Leto, the Parrot :)

610 posts in this topic

Soooooooo, many of you know I've been dying to get a parrot forever :thud Well, today my parrot dreams came true :lisa:

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 :yikes

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 :heart

Without further adieu, here are some pictures because I know a couple subbies are wanting to see my new baby, Leto :wub:

On the car ride home :)

Ohhh yay!!! I am just so excited for you! :heart

How did Dooley react seeing him at first? I love that he was calling out when you left the room, i don't know much about birds but it sounds like a really good sign, and so early on! :nana

I am so glad this finally happened. Maybe a good thing it took so long. :hug

Congrats, and Thank you for sharing!!!

And look at all those pretty greens. No matter you're smitten. :teehee

Dooley say :tantrum:madrant He's very jelly! And has been glued to me :wub: he's interested in Leto and his noise and deposits on the floor :yikes but mostly I think he wants to know that he's not being replaced :o:no:

He has very pretty colors! I am glad he is settling in well for you. By the way, I love your ring!

Thanks Heather :) his coloring is subtle, but soo amazing in the sunshine :thud

Thanks about the ring. It was a Christmas pressie a few yrs back ;)

I think you may get your wish :D Leto would make a spectacular rug, but I've got to finish a challenge rug by mid April :krazy:

 

Congratulations on Leto!!!! He's beautiful!!!!

Thanks Dawn :)

Well, tell Colin he's welcome to visit any time :nana But he probably doesn't want to live with me because I lack parenting skills :teehee

In that Food Face pic, he doesn't just look "not shy" -- he looks positively SMUG!  He's all, "Hai, I'm Leto, and this chick seems to worship me, but why wouldn't she?"

He's beautiful!!! I've never seen one like yours before.

 

Thanks! He is a less commonly kept parrot I think because pionus coloring isn't as striking as other species, but he's so beautiful in real life and he's a mellow fellow :heart
