Screaming Sun Conure

(Ontario Canada)

I just adopted a 4-year old feamle Sun Conure. I named her Xochiquetzal!! She's wonderful and friendly, let my whole family interact with her and is out whenever we are home. She does however, scream alot!!!! I've read that some people have success in limiting the screaming. I know it is a common characteristic of theirs so I know she will scream sometimes. I'd just like advice on lessening it if anyone has some!!

Screaming Sun Conure problem
by: Tracie

Congratulations on your new Sun Conure! Yes, they can be very loud at times, but you can help them to not be loud all the time.

We have some articles on our Parrot Training page you might want to read. Also, we have stories written by other Sun Conure owners that might encourage you. They are at the bottom of the Conure page.

Screaming Sun Conure
by: Anonymous

I have a male white-eyed conure (Gabriel) who screams too and it is because he wants your attention and he wants it NOW! It really is amazing how smart these birds are! Gabriel gets jealous of our 2 dogs getting attention and vice versa. I find that if I can't stop by give him direct one-on-one attention when he starts screaming, I sing to him. And even better, I will always put his name into the song. Now maybe it is just my Gabriel but I'm here to tell you it works and Gabriel loves to join in on the singing (in his own way of course).
