Ok I am still searching as I write but this is the first thing I found. FUN FACTS 1. Due to the small quantity of conures in the wild, little is known about this bird. 2. Though they are not known as a truly social bird, pairs and small groups may be seen feeding in the treetops together. 3. Conures have a tendency to spend long periods of time in their nest, even when not breeding. 4. They are playful birds and are said to be clown-like. 5. Because of their sharp screeching calls, they are often known as "little macaws". If you can't find a population number you might be able to use #1 to explain it. I obtained that from http://www.seaworld.org/animal-info/Animal-bytes/animalia/eumetazoa/coelomates/deuterostomes/chordata/craniata/aves/psittaciformes/sun-conure.htm I've looked over a couple other websites and it looks like the population of this particular bird is currently unknown. Sorry I couldn't help more.
