I`m Luna, a 17-year-old Senegal Parrot who`s on a great diet and very acrobatic. Like a lot of us African birds, I like hanging upside down and watching the world from that angle. Also, I can say, “hello” and “Pretty birdie.”

I was pretty standoffish about people when I first came into foster care. I wouldn`t step up and would shy away from direct human contact. I`ve made significant progress in just a few weeks, though. I will step up and visit with my foster dad and his son, and they say that I`m a charming bird. I`m getting used to my foster mom, too. I still vocalize pretty loudly and, seemingly, inexplicably, and I still don`t know how to play with toys, so I have a way to go.

Mickaboo thinks I`ll be a great companion bird for the right person or family -- someone who will continue to work with me on basic husbandry training (step-up/down, stationing) and will be patient while introducing me to toys and otherwise expanding my comfort zone. I need the right mix of work and play to help me feel most comfortable as a bird in a human world.
