Phoenix – Moluccan Cockatoo
Phoenix is a 42-year-old Moluccan Cockatoo who would love his new human to sing to him and give him lots of wooden toys to chew and use to tap on walls. He is life-long friends with Penelope the Blue Fronted Amazon (another adoptable bird at STAR), and they would both be happiest if they could be adopted together. Before he came to STAR, Phoenix spent some time without a lot of human interaction and needs a patient person who will work with him daily to help him feel more comfortable. Like most Cockatoos, Phoenix is loud and needs lots of space to play. He loves oranges, bananas, lettuce, and dried papaya. He is now on a pellet diet but has some calcium deposits in his eyes from being on a seed diet for most of his life. Phoenix is learning to step up and to be more comfortable with people. Ideally Phoenix would go to the same new home as his friend Penelope, but individual adoption will also be considered.
Adoption Fee: $600
