Kind: Jenday Conure

   Say hello to Constantine, Con for short! I met this cute bundle of feathers while working at a pet shop and she stole my heart. I quickly became her favorite person and by a stroke of luck was able to bring her home. The first week of our living together was frightening and exhilarating at the same time as I was now learning first hand about her upkeep than reading about it from a book. I made some mistakes but she forgave me and we grew close. We've been together for three months now and our bond grows stronger each day. She's made me so bird crazy I plan on building a huge aviary and expanding my flock just so that I can surround myself with these amazing little feathered people. It still surprises me that this passion started because one little bird thought I'd make a good pet and made me take her home.

    Con's very independent but she loves her mama and loves to ride around on my shoulder wherever I go. She enjoys riding in the car, chewing on my ear and finding ways to steal food from me. If she wants something I'm holding she spins in a circle often to the point of falling off whatever she's standing on. Con likes to climb in her Happy Hut then growl at me until I go over and slowly lift my hand then reach in and grab her while giving her a gentle shake to set the Hut swinging. This is our nightly ritual before bed. She loves to cuddle with me at night in her fleece blanket while I give her neck rubs and has a weird fetish for sticking her beak into my ear. Con has a very resilient personality. She seems to enjoy change and adapts pretty fast to anything that she's introduced to. She's friendly with anyone she meets and had never bit anyone. She's great little bird with a mind of her own and she isn't afraid to let you know it.
