Hmmm....Should I Go Android Or Apple? - Sun Conure NZ by 


Sunshine our Sun Conure enjoying a little quiet time on my lap, it is not often he sits still, so I grabbed the camera which is always handy…Sunshine was hand raised and very much a huge part of our family and a real character.
The Sun Conure bird is a small, beautiful parrot similar to the macaw in features yet very distinguishable in its own. Their bodies’ hold a yellow to orange hue resembling a deep bright gold overlayed with brilliant blends of green and red which definitely outshine most birds in the sky. A baby sun conure’s feathers are mostly olive green, but at around six months of age, its plumage will slowly begin to change in coloration to the gorgeous yellow orange hues that sun conures are known for. After about a year old, the sun conure will possess its full color. This includes their wings and tails which range from dark blue to green. Their eyes are gray and their beaks and feet are always black. Sun Conure Lifespan. Sun conure birds are more or less 12 inches in length. The average lifespan of a sun conure is about 15 to 25 years which makes them great loyal pet birds for a long time. They are easy to raise and maintain plus they will bring hours of joy to you and your family because of their cuddly, lovable and charming personalities. The origins of a sun conure bird start in the Amazon River from the eastern parts of South America. Typical environments for these vibrantly colored birds, also known as the Aratinga Solstitialis, are the open forests of the Northern Amazon, Northeastern Brazil and Southeast Venezuela.

I Love Sunshine!!! – Conures Preening

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    What a beautiful bird!!! Did you buy him as a baby? His colours are breath-taking:) The Adelaide Zoo has just acquired a couple – I saw them ‘behind the scenes’ when I did Keeper for a Day a few months ago. Haven’t seen them out yet though. They are superb – as beautiful as macaws I think.
    He sounds like a delightful character – lucky you!!!

  • Many thanks for your lovely kind comment, so very much appreciated Denzil. Yes we got him as soon as he was able to feed himself, that was nearly two years ago. He is very entertaining, intelligent and full of fun. They truly have magnificent plumage.
