A Rogue's Gallery: Parrot Portraits
Princess Tara, Hyacinth Macaw, The Zen Parrot
Princess Tara really is a princess! Her parents are a Duke and a Duchess.
Roxanne, Greenwing Macaw, Diva Parrot
Roxanne is named for the song, and the name fits her perfectly!
Roxanne is our first parrot and does not believe she is a parrot. She believes she's a 5 year old girl.
Bubba Boy, Blue and Gold Macaw, Alpha Parrot
Bubba Boy is actually a girl. She rules over the flock. Of all the parrots Bubba Boy is most proud of her spectacular wings, which she'll show off to anyone interested.
Most appropriate her portrait showcases her wings!
Kid Kadra, Goffin's Cockatoo, Acrobat of Acrobats
Kid Kadra can fly circles around the other parrots, and he knows it!
He loves harassing the other parrots when they're not expecting it.
Arua, Congo African Grey, Intellect
Arua is our most prolific talker and sound maker.
Mr. Cracker, Ruby Macaw (Greenwing / Scarlet Mix)
Mr. Cracker may very well be a wild caught macaw, believed to be about 45 years old.
Tillie, Timneh African Grey
Our smallest parrot, and a real cutie! Between the two of them, Arua and Tillie have an incredible repertoire of sound effects!
Chromo, Blue and Gold Macaw
Chromo is our current foster parrot, temporarily between homes.
