||One year old|
is Horacio The Green Conure. He actually chose me at the pet shop.
He perched on my hand and gave me kisses. He loves to snuggle, I've
never seen such an affectionate animal. He's not territorial at all.
He loves nacho chips and margarine. I have to hide it from him, because he
can detect any kind of margarine from afar and begs for it, trying to
get a chunk of fat (cooing happily if he succeeds).
Horacio hates lipstick and bird toys, he will fight them like crazy or
scream like a trumpet from fear, so we try to keep them away from him.
He loves to jump upside down and do flips in my collar (and thinks it is
even more fun if I try to touch his belly), and also he likes to slide
in my t-shirt like a worm. Watching us doing the dishes fascinates him.
He has never understood the meaning of ''Ssssshhh!'' (be quiet) so when
I come back home, he welcomes me with a ''Ssssshhh!''
Dancing is also one of his favorite, especially when my boyfriend is
''beatboxing,'' but it is impossible to catch on camera, he freezes
every time I try to make a movie of it. He does not speak much, but loves
to play. Birds are surprising animals. We love our little buddy.
