I work at a pet store and from interacting with different birds decided I wanted a conure but I didn't know which kind. So after a lot of research I decided I wanted a dusky because they are the quieter of the aratinga group. I had found a couple differnet duskies but it just didn't seem like the right one and then I found Otis at a bird specific pet store and just fell in love..

Hi! My name is Otis

I am a Dusky-Headed Conure from Vancouver, WA.

Otie Bird, Floaty Bird, Floatation Device

7 years old   M

Dusky-Headed Conure

Popcorn, apples, dried papapya, hot just veggies, and corn.

Snugglying under the covers, sitting on the collar of my shirt, anywhere I am, and the play area on top of his cage.

A clean cage, my dog Monkey, and not getting to eat everything my mom eats.

I love that no matter the cost I get what I need and that she loves me unconditionally- , even when I have to yell a little.

He loves to first dip everything he eats in his bowl and when he walks he likes to stop and stare at his feet because he's realizing that he can control them and they are a part of him. (We are trying to work on high fives).

There is no decibel level on love..

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 Otis, 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! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": visit www.nwf.org/backyard.com to learn how to certify your yard as a “Backyard Wildlife Habitat...17 more days until Earth Day!)

  ‘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!**

  Hey Otis!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m wearing my green…are you? (hehehe) Mommy’s been sick but is finally feeling better. She still sounds weird and she um, looks a little, um, how shall I say…tired? But she has more energy than I saw all last week. She promised me today I would be able talk to all my birdy friends again so here I am…here to entertain! Q: Why should you never iron a 4-Leaf Clover? A: Because you don’t want to press your luck! (hahaha) Well I hope you have a very lucky day and I’ll fly by again real soon. Big “Patty Day” hugs from your pal Caymus!

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Otis! 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!

  Hello from Caymus
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!

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Fortune here, Mommy made it home from church and the little skin niece is with her. Slate and Mica moved into the bird room wirh us this morning. They moved into a larger cage. Yes, they promptly escaped while Mom and Dad were gone. They wouldn't get out of the room and just ran around climbing on everybirdies cage to visit. It was great fun, until Mom put them up. hehe We want to drop off a vote for you and wish you a lovely day. Your friends, St. Patrick, Slate, Mica, Lonnie, Cotton Ball and Fortune........ (we will go hit the votey thing for your flockmates if you have any before we go visit other friends.

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Otis, and welcome to the birdchannel! From one Dusky Conure to another, I must say you are a very handsome fellow. Mom laughted out loud about how you stare at your feet. Sometimes she catched me doing that too and up until now, thought maybe I was looking at my shadow. But it could be my feet. I'm not tellin'! Well here is a vote and a big birdy hug. Fly by and visit some time!
