|These are Sun Conures. (Aratinga solstitialis)|
Physical Description: The suns are a beautiful red/orange/yellow over most of the bird. The wings have a slight green on the wings. The younger birds are more green, and their brighter colors appear after several molts. As with all conures, the Sun has the white skin patch around the eye. Average weight of 100g-120g
Length: 12 Inches
Origin: North western Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela
Loudness: The Suns are known as loud birds. The bird has a very loud scream. And if not trained properly, the bird will be loud often. Sun owners say it is possible to train the birds to be more quiet.
These playful and entertaining birds are really beautiful and it's colours are so vibrant, just like the sun! Talking about playful, while i was taking shots of them, one of them turn it's butt to me and when i walked away, it turned back. Sheesh!
PP Notes: Crop, Colors, Framed.
