Proud new owner of a Patagonian Conure.
City / State / Country Location
Annapolis, Maryland, USA
I have no idea what a 'fid' is. I'm totally new to all of this. I'm assuming this is a space to describe my 'feathered kid' perhaps?
I own Syd - a 3 year old Patagonian Conure. Purchased him from a local pet store where they were 'rehabing' him about 2 months ago. He came from a neglected home, he had pulled a ton of feathers and the pet store was nursing him back to health.
Having owned dogs my whole life, I had no idea these guys had such personality. I met Syd and fell in love. He sat on my shoulder and we bonded instantly. I visited him three times before my husband and I decided to offer him to loving home he deserves.
He was the absolute perfect bird for one week. Then he started yelling. I've never been challenged quite like this. I can train a dog, no problem....but I'm now seeing that birds operate a bit differently. We're working with him and seeing tiny bits of improvement. I am learning so much! He is absolutely perfect in every other way, so I have high hopes that we can get the screaming under control.
So there ya have it....Syd, my fid. :^)
I'm a graphic designer by day and a photographer in my evenings/weekends! I do mainly portrait work right now and have done several pet portraits. I absolutely love working with people AND animals or all kinds. I've taken a few bird portraits that turned out amazingly well - if anyone is interested, visit my site www.lexsomers.com and drop my an e-mail from there!
What other type of pets do you own?
