Fancy meeting you here, darling!  Are you the one I’ve been looking for my whole 16 years?  Please, call me Patra.  I am the absolute most beautiful Moluccan Cockatoo you will ever meet! Birthday Est August 2000.

Some things you should know about me, since I believe in being up front and telling you all about myself: I am a diva – in all senses of the word.  I love to sing, and I can be loud if I think you are too far and can’t hear me.  I LOVE attention, and I would do best in a home where my primary caregiver is home most of the time.  I am a total cuddle bug, and I adore all the snuggles and scratches you can give me.  What is this fancy-schmancy thing I’m wearing, you ask?  I thought you’d never ask!  It’s the latest in feather protection jewelry.  You see, I love my showers and I love preening – one has to stay beautiful.  However, sometimes I get over-zealous in preening and I self-mutilate.  That means I cause harm to my skin, in addition to pulling my feathers out.  This tends to happen more when I’m feeling needy, but then I don’t look so pretty, then I get upset, and it becomes a vicious cycle.  So, it’s just easier for all of us if I wear it except for when it’s bath time.

I’ve been called challenging, I’ve been called fussy, but they’re just names.  I mean, all this wonderful personality that is Patra doesn’t come without a little bit of effort, and we’re not all perfect.  So, if you think we are meant to be, why don’t you look me up sometime soon?

About For The Love Of Birds

About Our Rescue Group...

For the Love of Birds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of companion birds. We are a network of volunteers throughout New Jersey, and surrounding areas. We take in birds in need of new homes, and place them in nurturing and educational foster homes until a loving new family is found.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption procedure begins with completing an adoption application and returning it to us. We will check your references and then call you for a telephone interview. While we check your references, we will ask that you review an educational power point presentation. After your application is approved, it is our policy that you visit with the bird(s) three times to have multiple interactions with them and give you time to consider the adoption and get ready for your new family member. There is an adoption fee for each bird.
