Hello, I’m Jasper, I don’t know how old I am unfortunately. I’m an extremely handsome Orange Winged Amazon. I love hanging out with other birds and making friends with them. Here at my SH my friends are a B&G Macaw, a African Grey and a SH Cockatoo.
I don’t have a very good history but here goes….. I was used as a breeding bird and was in an aviary with a female. We had lots of babies hatch but when we stopped, our owner didn’t want us any more. We weren’t treated very nice and were given to a lovely lady who looked after us. Sadly my girlfriend died and it left me alone and quite bereft. I would love some company, whether it’s male or female I don’t care. I don’t want to breed any more and I’m happy with that. The lady couldn’t care for me any more as she was poorly so I came into the charity.
I love to sing for my food, nuts, fruit, flowers and for my friend (CAG) until we are let out of our cages so we can climb to the highest point of the Macaw’s cage and spend the day up there, then I’ve got the singing and Blue has the potty mouth.
I’ve got to say I love my showers and baths in my water bowl!
My SH Dad is very trying, I’ll go to him for a nut/fruit/seed/flower but definitely a nut. I know when it’s my turn for more training (if you can call it that) because I get wheeled to the middle of the room.
I don’t like them hand things coming towards me, all my SH Dad is wanting me to do is step up, but I don’t, he has even tried a stick and a funny clicking thing.
All I want is to get wheeled back over to my spot and go back to just sitting with my friends.
My favourite times of the day is this. Any types of seed, the seed I’m on is AS30 (no peanut/sunflower seed). I’ll eat all fruit, all veg both frozen/fresh except sweet potato. Flowers, nuts especially walnuts, seeded toast with coconut oil or palm oil, I’m not keen on them sprouted things though.
I’m not sure what to do with these things that’s hanging in my cage, I’m told they’re toys. I look at them and they’re pretty but I need to be encouraged to play. I do like a toilet roll tube stuffed with paper and nuts to forage in, and a cardboard box makes me happy and I play with something called a buffet ball and a foraging wheel.
I’m happy with other birds as would dearly love another friend. I’ve been so lonely since my lady friend died. At my SH Dad’s they’re large and smaller birds who are really nice to me. There’s dogs and cats live here and they don’t bother me when they sniff my cage and the cats just aren’t bothered at all by us. I don’t even mind hands in my cage when they feed me, and I haven’t bitten anyone but I think if they pushed me too hard to step up I might give a little bite.
I do think that in time I will step up and quite possibly accept head tickles but that will come in time. I don’t say anything but with my safe house Dads interaction I’m learning to wolf whistle at people when they pass the window outside.
I try my hardest to follow Blue in her cage when we have to go in the cages, he just knows I’m going to sneak in there. All I want to do is find a male or female partner and just plod away the days. An aviary would be my perfect dream with my friend/s.
If you think you can offer me what I need, then please fill out the application. Please make sure you can offer me all of this as I’m a little complex but in time I will give you your rewards for giving me a forever loving home.
