Bird Of The Month

Meet Groucho – a Congo African Grey parrot!  Groucho turned out to be a girl after 15 years of being a boy ( a blood test is needed to determine sex in this species).  Groucho was hatched in 1992 as far as we know from her records. She came to her adoptive home when her second owner became ill and could no longer care for her.  African Grey parrots are known for being incredibly smart and great talkers and sound mimickers – although many other species have demonstrated the same capabilities.  Some African Grey parrots choose not to use human language to communicate so if having a “talking bird” is important to you, it is best to get an adult bird that has shown a willingness to talk. Groucho has been living happily with her “forever home” family since 2007 and has 2 other African Greys, 2 Amazons and a male Eclectus in her flock.
