This Is Normal
by: Tony

Here is the only video (so far) of our sun conure Yoko, she is about 9 weeks old in the video. It's pretty dark, but you can see Yoko bobbing her head. This is very normal for baby Sun's (probably other conures too) and it's just how they are. They do it when they are happy or content, it's sorta like a kitten purring.

Baby bird question
by: Tracie

Hello Monica,

I don't know why your bird does this. If you are concerned that it is not normal, then either call your breeder or take the bird to an avian vet.

This could be normal for a baby, but since we don't know how old the bird is and we can't see the bird it is hard to help.
