|Breed:||Parakeet - Quaker||Color:||Unknown||Age:||Adult|
Phoenix is a Quaker Parrot, 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, but we believe him to be young, perhaps two years old or so.
As time goes on, Phoenix is becoming more vocal, enjoying whistling and making kissy noises. When you make a kissy noise to him he does it right back! He's not much of a snuggler, but he does like to be petted. He seems to like kids and other birds yet isn't crazy about other animals, like dogs, cats, and Guinea pigs.
Most Quakers are quite cage territorial, but Phoenix is not quite to the extent other Quakers are. He may lunge if he doesn't want to be taken out of the cage, but he doesn't bite, and he likes to be petted when on top of his cage. He's a very good-natured and sweet bird.
Phoenix's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption fee is $100.
