Hi, I'm Nora! I'm a thirteen year old Congo African Grey. Thirteen is still quite young, as we Greys can live for fifty years or more. My foster mom says I'm a real love-sponge, whatever that is. All I know is a girl can't ever get too many head scritches! When mom stops scritching, I give her hand a gentle nudge with my beak and bow my head to let her know that it's not time to stop yet.
I like to stay busy: bonking my toys, ringing my bell and shredding phone books. I travel everywhere with a whole stack of phonebooks and I'm very good at shredding them. Mom says shedding phone books is a good outlet for me and much better than shredding my feathers. You see, I have a little plucking problem. I've been plucking for a long time, so it's kind of become a habit. My new family will need to be patient with me. But with lots of love and the best of care, I just might forget about my feathers.
Mom says I'm a real doll and quite the chatterbox. I speak English in several different voices of the favorite people I've know over the years. I do lots of cute whistles, wild bird calls, and some truly amazing household sounds. If you would like to meet me, I'll tell you all about it myself. You can email the African Grey Coordinator at the link above to learn more. I'm ready for my new home. Could it be with you?
