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.

when peachfronts purr

As our little joke, we call it the Peachfront Conure "snore." It's night, they're snug in their nestbox or under their cage cover, and you make a comment, and they respond with a sleepy-sounding "snore."

"You're not really asleep," I'll say. "I can tell."

They will "snore" a little louder. Hint, hint. Tone it down so a little bird can get some zzzzzz's around here.

However, even though we call it a "snore," it's really more of a purr. I think of it as a sort of quiet "contact call," but it isn't a bit loud or obnoxious like so many parrot "contact calls." It's just a nice, pleasant way to let us know that, hey, "peachfronts are here. And sometimes we get a little sleepy."
