I've lived with Peachfront Conures Aratinga aurea for 30 years. I've bred 'em, trained 'em, even visited Bolivia to observe them in the wild. For more about me, click right here.

heat stress -- don't let it happen to your peachfronted conures
The Peachfront Conure pairs I observed in Bolivia were birds of the hot, humid low-lying areas. However, let's be clear.
