Facts about Mr. Magoo

  • Breed: African Grey
  • Color: Gray
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Mr. Magoo
Hi there. My name is Mr. Magoo and I’m an African Grey. I’m a man of few words, actually I’m a bird of no words. Who knows, maybe someday I might talk. We are not sure of my age because we don’t know much about my past life before Rescue . I’m at the very least 26 years old (I have a wild caught band on my foot.) My foster mom and dad think I’m older than that though. I’m fully blind in one eye and I can’t see too much out of my other eye either.

I haven’t been handled in quite a few years so I’m still scared of people. I can be very protective of my space. My foster mom thinks with some time and patience I’ll be able to learn to trust again. The cage I came into Rescue in was too small and it had rust on it. My grip strength and my wings are weak, but with my new roomy cage and new healthy diet I’ll get stronger. Thanks to the wonderful people at Florida Parrot Rescue, I received a beautiful cage and some new toys. My foster mom and dad are working on getting me on a good diet. Now I’m eating Higgin’s safflower mix and Higgin’s naturals. I haven’t decided who “my person” is yet. I do scream when someone approaches my cage, so please move slowly around me. I’m still very scared but, I’m slowly starting to trust. I don’t seem to mind the four-legged friends in the house, but please make sure we are always supervised if we are in the same room together. (We may seem like good buddies but dogs *are* predators.)

I’m looking forward to a forever home. Could that be with you? Please come meet me and let's find out!

While you are waiting to meet me, would you like to buy me something from my Amazon Wish list? I sure would appreciate it! Here is the link:

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Mr. Magoo

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
