"I was given a conure from a friend of my sisters. She told me that she rescued "Baby Bird" from a neighbor that had put "him" under a porch balcony in a caged area, where the wire was hit with rocks, shoes, sticks and whatever else. But she could no longer keep him because she had to move and no pets were allowed. I have read the info you have here on your website. He is not very sociable, but will take food from mine and my kids fingers, but not open hands (he shys away, like he is scared). We have never mistreated him nor intend to ever. However, he has a very HIGH pitch squack, that is ear piercing sometimes. I read here that they use that pitch if feel uncomfortable or insecure. We have had him for about a year now and he is still doing it. He does no tricks, but does attempt to make a noise at night ressembling a kiss somewhat when I cover his cage. Would you happen to have any suggestions as to how I can help him feel more secure and tone done his pitch. Thank you very much for your time. Janet Gibson P.S. We even have other birds that are in the same area he is located and that he can associate with."
