The conure is the kind of an extrovert that gets more energy the more attention they get. They like spacious living conditions to flit about in, and get along great with children, provided the children have been shown how to treat birds with respect.

Conures love warm cuddles and playtime – and aren’t afraid of making a lot of noise to get it, if they haven’t been trained not to. They are not necessarily the most talkative birds, but can remember a few phrases and love learning acrobatic tricks.

Of course, all this makes the conure one of the louder birds. When raising a conure, this will have both ups and downs – it’s good to have a bird that will tell you, in no uncertain terms, that it’s unhappy. On the other hand, you can accidentally train your conure to make noise just to get attention! They’re crafty like that.
