Frodo!

Frodo: A Special Sun Conure
By Katie McMan

The sun conure originated from South America. Though I am sure they have some scientific name, I am unsure of it.

Frodo is my Sun Conure. I have had him for a little over a year now, and have been in love with him since I met him. I got Frodo from my friend's mother, who was traveling over Christmas, and needed someone to watch her bird. I had been interested in Sun Conures for a while, and my mom thought it might be the perfect 'birth control' technique to ruin my love for noisy birds. WRONG! When they brought Frodo to my house, I instantly fell in love with him.

I was heartbroken the morning I had to gather Frodo's belongings to give him back. When I had everything together, and was saying my goodbyes, the phone rang. It was my friend's mom on the other end saying that if I wanted to, and it was okay with my parents, I could KEEP Frodo… For free! After much consideration, my parents agreed to let me do a 'trial run' with him to make sure I was ready to take on the responsibility of a small parrot. I am guessing you have figured out that the trial run went well, because I still have my bird.


Frodo conquers The Banana!

My friend's mom came to my house a while back to make sure Frodo was settling in well, and found him sitting on my shoulder. She was shocked, because he would only crawl around the cage for her. She was thrilled that her bird found a great home, and I was thrilled that I got to keep my baby.

Frodo has a wide vocabulary; it just depends on when he wants to talk. He has a knack for making me look like an idiot!
