Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Pepper is a beautiful Orange Wing Amazon. She was surrendered because her owner died. She is a very sweet, hand tame bird. Pepper loves to sit on her open cage on the top perch and keep an eye on the household activity. She also loves to play with bells and take showers.
Pepper likes to say, "I love Pepper" and "I love you." She does a wolf whistle, and she even whinnies like a horse! Pepper has been on a healthy pellet diet, and she also likes to eat nuts, apples, grapes, and seeds.
Pepper is initially shy but will step up for anyone, even though she may fuss about it. Her foster mom is able to cuddle with her and scratch her head and neck. She has noticed, however, that Pepper is terrified of children. Therefore, it would be best if Pepper went to a home without children.
Pepper will call out with a high pitch in the morning and in the evening but is relatively quiet during the day. She will make a wonderful addition to the right home.
Pepper's approximate hatch date is 5/2002, and her adoption fee is $400.
