Dizzy is 9 months old and a Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure. I got her in early November 2009. It was an impulse purchase. She likes to steal scabs, eat sunflower seeds, play peek-a-boo, bite, dance, chatter to herself, and coo at the finches in their aviary. Dizzy also likes to watch TV and yell back at the birds on any animal show. She's still a young girl so I can't blame her too much. We are working with her on the biting.
In this picture, she was kissing my husband and mugging for the camera. At night, she runs through the record of things she can say, including, "Yep!", "Step up", and "Pretty bird". When I get home from work, she "kisses" me; she taps her beak against my lips or cheek and makes a kiss noise.

Awwww, she's so sweet! I have a maroon-bellied Conure, and I dearly treasure that bird. Conures are a wonderful choice for a first bird, they are so out-going and friendly; they make great pets. It's awesome how smart birds are, and how they so quickly become members of the family.
Just don't do what I did, and decide that one bird is so much fun, that you should get another; I wound up with three Cockatoos, one African Grey, one Masked Indian-Ringneck, and my little Connor, the Conure. I feel spread a bit too thin sometimes, trying to give them all quality time with "Mom", LOL. Blessings to you, and your little feathered friend. :)
