Kiwi is a Red Sided Eclectus Parrot. Red-sided Eclectus Parrots are native to the large island of New Guinea and the surrounding islands (including Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool), Kai and offshore islands (Goodenough and Normandy). Here are some notes from the family who is foster caring him.
Kiwi is super smart. He watches, learns and pays attention to everything around him. He learned the game peek a boo yesterday & had so much fun trying to surprise my husband. He talked a lot the first day and now is more reserved. I think he's just adapting. He does say hi...hello...kiwi...hi kiwi...hello kiwi...hi coco(someone he used to know?) wanna go nigh nigh....step up (learned in less than an hour). [He also knows] other phrases I can't remember right now.
Kiwi has a screech like a howler monkey but only does it when he feels he needs attention or is being ignored. He likes to hop around like a kangaroo and loves to explore and follow you around the house. He's only bit me once. We figured out his trigger and simply put him down for a sec and let him calm down and he's fine.
Kiwi also likes to turn his head upside down, I think the world looks better that way...to him anyway. He's not a great eater but we are working on that.
If you would like to adopt this young, energetic, smart and beautiful boy then please contact the Species Coordinator using the link above. Thanks for looking.
