Gwayne

Green Cheek Conure

Meet

Gwayne

Gwayne is an adorable 16-year-old conure with an outsized personality.

He’s a bit standoffish to people he doesn’t know, but can be an extraordinarily affectionate bird who will take every opportunity to snuggle against your neck. He’s also quite comfortable hanging out inside his cage with the door open as long as he can see you in the room.

He isn’t particularly fond of close contact with other parrots, but he tolerates other parrots being in the house (and even on the same person) without too much issue.

He’s very vocal when he wants a bath or to be picked up, and loves to look out a window when he has to be
in his cage.
