Sun Conure from Madison, WI
Kona

Create/Edit Your Own Avatar

I found Kona online after a long search for a sun conure breeder in our state. He is my first bird ever. I decided to get a sun conure when I saw one in a petstore after I'd already started my bird research. I fell in love with their beauty and decided I'd put up with the noise. I'd been terrified of birds my whole life after being attacked by a macaw in a store as a child, but a healing experience with a scarlet macaw in an ecological park in Mexico sparked something inside of me. I'm so glad it did, or I'd never be owned by birds..

Hi! My name is Kona

I am a Sun Conure from Madison, WI.

Meatball, Stinker

8 years old   M

Sun Conure

Nutriberries and peanut butter toast. Oh, and whatever mom and dad have at the moment. If they're eating it, it must be good.

I love my happy hut!

Hands over my head, hands that take stuff away (like food they say I shouldn't eat when I steal it from them) or some cool trinket I've found--they say its dangerous or not good for me--rrrrrrr--ha- nds drive me crazy! Scream really loud and stare them down, then they might go away...I'll try that.

She tickles my tummy and makes me laugh and always includes me in everything just like the rest of the family.

Every time I meet someone new or am feeling ignored I start spreading my wing out and stretching. Everyone says"Oooo, pretty Kona." SoI do it again, and again, and again. Mom says I'm a ham for attention. She also says I'm the biggest little glutton around. If there's human food anywhere in site, I'm cruisin' down from my perch and waddling my way penguin style across the floor, up your pant leg and shirt, down your arm, and into your dish to dive in face first (I don't always succeed in stealing anything, but I will never give up).

"Food, food, food, food!!!! ...what? What else is there?.

  Hi Kona
Thanks for stopping by. Always glad to she such a beautiful fid. You have the prettiest colors. I took a bath today and got really tired. Not to mention I really tore my cage up today. Mom came home from work and said good grief Charlie what have you been doing. HEHE She got me a new small playstand today she tried to sit me on it and I was scared of it. I refused to sit on it. I heard her say something about giving it to Pebbles or the tiels. I don't know if I like that idea. Left ya a vote friend.

  Hi
Kona you sound like a super fun fid to hang around with. Gabby is precious. I haven't decided if I like Pebbles yet or not. We went at it a couple of times cause I like to be bossy. Mom told me to behave. She shouldn't have spoiled me so bad. Hope you have a good weekend. Mom got a new camera this weekend so I bet it's going to be alot of flashing going on tomorrow HEHE. I love to take pictures. Pebbles and GiGi get scared.

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Patrick here, Yes the workers laughed. I was whistling to embarrass them. They were both men... We are glad they didn't have ropes. The air nailer is bad enough. We had a new floor put in the kitchen and dining area. It is that laminated flooring. You know the kind that is supposed to be easy to install..Wrong! hehe. We have watched Fortune dancin to Old rock classic songs. He sings "I dropped it, I dropped it" no matter what the song is...Big duffuss. He thinks he is singing along with the music. I guess he is ....in a way. Well vote for you and your flock... Jammin out to the tunes....St. Patrick and the gang....

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Cotton Ball here, Mommy has people replacing the kitchen floor today. We are amazed that two men can make more noise than we can. There were nine puppies under the kitchen floor. A stray big dog had dug under the floor and had pups there. Just stopped while they are on lunch break to see what is happening on BC. Here is a vote and will step on the vote button for the rest of the flock too. Love,.....

My mom HAS the movie Paulie and we have watched it together. Did you know it took a whole bunch of Blue-crown conures to make that movie? Each one was taught something different for his/her part. Aaawww...they should have just come to me and saved themselves all that time!! Hee-hee.

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Hi Kona, I am loud, but not all the time. I am probably louder than you, but, after I got used to my home, I don't squawk as much as I did. My neighbors can hear me...Yep they can. Happy Lord's Day! Mommy just now stopped to take a breath and help us write to our friends. Daddy is not feeling well and Mommy went to church then cooked lunch for our skin sis and her three kids. It has been a great day. We (Lonnie and Ellie) watched while Fortune actually played with the skin grandkids...They were thrilled. Patrick made a huge circle flight path through the house and has been flying laps. hehe He found the new FIDS ( Slate and Mica ) Mommy is almost hysterical... She was trying to keep us all separated. Now all she can do is pray that they are not sick or we all will be sick. Mommy said to tell you PICS OF NEW FIDS on FORTUNE'S page. BABY ZEBRA 12 day)PIC is on PATRICKS page. VOTES 4 ALL our friends. Love and Kisses, Lonnie, St. Patrick and Fortune

KNOCKING OFF THE VOTE THINGY FOR YOU......Mommy and Daddy just got home from the Bird Fair...with GREAT toys and two new fids..We hear strange sounds from the other part of the house. Mom said something about Love Birds, I think.. She was talking to Slate and Mica...and something about they cannot come into the bird room yet....we are just ready to show Mom how much love a birdie can give... Hugs. Fortune, Patrick and Lonnie

Hey, hey, hey, it's a bright, bright, bright sunshiny day. We have votes for all our friends.... No snow to watch.(frown) and cold outside (brrr). Lonnie and Ellie finally moved into the bird room with us. Yeah, I just want to stay close to my cage. Fortune is throwing his veggies and waiting for the afternoon fruit. hehe....We are all just fine. Mom is excited because they are having a bird fair in OkC this Saturday. She has never been to one and warned all of us that she has plans for the day. The skinbabies are trying to go with her...(better there than here) hehe. We can let her have a day off. Daddy will take care of us.. but no out of cage time until she comes home... Does that happen to you? Patrick, Fortune and Lonnie

Hi Kona, I really am a lucky guy. Did you know that the state of Pa. banned quakers and now are trying to ban conures, too. How can you be a threat to humans and animals....That is what they are saying...We are trying to get them to vote against the ban because it is ridiculous. V4U Love Patrick....

Hi Kona, Yes I speak Phrases and sing "Shake It Up Baby" I make sounds no really animal sounds, but I love to laugh, sneeze and say God Bless You, I put my beak under my wing and sneeze. Seems like a lot of people frown on Quakers but my Mom knows we are as talented as the big birds. It is great that we have not been banned in Oklahoma. Thanks for visiting me. V4U Love Patrick
