. But, I only like them if they are cooked. Once in awhile I get to eat some yogart and I love orange juice, too. Cambells has a new vegtable and fruit juice called Fusion that does not have any sugar in it. I really like that alot! You should try it. You could try organic baby food if it does not have any garlic in it. How much do you weigh and how old were you when you got to come home with your mommy? Are you na year old yet? I'll be 3 in March. Do you have a favorite toy?

Hi there! I am glad to hear your molting is coming along better. Are some of those feathers coming in on your head turning yellow, yet? You are so pretty! My mom used to work with a lot of sun conures at her old job. Yes, I was DNA sexed. I already had my name before they knew if I was a boy or a girl. Good thing I am a boy, huh!?!? Do you like to eat fruit and vegtables? I am finally starting to eat my vegtables pretty good now. And I love Gala apples!! See Ya!

  Hello there Ellie!!
How are you? I'm doing very good! Well, molting can be a little tender and sometimes it may want to put you in grumpy mood, but it will pass. In the wild, a birds mate will help break the pin feathers around your head. It might help a little and even feel good if your mommy gently rubs her finger around your head to help loosen those pin feathers up. The best way to let your mommy know that you want her to do that is by rubbing your head with your foot. That can be an indication that you would like her to help you when you are near. My mom talks to me like a baffling idiot all the time, thats where i pick up a lot of my words. My first words were, step up and Patrick. And I really like to run off at the beak when she is in the other room. Ellie, did your doctor do a DNA test on you? It was really nice to talk to you, again. Write back soon!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hi Ellie
I really didn't work on teaching Nikki to talk. I was just constantly asking Sonny, our conure, what he was doing, because he is always into something and Nikki just picked up on it. She is very attentive to me, so I think it was just another way to get me to focus more attention on her.

Come visit me, Maxi, Sonny & Nikki.

  Hello Ellie!!
How are you Ellie! I am a black capped conure. I am very close to a green cheek, just a little different. I'm going through my second real molt. It is worse than my first molt. My mom calls me pinhead, from "HellRaiser" ,sometimes when the molting gets the best of me. Today, my mom got to hold 2 Queen of Bavaria conures at a bird show! She was very excited! Do you say any words yet? One of my favorite words is nutriberri! I also love it when my mom rolls me over and tickles my belly. Your bathroom sink looks like the perfect place to take a bath. Talk to ya later!

Come visit me, Patrick.

  Hi Ellie
Sonny doesn't talk at all. He just screams. In fact, as I am writing this, he is downstairs screaming because he was left alone. Sonny has a sister (our cockatiel, Nikki). She wolf whistles, and can say What are you doing? and Night night birdies.

Come visit me, Maxi, Sonny & Nikki.
