If you are looking for a:
Sweet and Gentle
"Perch Potato" bird...
are the way to go! They are so sweet and the colors on them are amazing.
The fact that they are not loud but extremely quiet makes them great
"apartment birds." Pionus will do their call in the mornings and
evenings, but they are calling in "their flock." It is not a call that
is repeated all day long.
This is a female Blue Headed Pionus. In this picture, you can
see some of the red vent area.
shows the amazing difference between malnutrition and a well taken care of
bird. These three birds are our three pet Blue Headed Pionus. The one on the
farthest left is a bird we have had for 4
years. Every morning, she has gotten a plate of fresh fruits and veggies.
Also, every day that the outside temperature is friendly, she gets time in her
cage on our screened in porch. The bird on the far right is one that (in this
picture) we had had for 2-3 days. She was kept in an apartment in the
bathroom in the bathtub on a seed diet with no windows and incense sticks
burning! Do you see how her feathers are almost brown and her head is gray?
is "Charley" shortly after we got her. Even after a couple days at our house,
her head is getting bluer!
is Charley again very recently, ....doesn't she look so much
better????? Pionus are said to have a wheeze, but mom calls it a purr, that
they make when they are very pleased. They will also make this noise when
they are scared. Mom snuggles Charley in bed and
scratches her head. Charley purrs the whole time. Since many do not know
what this sounds like, we put a video of it on here for you.
Click on the
picture to the left to hear Charley purr.
can probably read the writing, but this picture so wonderfully describes the
personality of the Blue Crown Conure and the Pionus. The proud Blue Crown is
saying, "My puffy head is prettier than your Blue Head!" And the calm Pionus
is ignoring it!!!
two little kids are brother and sister and they both love birds. They both
wanted to hold and kiss our Blue Head!!!
is an absurdly happy Blue Headed Pionus. When they get happy or excited,
like Jaycie is in this picture, they puff out their cheeks and spread out
their tail. They will also do this if they like someone immensely!
sister, Anna, is whistling a high note
and Jaycie is loving it. Her tail and cheeks are puffed out. Jaycie is our
"Momma" Blue Head, and our father is Rico. who is the most
stunning of all Blue Heads....even his tail is bluer than most.
Blue Headed Pionus are good
with children because of their docile attitude.
your eyes are seeing right! This is a baby Blue Headed Pionus at 1 day old.
We have not had any Pi babies for a few years.
WANNA BE LIKE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Who needs plastic horses
when you have a bird??
The Blue Headed Pionus are
easily trained for harnesses/flight suits because of their quiet and
The Blue Heads are one of the
more colorful Pionus...but not as babies! After weaning, there is a
sprinkling of blue that increase with age. They are really stunning
