Welcome to the Best Free Peachfronted Conure Information on the Planet

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.

watch out!

When I was in Bolivia, all of the Peachfront Conures that I observed were pairs going two by two. Therefore, I had no opportunity to observe how they behaved in a flock, although I did see most other conures in flocks. In the wild, some (maybe most or all?) flocking conures may have a bird or a pair that is obviously sitting out to keep watch on a bare branch while the others feed.

At my house, on my bird porch, Courtney is the self-appointed sentinel. He will hang upside-down, by the hour, to maximize the amount of sky he can see from the covered porch. He speaks up about cats, snakes, and hawks. Blue Jays merit nothing but his scorn. He also speaks up if I leave a door open, even for a minute, unless I take care to say, "I'm coming right back!" If he was a human, he would be the nosy neighbor involved in everybody's business. He'd probably be the one who organized the Neighborhood Watch.
