The Painted Conure is from forests in northern South America and Panama.
These birds are extremely playful, goofy, chatty and intelligent. They can make great pets.
What do you expect from your Conure? When you bring one home, you expect him to be friendly, be a clown, be intelligent, sociable, and give you unconditional love and companionship. This is what you want and this is what you can have. You need to treat your Conure the same when you first get him as you would a year from now. They are highly intelligent creatures who can give you much pleasure and fun, but at the same time can be quite loud and cause you frustration if not discipline properly. They will love you tremendously. Any family members, neighbors, and even strangers will be able to come over and pick up the bird. But only if you expose him to others any chance you get. They love interaction. You will want the whole family to be able to hold and play with the bird. They bond very strongly to their owner. Socialize them as possible.
