"Dusty," as we call our male Dusky Pionus, has adapted well to his new flock of humans and is a joy to have around. He's friendly to strangers (as least when they have a treat for him). He's also a smart little guy, and it doesn't long for him to learn a trick. He's gentle, and even when he's a little annoyed, he never bites hard. He's affectionate, and loves to have his head scratched. He has his favourites in the family, but is good with everyone. Yet, for all the time he likes to spend with us, he also doesn't need to be with us every second. He can also entertain himself when we can't spend time with him. We're very glad he's a part of the family and would recommend a Dusky Pionus to anyone!
