New addition!

We always stop at Petco after eating at our favorite restaurant, Sakura. Usually, the birds are kind of nasty and want to bite the crap out of your finger (which we found out is because all the other Petcos send their trouble birds to them!). But this one conure got our attention and we fell in love. Awww.... We've had a parrot in the past, an umbrella cockatoo which was a little too much bird for us to handle, especially with young kids in the house. Luckily a friend really wanted her so it worked out for everyone. But we've missed having a birdy companion around. He/she is a Jenday Conure (I think, they said it's a Sun Conure but the markings look more like a Jenday). We haven't come up with a name yet, it seems like bird names always end with an "ee" sound! The bird is sweet as can be and seems to be adjusting well, although I can tell it's a little nervous. And of course it's a picky eater and is only eating the soft white things in its Zupreem food mix, which I think is dried banana. It's a little louder than I anticipated, that was one of my qualms with the cockatoo. I'm going to Joann's tonight to buy some fabric to sew a cover for its cage...
