Penelope – Blue Fronted Amazon
Penelope is a 42-year-old Blue Fronted Amazon who would be happiest if she could be adopted with her life-long friend Phoenix the Moluccan Cockatoo (another adoptable bird at STAR). She is assumed to be female but has not been DNA tested. Penelope is not used to being handled but can say “hello” and likes to chatter expressively to nearby people. If you try to leave before she has finished talking to you, she will let you know about it. She has been switched to a pellet diet, and loves dried papaya, pumpkin seeds, and bananas. Penelope may need some encouragement to get comfortable playing with toys, as right now she seems to enjoy looking at them and gently pushing them. So far, she has not been very loud, and would love for her new human to sit near her and talk to her for hours. Penelope has arthritis in her feet and needs a variety of perch sizes to help her feel comfortable. Ideally Penelope would be adopted into the same new home as Phoenix but individual adoption will be considered.
Adoption Fee: $400
