Reggie is a 16 year-old Yellow-Naped Amazon. He arrived to the sanctuary this August with a sun conure, Izzy, who he is not bonded to. They will be adopted out separately.
In his previous home, Reggie was said to enjoy being handled and loved interacting (from a distance) with his bird roommate. His owner did note that it took a long time for Reggie to warm up to her, but once he did, he enjoyed cuddles and tummy tickles. She also noted that he loves to play catch with a wiffle ball or other similar sized ball. How fun!
Reggie is a very food-motivated Amazon, so if you want to come meet him, bring a yummy vegetable with as a treat! As a young Amazon, he is easily overstimulated, and would do best with a calm and patient bird owner. Large bird experience is strongly preferred, but not required.

*Adoption fees are given once a bird is placed on hold and has been visited multiple times. Our fees vary based on age, health, handleability and length of time at our sanctuary, so our fees change regularly as each bird is re-assessed*
