Facts about Tuckie

  • Breed: Lorikeet
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
Tuckie is a 24~ year old Yellowbacked Chattering Lory who really does love to chatter. She likes to whistle back and forth and says her name several different ways, tells you when its time to go to bed, and wants to know what you're up to! Tuckie, like most lories, is partly on a liquid diet -- she eats lory nectar mixed with fruit juice, which she really loves! Tuckie has an old foot injury, but, it doesn't slow her down. She loves to play with her toys and is very mobile. Bring Tuckie home and you'll always have someone wanting to know "Whatcha doin'?"

About Our Rescue Group...

The Phoenix Landing Foundation (PL) is a non-profit all-volunteer organization. PL promotes and protects the welfare of parrots, especially those with an extensive lifespan. We provide for parrots of all types in need, and act as advocates for those without protection. Visit our website at for more information. We also sponsor great educational seminars! All are welcome (please do not bring your birds or other pets). Most of PL's classes are free, although of course we always welcome donations.
