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.

We went on a short post-Thanksgiving road trip to visit my folks, bringing Cookie and Nyota along for the ride. My dad isn't feeling too well, and I decided that four feisty peachfronted conures might be a tad too much on top of a lovebird and a yellow-crowned Amazon, so they stayed home with the sitter. We have them all set up on the bird porch, but we're trying a half-tarp this year instead of fully screening the porch all around, so that Courtney can see out and continue to boss all the wild birds on the feeder. Heat lamps, of course. I don't know how cold it got while I was gone -- probably not freezing since the Turk's Caps still look great -- but pretty cold. Maybe around the high 30s or low 40s? Same temperature last night. I got up this morning, and the four peachfronts were kicking around, studiously ignoring their heat lamps and assuring me that it wasn't cold. For a species of the humid tropics, they sure like to hang out in some brisk weather.

The Chipping Sparrows were on the feeder but they were beneath Courtney's notice, and they had to be chased off by a male Red-winged Blackbird.
