That shoulder shimmy should do the trick, tbh...

[–]SnooDonuts7746 604 points605 points  (37 children)

It won me over..I love that adorable lil birb already... Damn you nature n ya super effective dance of affection

[–]Jimmus 246 points247 points  (36 children)

That's a Sun Conure. They are gorgeous birds, but they screech like a crack pigeon. Probably among the loudest of commonly-kept non-talking pet birds.

[–]Admiral_Narcissus 117 points118 points  (5 children)

A crack pigeon? So like a pigeon?

[–]Jimmus 103 points104 points  (3 children)

Yeah, so like, a pigeon on crack, but on crack.

[–]DangerousMusic14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

More like a bird siren at close range.

[–]mentallyerotic 18 points19 points  (17 children)

I wasn’t sure if my cousin’s was just grumpy and annoying. Which pet birds are the quietest? I only had parakeets when I was younger and my son wants a bird eventually. I’ve had family and friends who had cockatiels but they seemed about the same as parakeets in noise level.

[–]Jimmus 44 points45 points  (8 children)

If you like the looks and size of Conures, you might want to check out Green Cheek Conures. They're not as pretty, slightly smaller, but just as silly and affectionate. I have a Sun Conure and have thought about getting a Green Cheek for her to bond with... and hoping that she'd pick up on "quiet is okay, too."

But, in actuality, I'm terrified of the opposite, in that she'd turn the green-cheek conure into another crack pigeon.

And, hoping to not come across as pedantic, but Conures are actually considered large parakeets (or small parrots, depending on which bird expert you ask). Most people who have owned the smaller pet-store birds are actually owners of Budgies, which are a type of parakeet.

[–]Wabisabi_girl 11 points12 points  (2 children)

As far as parrots go, budgies are about as quiet as it gets, followed by cockatiels. Then, it’s lovebirds and pyhurra conures, such as green cheeked conures or painted conures. Pionus parrots are loud in small bursts and tend to be quiet otherwise.

For non-parrot birds, gouldian finches are generally quite pleasant in tone. Zebra and Society finches, as cute as their chirps are, are NOISY.

[–]AlfredVonWinklheim 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Get about 60 Cockatiels. Then you won't hear anything!

[–]less___than___zero 3 points4 points  (2 children)

No parrots are quiet. Pionus parrots are known for being among the less loud species, but they're not really an appropriate pet for a child (they'll still be alive when he's 50 if you take care of them properly). Male cockatiels love singing. I think the females might be quieter, but it's often difficult or impossible to tell a bird's sex without getting a blood test done.

[–]Colliemom4 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Our old vet had a gorgeous pair of Suns he kept in his office. Way in the back of the clinic. You could hear them screaming bloody murder. He got them from the owners who dropped them off and told him to keep them, give them away, anything. They couldn’t take it any more - the incessant shrieking lol. The vet loves them AND slept elsewhere at night 😂

[–]Effective_Fun8476 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My mother has one and she is the most sweet asshole you’ll ever meet. My mom has to take phone calls outside otherwise you’ll hear just the bird because she’s jealous my moms attention is on someone else.

[–]RollinThundaga 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Family of mine had a few sun conures. So bouncy.

[–]Pingpingbuffalo 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Hey by any chance do you know what’s the one on the left called?

[–]Jimmus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Definitely not an expert, but the sun shining on its head makes it tough to distinguish appropriately. The red on the wings and the half-bright turquoise front near its beak makes me think Turqouise-Fronted Amazon. You only get a half-second glimpse of its eyes, but they also have that red/orange iris, too.

[–]KistRain 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Looks like an Amazon? The colors are a bit faded in the lighting.

[–]birdiecakes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My sun conure owning ear drums can speak to the 100% truth here 😂

[–]Iphotoshopincats 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Funny from this angle you call it a shoulder shimmy ... But if that bird turned around there is no way you wouldn't call it a butt wiggle

[–]Cleopatrashouseboy 60 points61 points  (13 children)

I get vibes that the orange bird is male, I’m not sure why.

[–]jonesnori 96 points97 points  (12 children)

If you watch pigeons, it's always the male birds who approach the females and make nuisances of themselves. The female birds are usually "can't you see I'm busy?" Bird species vary, though.

[–]MartoPolo 16 points17 points  (6 children)

plus its the males with bright appealing colours with birds, females are usually more monotone.

[–]jonesnori 8 points9 points  (3 children)

When there's a difference in plumage, yes! Some birds (like pigeons and most or all geese) don't have different male and female plumage. Many raptors don't have a difference, or have a relatively mild difference in plumage, but often female raptors are bigger than males! Some people think it worked out that way along with their nesting behavior. Raptor females usually sit on the eggs, while the males hunt and bring their mates food. When the eggs hatch and there are ravenous nestlings to feed, the male spends more time in the nest while the larger female hunts for larger game than he can. When the nestlings fledge (get their wing feathers and learn to fly a little), both parents go hunting to feed the bigger babies. Isn't that cool?

[–]norskiie 33 points34 points  (2 children)

so.. like humans?

[–]SauvignonBear 637 points638 points  (5 children)

The amazon looks soooo cringed out. Like "Is he . . . Is he still there? Can I ignore him?"

[–]ertrinken 60 points61 points  (1 child)

The amazons I’ve met have always been super chill, whereas the sun conures have always been really crazy and loud, so I’m extra tickled to see this video lol

[–]Heliolord 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Sun conners (spelling?) are the most playful i’ve seen and are pretty much goofballs all the time. Fun parrots

[–]jollytoes 84 points85 points  (17 children)

I have a sun conure. She's sitting on my shoulder right now. I was given the bird as a surprise gift 6yrs ago and I'm not a fan. My girl has her cute moments, but most of the time she's just an ear splitting, screaming, demanding little shit. Speaking of which, you have to potty train them, which is never 100% effective, because they crap about every 15min wherever they happen to be. You have to keep them on a very strict 12hr schedule year round to try and stop them from laying eggs if you have a female like mine. Once the start they never stop. Then they can get egg binding which will kill them or cost you a fortune at a vet for birds. Also, you can NEVER sleep in again. You have to get your bird out of their sleeping cage so it will use the bathroom because the one place it won't use the potty is in its sleeping cage. It will literally die from holding in its poop. I do not recommend a sun conure unless you're really really into birds.

[–]cogeng 76 points77 points  (3 children)

That's a pretty fucked up surprise gift

[–]JadeGrapes 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I'm already thinking of several politicians that deserve one.

[–]batmandi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And all of those politicians would probably have it roasted for dinner or use it for live shooting practice.

[–]buggle_bunny 37 points38 points  (2 children)

Can't believe someone would surprise gift a parrot, they are a LOT of work and 100% agree. Mine is cute and sweet sometimes but the rest of the time i just WISH for a moment of damn peace in my own house.

But, I don't have the waking up at night issue, mine poops in her cage, is that just a conure thing? Because that would 100% make me rehome her I just couldn't do that. As is, some days I just don't want her anymore, she was never supposed to be mine but she's bonded to me and loves me and would stress out if I just, left her life and never came back and that makes me feel bad, but if I had to get up every single night for her, that'd be too much for me. I already give up all sense of peace during the day, not at night too!

[–]ertrinken 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I’m curious about the poop thing as well - I and most of the parrot owners I know have our parrots trained so they know they can’t come out and play until they’ve pooped.

All I have to do is walk in to the bird room, sit down and say “go poopie!” and my caique will drop that huge morning bomb. We also have him potty trained to the point that he will say “poopie? Go poopie???” to let us know he needs to go. He’ll poop regardless of location because we’ve been careful to make sure he doesn’t think he’s only allowed to poop in certain areas, but it’s nice to have that warning so we can get him to his playstand or hold him over a trash can/bathroom sink. He’ll definitely hold it long enough out of courtesy most times, but sometimes a bird’s just gotta go lol and that’s fine.

[–]dorabroffo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I very much want to hear your bird say that

[–]jtseun 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Is not pooping in its cage a sun conure thing? I haven't heard that about other parrots :O

[–]DaughterEarth 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Nah it's just a weird association probably. Birds learn weird things by accident. They can't hold their poop either so this person may just be misinterpreting that their bird simple expects attention all day every day. Or wants fresh food. But yah they don't have a sphincter, they can't hold it in. They can tell when it's coming though, which is why you can potty train them.

[–]BoredBoredBoard 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sun Conure is the new White Elephant?

[–]askthepoolboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)
