Baby is a 13-year-old red crowned amazon, who became paralyzed after he fell off his perch last year.
He had been totally paralyzed but most of his movement has returned with the exception of his being able to grip his feet. When he sits with his feet pointing outwards, he looks so cute.
Baby spends most of his time in his padded "basket", inching his way around by grasping the edge with his beak. Baby’s owner loves him very much, but felt he needed more specialized care. Since I had previously owned a paralyzed bird, I felt I had the expertise to take good care of this precious bird and was very honored when his "Mom" entrusted his care to me.
