Sex: Unknown
Sub-Species: Senegal Parrot
Adopted on 2021-09-18

I have an adopter lined up, but there are plenty of other Mickaboo birds who still need to find their forever homes!

Hi, I`m Circe, a Senegal Parrot who came to Mickaboo from a hoarding situation. I was terrified of my rescuer/foster parent at first but got over that in a day or so. Now I think she`s great!

My foster mom and I have been working on my diet, husbandry, and social skills, and I`ve learned some helpful or fun behaviors. I can step up and down, turn around in a circle, target, and lay upside down with my feet in the air. I`ll even climb into my carrier on my own!

I was underweight when I came into Mickaboo. I`ve gained some but am still a little light. Whoever takes me in should weigh me every couple of days and encourage me to eat. I also barber myself a little, especially my flight feathers. We`re hopeful that I`ll outgrow this, but my caretaker will have to keep an eye on it.

The good news is that I get along very well with people who will be patient and not come at me too quickly. If you let me meet you halfway, I`ll be your best friend! If you`d like to take me home, let Mickaboo know.
