Sun Conure picking nose and sneezing
I purchased a sun conure on Saturday, and he’s settling in pretty well. The pet store didn’t offer a health certificate, but they did offer a guarantee. He (she?) is pretty active and seems to be healthy, so I think it all worked out OK. He hasn’t stayed fluffed out, but does so when I rub his neck and other preferred spots, so hopefully it is a sign of contentment.
The only thing he does now that seems a little odd is that he will stick his toenail into his nose hole – looks like he’s scratching it inside – then does a little sound that sounds like a mini-sneeze when he’s done, but I don’t see anything obviously wrong like a runny nose to go along with it. He’ll also move his head against my finger really fast when my finger is up against the nose area, like he’s scratching it with my finger. I’m hoping all of this is “normal!”
