She was abandoned at the Petco that I was working at in August 2007, the woman could no longer care for her. It was love at first sight. She's an absolutely amazing bird :) Unfortunately, her species was not listed as a choice on here. She's a Gold-Capped Conure and she brings absolute love and joy into my life every single day.

Hi! My name is Layla

I am a Conure from Riverhead, NY.

Layla Bird, Baby Girl

18 years old   F


I love bananas and peanuts

Couch, on the top of my cage and of course, my Mommy!!! Oh, and sometimes I like to sleep with my Daddy when he naps

Crinkling plastic bags... And these crazy things that my mommy calls her dogs. I don't like them very much! All they want to do is sniff me all the time... So annoying!!!

She takes me into the shower with her every morning and I get my own bath! She gives me lots of head scratches and scratches under the wings. I love it!!! She's an awesome Mommy

I love to dance to music and bob her head up and down... Oh! And I love making soup in my water dish with my pellets... Mommy hates it but I think it's hilarious!!!
And I play a kissing game with mommy... she kisses me on the beak and then I make my little clucking sounds and back my head away and come back in for another kiss and do it all over again... I love that game!!!

If all else fails... Look cute!!!.

  Hey Layla!
Caymus here! Long time, no squawk…how have you been? It’s a nice sunshiny day here. Today mom gives me a bath with the spray bottle and then I get to wipe my face on her shirt, shake the water from my feathers onto her face, and soak up the rays while I dry off. Mom says I smell like a wet dog whenever I get a bath, and my skin-sis says I smell like a french fry. (???) Very odd humans! Leaving big hugs and a vote!

  Hi Layla!
Caymus here...thanks for stopping by to say hello. It's always good to hear from you! I love the pic with with your foot up. Sometimes I do that when I'm sitting on mommy's shoulder and she's talking to me and I grab her lips with my foot. Daddy says I'm telling mommy to "zip it." I just really like having my feet kissed...hehehe! Leaving big hugs and a vote...don't be a stranger!

Happy Earth Day, Layla! Today is the day to celebrate our plant, do something positive to make it a better place, and to pass on that message to our future generations. Mom and I want to take this time to thank you for reading my “Green Ideas.” You know what the best part was? We have realized that all the BC parronts out there are the largest group of green-minded folks around! I mean, I send out an idea and I get tons of responses back that your flock is already doing these things! Now, I know there are a lot of really good people out there with an appreciation for nature and the will power to save our plant. But for everybirdy here to all have that same ideal? My theory is that us birdies have a special influence on our humans. That when they look in our eyes, they see compassion. When they see us fly, they know our hearts. And when they feel our feathers against their skin, they know that the trust we give them comes from a spirit within us all. I’m so honored to be a part of this BC family, and so my final “green idea of the day” is to BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER…WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

It’s a quiet day today…just hanging out listening to some Jimmy Buffet (hey, I’m a Florida bird…what do you expect?) and pulling apart what little remains of the toy daddy bought for me on Sunday. Mom should be home by the time I’m finish with that, and then it’s toy rotation time! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": If every American switched to receiving just one bill as an electronic statement instead of a paper one, the one-time savings would be 217,800,000 sheets—enough to completely blanket the island of Key West in a single layer of paper. 5 more days until Earth Day!)

Hello Layla, just a quick fly-by today since daddy took a “mental health day” and mom wants me to daddy-sit him until she gets home this afternoon. We’re expecting some thunderstorms this weekend so it’s going to be kind of quiet and lazy around here. Leaving you a vote and a hug!

  ‘Twas the Night Before Easter – By Caymus & Peachy
‘Twas the night before Easter, on a warm Florida night**And Caymus was snuggled in his hut out of sight.**Peachy was snoring, the cats on the couch,**Mom and dad in the bedroom; all was quiet in the house.**And while the Conure was dreaming about hard-boiled eggs**(Which he was soon to consume and get all over his head),**In the sky flew a birdy not many have seen**He was yellow and blue and orange and green.**He had all of the colors that we’ve come to know**When we look up in the sky and see a rainbow.**Purples and pinks, some teal and blue**And gold was his tail, leaving streaks where he flew.**Now we have heard stories about bunnies and such**Who leave hidden treasures from his basket’s clutch.**There are chocolate eggs from Cadbury and jelly beans galore;**There are sugary treats, Peeps, bubble gum, and more.**But high in the sky, flying over the trees,**Above all the rooftops and smooth like the breeze,**Came a birdy so beautiful no one could deny,**Delivering delights to all his friends who can fly.**He had a gray beak, and a little round belly,**And his favorite treat was raspberry jelly!**As he landed upon one particular home**He looked down in the windows to see if any lights were on.**Now there was no movement or sound from inside this space,**So down the air vent he went (because in Florida you don’t need a fireplace).**Now Caymus the Conure was on high alert this night**And said, “Squawk, who’s there? You gave me a fright!”**“Don’t fret now, my friend…I mean you no harm.**But I’ve just flown in for the birdy nut farm.**I’ve got peanuts, pistachios and cashews, all unsalted.**Walnuts and sunflower seeds, too,” then he took a deep breath and halted.**Caymus said, “So who are you then, and why are you here?”**And the stranger responded, “haven’t I made that quite clear?**I have come to bid you happy Easter wishes**To you and your flock, even the mice and the fishes.**Thank you so much for letting me stop by,**But I’ve got to move on and to the next house I must fly.”**And like that he was gone before Caymus could blink**And that Dusky was left saying, “I just saw the Easter Birdy, I think!”**So the story now goes at this special time in the Spring,**If you turn your head late at night and think you see a wing,**If you find extra treats inside of your cage,**You’ll know the Easter Birdy is real, and could even visit your BirdChannel page!**

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Layla! I hope your having a bird-tastic day! While mommy and daddy were visiting family in Miami this past weekend, they went to Simbad’s Bird House (it’s on BIRD Road…get it?). She met three Hyacinth Macaws, a Palm Cockatoo and a beautiful and very rare Golden Conure. She really liked a cute little Rainbow Lory who would not leave her alone and would make little baby sounds whenever she would walk away from it’s cage. Heck, I even know mom’s a sucker for baby birdie sounds! Daddy was quite relieved when mommy left the store a good two hours later…he says it will be a couple years before she can bring home another bird because “the zoo is full.” But mommy and I are breaking him down, inch by inch, piece by piece…..wha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Well tomorrow is my 1st birthday and I can’t wait to see what surprises I’ll get! Mommy is even baking me a special cake that I can eat. I’m going to love it because everyone’s attention will be on ME, ME, ME! hehehe Here is a big birdie hug and vote for a great friend. Squawk at ya later!

Love has no boundaries when it comes to race, religion, age or size. And as evidence of the special bond between a bird and it’s human, it knows no boundaries between species either. Happy Valentine’s Day from our flock to yours!

  Hey, Layla!
Hey, thanks for telling Mom about the letter in Bird Talk! She had gotten busy and hadn't seen the letter until you mentioned it. I hope you had a great Christmas. Things are quiet here now, which suits us fine! I've been playing fun clicker games with Mom. I put a paper clip in her hand and get a bit of cashew! My kind of game! Bye-bye, and here's a vote for ya!

  Hello from Caymus...
Mommy and daddy are getting really busy around here, wrapping stuff up in really colorful paper with bows and ribbons on top. I love what they're doing; I'm sure it's all for me to shred and rip up! So we probably won't be signing on to the BC in the next few days and we all wanted to wish you and your flock a very Merry Christmas, and if you don't celebrate that, we're still hoping you have a very nice holiday season and send out big birdy hugs! Love, Caymus, Peachy, Mommy, Daddy, Sister and all the other critters here at the "zoo."

Need your help I'm on a Christmas crusade to get Beavis BOTW. He's a very old Quaker.He loves his mom very much and tells her all the time. He was the one friend that didn't forget her when she was laid up in the house for 5 1/2 yrs. He calls for her every morning.all in all, he's a great bird. So pass it along BEAVIS for BOTW and VOTE for him. He will be so thrilled. Thanks so much. Love,BOBA (Beavis U. *%$#@head )PLEASE HELP!!!!

  Hello from Caymus...
Hope you’re having a great start to the holiday season. We have a real tree in the house! It's great and it smells be-you-tee-full! Oh, my parronts got up really early last Friday (even before I came out of my cozy hut) and came how with lots of bags and packages. I just KNOW there are gifts in there for me! I've been mostly nice...and when I am naughty at least I'm cute. What's on your wish list? I want a Manzanita perch, a small portable stand so I can hang w/ mom when she's in the bathroom putting on her makeup and doing her hair, ummmm...always want more toys. Oh, and I'd like mom to stop trying to put that stupid flight harness on me and just let me chew on the stupid thing already! Squawk at ya later...

  Hi, Layla!
Thanks for the nice comments. Wow, you're awfully pretty too! :^D You wear a flight suit? Wow, you're a brave bird! I'd never let my mom get anything like that on me! I always come back, but sometimes I make the folks work for it, like when it's just too gorgeous out, or when it's raining and I'm DYING for a bath! Usually I can't resist when they bring out the cashew jar. But one time when I couldn't bear to leave my rainy apple tree, Mom called out that she'd give me a shower, and I flew right in! Then she gave me a nice warm shower, which beats a New Hampshire rain shower any day! Talk to you soon, and here's a vote for you! Shemesh

  We really do need our own catagory.
I think we are so special that we should definitely have our own category. My mommy just put mine under that generic conure. She wants to know how your mommy got you to eay bananas? She hasn't found many fresh fruits or veggies that I will eat. I like to throw most of food (except my pellets and anise seeds) out to my canine brother (it's such a fun game seeing if he can catch, but mommy and daddy get upset and say all the treats are not good for him). Well I should go and sleep now. Here's a vote for you
