Packer is a roughly 30 year old assumed male Senegal parrot. He arrived to our sanctuary in May of 2023. Packer lived with a male Pionus parrot who he is not bonded with.
Packer is looking for a home where he can rule the roost. He has been known to bite at times, so it is recommended he goes to a home without small children. He does love to be pet and handled, but will bite at times with minimal warning. He is looking for a nice, quiet home where he can enjoy a sunny window and some music during breakfast time, then take a snooze on your shoulder.
