A Black Capped Conure bird is standing on the space bar of a keyboard looking down at it.

"Cleopatra, the Black-capped Conure—I just can't say enough of about the Black-capped conure. They are playful, comedic and extremely bright! Cleopatra will fetch a Wiffle ball and loves lying on her back and throwing it up in the air to catch. She says hello and gives kisses. At night she wraps herself up in her little blanket and sleeps on the floor of her cage. That being said, these are not birds for the inexperienced. Black caps go through a nippy and aggressive stage of testing their limits and if not ruled firmly and consistently they can become very aggressive. I recommend spending time with some before deciding if they are the right bird for you! They need lots of attention! Do not let their small size fool you!"

"Sam the Orange-winged Amazon—Sam is a 41-year-old wild-caught Amazon. She was handfed and lived with the same owners until they passed away. She is gentle and friendly but does not have much of a vocabulary. However she mimics the smoke detector, Canada goose and Tetris video game perfectly. She can also eat with a spoon!"

Close up side view - A Red Lored Amazon is standing on a stick in a cage and it is looking forward.

"Maggie the Red Lored Amazon—a wild-caught special-needs Amazon that we adopted. He was very mistrusting at first but with time came around. He is bonded most to me but very gentle and patient with the children. He has a moderate vocabulary that includes ’I love you’ and ’Thank you.’"

Black-capped caique named Stubby— "He’s a sweetheart. He says his name and he can say ’step up’; he also yells ouch when he chews my finger just a little, then he laughs. He tries to bite the cats’ tails when they walk by the cage. Very funny little bird. Oh yeah, he also wolf whistles and blows me kisses."
