Leo's Story

parrot adoption

Breed: Goffin's Cockatoo

Gender: Male

Birth Year: April 2000

Well, hello there! My name is Leo and I'm a spunky boy who loves a home-cooked [bird] meal.

I’m currently looking for an experienced bird handler to provide me with love, patience and respect (I have shown a preference for women). I was hurt in my past, and as you might expect I’m learning to love again. I am very affectionate and I want someone to love and trust in return.

I have a BIG personality and in my own mind, I’m a clown/entertainer. The more I can make you laugh, the happier I am. I have awesome dance moves and I can sing with the best of them. I am a good talker and imitator, who will remind you how much of a “pretty bird” I am. I enjoy listening to music, playing on a hanging swing, dancing, chewing wood toys, and foraging for my favorite treats. I play very well independently (I am not a “Velcro bird”), and I am very good about staying on my cage while being allowed out. I also listen very well when you tell me it’s time to go back in.

Please do not become discouraged when you come to see me if I don’t exhibit these behaviors. I am a bird who is a bit intimidated by my environment here, however I can easily adjust to your home. In foster care, I shared a home with a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, 3 parakeets, and a 9 year old child. I did very well in this environment.

Should you need references, my foster mom would love to meet with you to let you know how great I am. Please make an appointment to come and see me, after all we could be soul mates.
