I walked in to find these two, drenched, sitting on their rope perch. Went to get the camera to take a picture but apparently they are self conscious about how they look when they're wet because I got told off..

Which was even funnier...

Haha, I guess they wanted some post bath time privacy! :D
Those "warning" moves remind me of my lovebird Sindel, she does that when I change her food and water, only her beak opens up and she hisses almost like a snake. I'm only glad she just threatens and doesn't actually lunge at my hands. :eek:

so adorable they looked a little typsy for some reason lol
Hah, yes they do look a bit tipsy :D

I love the stop for a quick preening--- then back to squawking at you, lol!:D
It's hard to take them seriously when they stop for a sweet cuddle in the middle of their threat display lol

It's funny that Lovebirds do it too. I guess Sindel doesn't like her stuff messed with! Kree always does it when the camera gets too near for his liking. Arra usually only does it when I accidently disturb her sleep and she hisses too. I'd hate to think what it would be like if they actually used those beaks! But it's all for show.

I think your video is too funny. I especially like the "3D" close-ups: they're all like "Stay away, I'm warning you! I'm a big scary birddddddd!!!" Then they go back to being cute and cuddly with all that preening and kissing...
You just got to love conures!:)

so b ig and bad and scary! LOL. awww. they're cute. Tamale does that lungy thing too, but no hissing. but he doesn't do it quite like the conures are doing. that was a funny display. my friend had a sun once, and it did that move and would bite hard if you didn't listen!

HA, they look so adorable so scruffy and yucky and trying to be all grown up and tough. Thanks for sharing Allie.:budge:
Yep they always look like they've been rolling in the mud after a bath. Which is ironic LOL Thanks for looking Cathy :)

What a great video! Thanks for sharing it, Allie.
Thanks Deb! :p

Those are some seriously cute birds!
They seem to think so, they're very spoiled and naughty :cool:

I know, they're such silly creatures. Too much personality in one package :)

Oh no! haha Suns can be pretty stubborn but at least your friend's bird gave a warning first! They often put on this display when they're wet, I think they know they can't fly and it makes them defensive but I don't see how anyone could be scared of that face :rolleyes:

In the first part of the video, it cracked me up hugely that they moved ever so s-l-o-w-l-y! Like they had been into something they should not have! :laughing:

Very funny! Thank you for sharing :)
