Other Pets at Shelter...
Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Desi is a sweet Sun Conure that is constantly wanting attention. He enjoys sitting on a perch out of his cage, or on top of his cage throughout the day. When he wants attention or feels like he is being ignored, he will make a loud caw like noise to try to get you to pick him up. During meal times, Desi's favorite treat is wheat or oat bread with a little bit of peanut butter on it. He also enjoys many vegetables and a few fruits. Desi can bite, but it is rare that he does. When he is upset, it is possible to scratch his head and give him a few pets and he will then let you pick him up. He comes out of the cage easily and knows the command Step-Up. He also knows a few tricks such as "fly" which he will flap his wings, or "Go upside down" which will have him drop backwards off your finger and hold on upside down with one foot. He loves adult females, especially if they have long hair that he can play in and snuggle up against their neck.
Desi's approximate hatch date is 2009, and his adoption fee is $150.
