PEACH-FRONTED CONURENow: Eupsittula aurea Was: Aratinga aurea
» Also called Peach-fronted parakeet» Range is southern Surinam and Brazil to northwestern Argentina.» A smaller conure at about 10”» Can be confused with the Half-moon conure but the Peach-front has a black beak.» Considered to be stable within its range.» As with the Half moon conure, these little conures don't seem as common as companions as they once were.
With physical experiences limited to one or two hand-feds, it is difficult for me to do this conure justice. The ones I have known have been fun-loving and affectionate. I bird sat for a Peach-fronted Conure that slept with his head inside his favorite bell rather than tucked into his back feathers. Another one of the birds I met loved to hang out in his caregiver’s shirt sleeve and do upside down headstands and somersaults. As with many conures, this bird clearly thought of his human friend as a playgym. Talking ability is good for a conure and their voice is generally not as shrill as some other conures
