Hi, I`m April, a Conure from the famous "Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" flock in San Francisco. I`m bonded with Lyon, and we need to be adopted together.

Mickaboo took me in during the month of April (thus the name) when I was found with a bad head injury. It`s healed now, but it looks like the scarring will keep most of my feathers from growing back. But hey, my foster mom thinks it makes me look chic in a punk sort of way. And, I have this one feather that`s peeking out from the top. Kinda cool. It`s also earned me the nickname "Little Sunroof". Despite the super punk look, I`m now relatively healthy, though a bit of a special needs bird.

I have some issues with my feet from an old injury or neurological problems. But ya know, my mom thinks I look adorable getting from one place to another. I am very persistent! AND, she put some low comfy perches in my specially-designed cage because she knew how much I missed perching. And, to make her happy, I began perching on them almost immediately. Here is a video of me several years ago, when I went to my first foster home and had "snowshoes" that the vet put on to help my feet straighten out. I`m getting physical therapy running around chasing sunflower seeds:

And here`s another, "silent movie" version:

I`m still a little ... uh, shy of those great big humans, but they are giving me all kinds of delicious food: pellets, veggies, and oh, my favorite BLUEBERRIES. And some banana, and HOT peppers. How do they know what I like?! They must be really tuned in.
