Other comments: Is your house too quiet? Then Atlas and Icarus are determined to fix that for you! Icarus is a lively Jenday Conure. He is fond of treats and apples, and loves to watch the humans in the house go about their business. Atlas the parakeet is his quieter counterpart, and is still a little skittish but enjoys making laps around his foster-home's bird room when out of his cage. Icarus will step up but only on his terms and needs some work stepping up when on or inside their cage. Their foster family is also working with Icarus to change his enthusiastic whistle (and his habit of sitting on his "porch" and yelling) to something a little more pleasant; he is an eager student who is progressing nicely with the aid of some popcorn. These guys love the company of each other and need to be adopted together. Icarus would do best with a experienced adopted and seems to bond stongly with one person.
