What’s that?? OOOO! An apple, I WANT IT! What’s that?? OOOO! Crackers, I WANT that too! Cake, you say I can’t have it…but I want it too! It’s my favorite…I think…
We would call Polly a pig, if we didn’t know what a great macaw she is… So we’ll just say she has a great appetite ;)
Polly is a 21 year old female blue and gold macaw. She has only had 2 owners (one of whom cared for her since she was a baby until she was 15 – when the owner passed away). While she has historically had a bit of a preference for men, she seems equally happy for the attention (and food) from any of our male AND female volunteers. She is now available for adoption as her last family could no longer provide her with the attention and ‘out time’ she needs. She has a few ‘ticks’, but with consistency, a great diet, enrichment and a lot of love, we feel that she will get over these soon enough (rubbing the one side of her face and regurgitating on her one shoulder). We have been told that she is quote the talker – she is still getting used to everything at WPR. Polly steps up (actually, back) well, is sweet and gentle and makes us all giggle with her quirky ways.
Large bird experience preferred.
