Hi, My name is Shady. Thanks for stopping by to check out my profile! I'm a cute Goffin's cockatoo who came to the Refuge with Gittle (Yellow-naped amazon) after our mom passed away. We're both waiting patiently for new homes (although we do not need to be adopted together). I love women, but it takes me a little while to warm up to men. I also really like towels. I was pretty plucked when I first came to the Refuge, but I'm sprouting some new feathers and looking pretty good these days, if I do say so myself.
