A flock of sun conures flying across an evening sky was once said to have resembled a beautiful sunset. Hence, the name sun conure was assigned to the species. The sun conure's body color possesses a yellow-orange glow with a distinct resmeblance to gold. The brilliant blend of yellow, orange, red, blue, and green colors means sun conures outshine most other birds in appearance.
Endearing, charming, playful and personality plus packaged into a vibrant bundle of feathers... that's a Sun Conure! Sun Conures are playful, energetic, and acrobatic.
