    Leto, the Parrot :)

    Soooooooo, many of you know I've been dying to get a parrot forever Well, today my parrot dreams came true I adopted Leto (the name he came with and I don't think I should change it) from STAR. St Louis's avian rescue group. He's 8 yrs old and originally from Tennessee. He is a Maximillion Pionus Parrot. Which is a medium sized parrot from South America. He was babbling on the way home and already flock calling when I went to the bathroom and just step out of the room he was in He's eating and drinking and had some banana which I'm pretty sure he wasn't given real human food much so he was unsure but had some because my dog and I were enjoying it in front of him Without further adieu, here are some pictures because I know a couple subbies are wanting to see my new baby, Leto On the car ride home This pic really shows his lovely feathers All birds love their millet you can see Leto's tongue Such a good eater Food face He doesn't seem shy I hope you like my birdy thread I'll update frequently

    Leto's first Gotcha Day

    Today is Leto's first Gotcha Day with my family and he'll be 9 years old this year Many of you know the struggle I went thru before I was able to rescue Leto. So this makes this day extra sweet
  3. I’m shocked you guys! Shocked I say! Meet Alex, my now one and a bit year old Jendaya conure. He is a captive bred bird. You can also see him in my display picture on my shoulder! Here he is a little more then a year ago... And now! Alex is unusual for a jendaya/janday conure as he has not only a very vibrant face and chest (more orange face and red chest then the usual yellow face and orange belly) but abnormally bright flight feathers! In jendays and suns typically these are a dark blue/black. In Alex they are a vibrant navy and blue! Due to his rich colours and the fact that he is a pure jenday an not a X gen sun/jenday hybrid as is common here, we have had a few keen breeders enquire into buying him. But that’s not happening, ever! Alex loves to play rough, chew on everything and ruin new clothes by putting holes in them. He also likes cuddles, long naps in the sun, and yelling at the parrots outside with his conure scream. Sometimes, if he really likes you, he's bob his head as if trying to regurgitate you a meal, though he's still a little too young for any of that behaviour! He is named for the original Alex, an African grey owned by Dr Irene Pepperburg who learnt not only how to speak, but the meanings behind those words and changed the way we think about animal cognition forever. Pepperburg is also special to me as she made her way in the then (and still) male dominated scientific and research departments despite ridicule and hardship about not only her work, which was then seen as quite stupid, but her gender. I highly recommend learning about her and the original Alex (and the birds that now carry on the recearch after he passed away) here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Fpad20Zbk and see him in action here counting objects (and onjects within a set) asking for nuts, corks, to go back and many other things that he shown he actually understood. And another good one here I hope you enjoy both my Alex and his namesake!
