GIZMO: Gizmo came to Parrot Haven after his secondary owner came to the realization that he wasn’t equipped to handle such a large bird. The owner had taken Gizmo in as payment for an automobile repair. With dogs as his owners’ primary pets, Gizmo was exiled to a bedroom and was not happy at all. Gizmo can be particular with who he shares affection. Vicki was initially going to adopt Gizmo, but Gizmo decided that Vicki would make a better meal, always running after her when she comes over to visit. Gizmo was recently featured in a Jet Blue commercial in the summer of 2013, though it hasn’t aired yet. He was the perfect bird on the set. So obedient and sitting perfectly still. Let’s hope his talents will keep some donations coming in.
