is named after the legend of Lorelei, the siren who lives in the
River Rhine in Germany. Sirens are beautiful female spirits who lure
sailors to them with them sweet, melodic voices and hypnotic songs. Our
Lorelei shrieks and squeaks so shrilly your ears want to run for cover.
When Lorelei isn't excited she stops screaming long enough to steal your
heart. She's a cuddler and she loves to have her head tickled for hours.
She's very gentle and demure when she wants to be but watch out when she
gets hyper. Sometimes she can't contain herself and she lets out a
squawk that leaves your ears ringing. Lorelei was abandoned by her
previous owners and I adopted her from a local animal shelter. According
to my avian vet, Conures are commonly given up when their owners can't
take their shrieks, so a word of warning here...Conures are noisy, and
they always will be! Anyway, when I found Lorelei she was sick with an
intestinal infection from living in a dirty cage but she recovered
beautifully. During her illness I spoon fed her warm baby bird formula
every evening and now she demands it every night. What can I do? When
she opens up her wings to give me a birdie-hug I just melt and I have to
cater to my little siren's every whim. Come see
Lorelei and her friends.
