Sauron is a male 13 year old blue and gold macaw. He is a very sweet bird once out of his cage. Sauron loves his head scritches and will love you even more if you're willing to help with those pesky pin feathers.
Sauron did arrive to us with a plucked torso, but is able to live a happy and normal life. Plucking can occur for a number of reasons: poor nutrition, lack of enrichment, or stress/illness. He has not plucked since being with us, but his feathers will likely not grow back at this point.
We think he's perfect just the way he is! Come say hi and soak up some attention from Sauron. (He's a foody, so if you bring some unsalted nuts, its bound to be love at first sight!)

*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*
