Facts about Mellie

  • Breed: Eclectus
  • Color: Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: Mellie
Hi! My name is Mellie and I am a female Eclectus. It's not known how old I am but the Vet guesses I am around 20 years old or older.

I am working on being handled but I have not been handled much in the past so it's new to me and I'm a little scared. I know with love, patience and time I will look forward to stepping up onto my favorite humans' hand, arm or shoulder!

I am on such a healthy diet! I love pellets, fruits and veggies. I am very quiet, I do make some different noises but nothing loud. I am a special needs bird because of an injury that I was found with. The circulation in my left leg was affected by something that may have been wrapped around my leg before the good people at FPR took me in. I have meds that I take daily and I will have to take for the rest of my life. If you are interested in adopting me, please be prepared and able to administer these to me. My foster mom will show you how to do it. I also need special food that can only be purchased through the vet. My foster mommy will explain all this to you as well.

My foster mom says I am a very good bird. Wouldn't you like to come meet a good bird like me and take me home forever? I'd sure like to meet you!!!! While you are waiting to meet me, would you like to buy me something from my wish list? I especially need some different sized perches which will help my circulation issues. Here is the link:

Thanks for taking time to read this. Hope to meet you soon!
Love, Mellie

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.
