Tiki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tiki
Age: Twelve weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Center Line, Michigan, USA
 
   Tiki - his real name is Tequila Sunrise - is very cuddly and likes to sit on a person's shoulder to be pet. He makes several different bird noises depending on his mood (especially when he wants attention). He loves water. This photo was taken after he splashed around in a bowl of water.

    Tiki is playful and active part of the time and lovey and snuggly the other part. Hard to think of a bird being snuggly, but he is. He likes to snuggle into our neck and nuzzle into our necks and nuzzle into our hair while making peeping sounds. He gets lonely if left alone too long and is always excited to see us. He likes to chew on his toys and untie knots. He is very tame and allows us to flip him over so that he is on his back with his feet in the air. He likes water and will play in a pan or bowl of warm water or goes into the shower with one of us. He does not mind getting drenched. He puts his wings out so that he gets sprayed under them. Tiki is a baby now, but full grown. The only significant change as he gets older is that he will become more yellow and less green. He has the potential to live to be 40 years old, and we look forward to all the years ahead.
