The chirps, tweets and an occasional screech are all toned down and not too annoying. Calls made in flight are high-pitched, chattering notes.
Like other conures, these Blue Throated Conures really enjoy bathing. Conures can’t get enough of it. So offer them regular baths in the bathroom sink or a larger bathing dish. It simulates the humid conditions of their natural habitat and prevents any feather related diseases.
Not too noisy, these conures are playful with a silly personality and an affectionate side as well.
