This month we acquired some stunning new young birds some of which we hope will become future breeders. They are hand tame and already feel like members of our feathered family! They are all relatively rare birds in Canada and include a pair of Blue Throated Conures, Derbyan Parakeets, and a single male Yellow -Backed Chattering Lory. We hope he might become friends with our male Chattering Lory, Quincey. So far, they just observe one another from a distance. Lories are not generally considered to be friendly with other birds but we have not found this to be true in our own flock. I will be posting pictures as they settle in to their new home here at The Perch!
