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.

sheldon doesn't like squirrels

Sheldon spoke up the other day, and I looked high and low to figure out what the problem was, and then I saw it. A squirrel on the fence peeping into the bird room. C'mon, man. Is that a fair division of labor? Courtney squawks off the orange cat, Mississippi and Swallow-Tailed Kites, and random ferals...and Sheldon chases off the squirrels?

Of course, squirrels are a regular visitor to our yard, forcing us to install the usual feeder guards -- but the squirrels still get food dropped to them on the ground by sloppy eaters like the Blue Jays and the Red-Headed Woodpeckers. I saw only one squirrel in the Bolivian pantanal, home of the Peachfronted Conure. And it was pretty lurky, back in the trees. Maybe a wild Peachfront hardly ever encounters a squirrel. But, to be honest, most of the time, my birds haughtily just ignore the squirrels. This one made the mistake of gazing down into Sheldon's territory, probably wondering about the food bowl, but awakening Sheldon's desire to protect his Ronnie.
