Facts about Sonny

- Color: Green
- Age: Adult
- Sex: Male
My name is Sonny!
I am a special needs pet.
My name is Sonny, I’m a 28yr old Yellow Naped Amazon. I was raised by a man since I was a baby and he was my best friend! When I first came into rescue, I had a damaged air sac (but had had it for a really long time before I came to FPR). The rescue sent me to a really great doctor to have the air sac repaired, but it was not successful L But, the Doc says I am fine and that it is just a little imperfection that makes me the bird I am. I LOVE to talk! I say “hi honey”, “whatcha doing”, “I love youuuuuu” and I love the knock -on-the-door-sound and then yelling “COME IN”. If you’re talking I am too! I really love to sing even though I sound like Ethel Murman when I do, and I keep up a conversation with the best of them! I have this crazy affinity for BELLS - I like to ring them. I am very vocal, love to talk and I have the best belly laugh you’ve ever heard! I love to hang out with you outside of my cage as much as possible and I have to have my showers! I am not needy - unless of course you’re eating something – but I really REALLY prefer men and would do well in a home that has at least one man that will socialize with me A LOT!! I always wanna know whatcha doin? So if you can look over my slight imperfection, and would like a good companion, I think we could live happily ever after!
