Sunshine admiring himself in the window, and I have to admit he is beautiful. He has been hand raised and is part of our family.
They are considered by many to be the most beautiful of the commonly available conures, the sun conure has enjoyed an elevated popularity status in the world of companion birds for many years
- and with good reason. Their multi-faceted personalities will delight even the most experienced of bird lovers, and their breath-taking coloring will attract the attention and pique the curiosity of any non-bird person! If there’s one conure that people will recognize on sight once they’ve seen one, it would be the beautiful sun!
The Sun Parakeet occurs only in a relatively small region of north-eastern South America: the north Brazilian state of Roraima, southern Guyana, extreme southern Suriname, and southern French Guiana.
