Update December 24, 2012: We are thrilled to report that Sam has moved to Maple Valley where he joined a flock including another Dusky Headed Conure. We are told that Sam lit up when he met the other conure.

Sam is a presumed female Dusky Headed Conure parrot. Sam was purchased from Denise's Parrot Place on Mercer Island and her hatch date is June 27, 2003. She does have all of her flight feathers but she has never been able to fly. Her cage door is kept open most of the time so she is free to climb on top of her cage. Sam also has a perch which sits on a table and she spends a lot of time there as well. Although an only parrot, Sam lives with two dogs.
