Characteristics: These feisty little birds are full of fun, sweet natured, friendly, and just love attention. They are highly social and do well in communal aviaries. By conure standards, they are relatively quiet, and give a shrill whistle or natter away rather than screech, making them more suitable for those with sensitive hearing and for apartment dwellers.
