Other comments: I am a plucked but sweet little bird. 

 

I love to be on your shoulder and will give lots of kisses sometimes even making the kissing noise. I love to rub my head all over your face which my foster mom loves. I make some of the cutest noises and say words like "come here." My foster mom is still trying to figure out what some of the other things I say are but my Quaker accent makes it hard to understand. 

 

I am learning to like new foods besides Nutriberries and have been trying out the various veggies, fruits and mash that my foster moms give me. I seem to really like them so far and empty my bowl. They have also been filling my bowl with pellets which I am not so sure I like yet. I will still eat my Nutriberries first.  

 

Cage aggression is normal for a Quaker but if you tap  my door and ask me to come over I will gladly step up on you. I am not a traveler although I can fly. I spend most of my time on the door of my cage or inside on my favorite perch. This may change as I get used to my environment. 

 

My foster mom put some new toys around my cage that I am just trying to get used to. Haven't tried them out yet but they are still new. I do love my mirror and have a wood toy with a bell I love to shake. I know some tricks which is very cute. 

 

If you work from home I would be a perfect companion. I will sit on your shoulder just chatting quietly rubbing my head all over you. If you tell me time to go potty I fly back to my cage to take care of business. 

 

If you are interested in learning more contact EBR. I am very new to rescue and am still being evaluated but my foster mom already thinks I am pretty special.
