The Blue-crowned Conure can be loud. As with most conures, they scream to get attention. However, Blue-crowned Conures are very playful birds. They have good mimicking ability. The Blue-crowned Conure was made famous in the movie "Paulie." However, they cannot carry on a conversation like in the movie.

In the wild, the Blue-crowned Conures are found in parts of South America foraging in flocks for seeds, fruits and berries, throughout forests, thickets and forest edges.
