Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Amazon
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Leo
Hello. My name is Leo. I'm extremely shy but I *am* an Amazon, so I can be pretttty vocal if there is something that I want you to know. At the moment, my vocal skills are limited to "Amazon-ese" but my foster dad still thinks I might have some hidden English language talents.

I overheard the nice doctor tell my foster dad that I'm on "the younger side" (estimated to be under 20) and very healthy. My feathers are beautiful (said modestly) and I'm learning to eat a healthy diet of pellets, fresh chop, fruits and an occassional nutriberry. I really really love almonds though. I could eat those all day!

I am really not comfortable stepping up just yet onto anyone's hand but I can be tranferred from my cage or my playstand on a stick. I do seem to have a preference for men (although I do tolerate women) and my foster daddy has been working with me on my trust issues so one day I will step up onto someone's hand or arm.

I am ok with those other 4 footed furry creatures (cats and dogs), but please be sure they keep their distance!

I am looking for my forever home! Could it be with you? Would you like to come meet me and find out? Gee, I'd sure like to meet you! I bet I could be a great companion to someone who could be loving and patient and let me go at my own pace. I bet that someone is you!

Look at this!I have an Amazon Wish List. Wow. I'd be so greatful if you would consider buying something from it for me! here it is:

Thanks for stopping by and reading my story. Hope to meet you soon!

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.
