Hi! I'm Martha. Although I was given a girl's name, I'm actually a boy. Sometimes people call me Marty. I'm a gorgeous Citron Crested cockatoo. While I'm an awesome bird, I do have one quirk. And it's a pretty big one: I absolutely, positively cannot live in a household with males. I do not trust males and don't discriminate among them. I will attack you if you're a male and this is the reason that I must go to an all-female home.
