Conures

Pin It I doubt any of you have seen a bird quite this beautiful. "Red chains" around their feet, beautiful green bodies, irredescent blue bib. Dark blue tail feathers, and juveniles ringed tails. An exotic breed escaped from captivity here are some pictures of the Nanday Conure. Enjoy!


Every day at a certain time these beautiful birds arrive at the feeder.


You can clearly see the underside of the tail as this bird "gawks" at the camera!


This curious conure is cocking its head at my dog Jip.


These birds are very curious, and great picture posers.


You can see the red chains, the blue tail feathers and the blue bib clearly in this picture.

  4. Love their black hoods. Parrots are everyday birds for me, we are overrun by them. At present we have three species with their fledgelings and a fourth will come a little later in the summer.
