Watermelon is a gorgeous Peachfaced Love Bird who is at least ten years old. This little guy loves toys with bells; one minute he will bat, chew and squabble at the toy bell, the next minute he will cozy up to the bell, letting it rest on top of his head. He also enjoys almost daily bathes. Watermelon arrived at STAR because he didn’t receive enough attention at home. He was once very affectionate towards people, but is currently not hand tame. His foster mom is working to get him used to human attention again. Currently, he will eat millet from a person’s hand and he is starting to feel confident enough to step out of his cage. These are both great first steps. With time, he may again live up to his species namesake.
Watermelon’s approximate hatch date is 2003
