Luna has been in and out of foster homes for over a year. Luna
has the unpredictable amazon mood swings. Luna's owner
always thought she was a female. She is so beautiful. In
perfect feather. After severely biting two of her last "foster
parents." Luna was placed in Parrot Haven with the
recommendation that she be placed in a breeding program.
One of our members wanted to take Luna, but only as a
companion for his amazon, with no breeding intent in mind,
but feeling that his male would not get along with another male.
Luna was sexed. Lo and behold, Luna is a male. I was going
to foster Luna with a behaviorist and bought him to the
September meeting. One of our board members, Sophie,
reminded me that she has wanted Luna for the past year and took him home. I had completely forgotten Sophie's request but was more than happy to place Luna with Sophie. (Just a reminder of the importance of filing your adoption applications with Rey. There are so many members and so many birds, that it is requested to please keep current with PFC , in case your circumstances have changed or you have another species of adoption in mind.) Luna's repeatedly says "Hello, Loon," so Sophie has appropriately renamed him Looney.
Sophie is doing wonders with Luna, who has adjusted well to her new situation. Once Sophie takes a bird, it has a permanent home with members of her flock.
