Professor's Story


parrot adoption

Breed: Timneh African Grey

Adopted: May 2011

Passed: April 2015

Professor had found his forever home! Professor came to us because his dad became too sick to take care of him any longer. We didn't know how old he was, but he was a friendly bird, easily steped up on any offered hand.

He whistled a lot and responded very easily to all whistles. He did not like to cuddle close, but he would hang out on your shoulder all day if he could.

In 2015, Professor ended up in the hospital where his vet discovered a mass. His moms felt it was in his best interest to euthanize him, as he likely wouldn't have tolerated exploratory surgery well. Professor spent his last several years very loved by his two moms and Miss Allie, an Alexandrian parrot and Precious, a Blue-Crowned conure who was also adopted from the Refuge.

Professor will be very missed by all who knew and loved him!
