Another Day at the Zoo: Sun Conures as Pets

We had Wilbur, a Sun Conure, join us in the office yesterday. This gorgeous little guy was put to work playing with toys, eating food, and nibbling on treats. He was extremely personable, and he loved having so much attention lavished on him from different people in the office. During Wilbur’s time with us, he was held, snuggled, petted, and kissed quite often! Not too bad for a couple hours getting photographed!
