Mickey is a Spectacled Amazon, also known as a White Fronted Amazon. They are one of the smaller Amazons (about 10 inches). Mickey is 24 years old and lived most of that time with his previous owner. Unfortunately, she became ill and could no longer care for him.
Mickey loves being outside of his cage, sitting with his human family. He also loves kids but can become possessive of them and may want to guard them from their parents! He is good with adults too, when kids are not around.
Mickey will say a few things, like at bedtime he says, "Mickey go night, night!"
Mickey's approximate hatch date is 1987, and his adoption donation is $300.
