Hi, I'm Dizzy the gold-capped conure. I'm named after my curiously playful, hard-to-keep-up-with nature and not because of any actual balance problems. In fact, I'm quite agile and seem very healthy.
About my species: the gold-capped conure is one of the Aratinga genus, the same as the Cherry-headed and Jenday. We're about the same size as the Jenday and, while we might not seem as colorful at first, we like to think of ourselves as more demure, with a touch of auburn on our bellies and a splash of red and gold on our heads.
I'm just over four years old and have had the same human companion for my whole life until I came to Mickaboo. My human had to move recently, and, because his new home doesn't allow birds he, very regrettably, had to give me up. So, here I am, asking you if you might be interested in adopting me.
Some things you should know to help you make your decision: I'm very friendly and good with people. I'm on a great diet. As you can see, I'm quite attractive. While I'm usually a quiet bird, I have the potential to be as loud as the other birds in my genus. And, trust me, we can be loud! Most of the time, however, my vocalizations consist of all manner of happy, content, playful sounds. When my foster mom is petting my head I make what she describes as a purring sound, like a kitten. Other times I chirp. I even have a vocalization that my foster mom describes, not so onomatopoetically, perhaps, as a "flowing series of guttural sounds at a higher pitch than a brook, per se." She really said that. I don't remember making a sound like that, but I'm sure it was just something else from my happy repertoire.
In short, I'm a young, distinctive, friendly, playful bird who will make a great companion for the right person or family. I'll appreciate plenty of love and companionship in an enriching environment, with human friends who are ready to hear a lot of contented purring mixed with a little enthusiastic noise once in a while.
