Features Black-Capped Conure Scientific Name: Pryyhura rupicola Size: 9.8 inches Native Region: estern Amazon basin from Peru to Bolivia Life Expectancy: 10 to 30 years (up to 30 years with proper care) Noise Level: Moderate Talk/Trick Ability: Good Traits: Black-capped conures are generally sweet, playful pet birds. They are quieter than many other types of conures and they can learn some phrases and tricks. Well-socialized black-capped conures make delightful pets and thoroughly enjoy being part of the family. Some owners have noted that this conure very cutely sings in its sleep. They are very active, intelligent parrots that need a lot of pet bird toys and social interaction with its owner. This bird enjoys a busy house where a lot is going on; this tends to keep them content and entertained. Behavior/Health Concerns: Black-capped conures can be clownish in their playful behavior, but generally, they are not good birds for people new to parrots because they require a lot of interaction and someone who is willing to take the time to work with them and understand their behavior. They love to be handled, which helps to get them socialized to the entire family; however, they can nip and therefore are best kept with a more experienced pet bird owner who can redirect such behavior. Because of their very strong chewing ability, they need to be housed in sturdy pet bird cages. These birds like having a sleeping tent or hidey hut in which to retire in when they feel tired or shy.
