The National Aviary - Golden Conure

We went to the aviary here in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago and got to see so many different birds from around the world.  This pretty Golden Conure caught my eye as he flitted around the tree branches, and came to rest right in front of me.  I think he must like the attention.  He is a type of parakeet, about a foot in length, native to the Amazon.  What a treat to see one just two feet away!


  1. Beautiful! I wonder what kind of parrot this is? I love birds so much,I have a blue crowned conure. :)

    1. Mary, I know you love birds - you have such great bird photos! I didn't realize you had one. I should look up this bird...I am sure I can figure it out.

  2. love the yellow! he's beautiful!

  3. Beautiful shot V. :)

    Have a lovely day, cheers, T. :)
