Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Tinker is a Blue Crowned Conure, who was found outside in June of 2012, and surrendered to STAR. Since he was found outside, we don't know much about his age or sex. He's quite the talker and will sit on your finger when he's away from his cage. He's fairly cage territorial, if you put your hand in his cage, but then many birds are.
Tinker likes to hang onto the side of the inside of his cage and will take food from your fingers. When offered a new food he says, "What's that?" He will let you tickle his belly and even says, "Tickle, tickle, tickle!" With a little time and patience Tinker will make a great addition to your family.
Tinker's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption donation is $200.
