Hi, I`m Fletch, an older Senegal Parrot who needs a safe and stable environment. I had lived in one home for most of my life, but my caretaker was no longer able to provide the companionship I`m used to.

Before we get into this much further, I should tell you that everybody thinks that I`m a female and nobody knows how I got the name, "Fletch." I`m pretty sure that whoever takes me as their forever bird will consider renaming me, which is fine with me.

Mickaboo`s avian veterinarian says that my blood panels came back fine, which means that I don`t seem to have any infection and my organs seem to be working fine. I`m a little bit underweight, so my foster dad has been getting me acclimated to healthy foods and weighing me every morning. He tells me how good I am for having gained 7 grams, but all I`m doing is eating!

I`m very tame, friendly, and easy to handle if you don`t come at me too quickly. In foster care, I`ve learned to step up and step down, and -- get this -- step onto a scale. I get a special treat for the latter. I like to whistle, kiss, purr, click, and I say, "C`mere!" and "Pretty Bird!" I like to look out the window and I stand up tall and flap my wings for passing hummingbirds. Sometimes they`ll stop and visit with me!

I will do best in a loving household where I can look out the window and people will give me a lot of care and respect. Let Mickaboo know if you`d like me to be part of your family.
