Wild Origins of the Sun Conure

Natural Vocalizations and Speech

In the wild, sun conures are extremely loud and vocal. Their piercing calls can travel over a mile. They use their loud squawks and shrieks to communicate within large flocks. As pets, sun conures often scream frequently out of boredom or excitement. While they can mimic speech, their talking ability is limited to just a few words or phrases.
