Introducing Luna Mexican Red heded Amazon

Introducing Luna.


I donít want to make a long post, I usualy try to avoid that but it will be difficult this time.

Took a 3-hour drive down to San Diego and met up with Beatrice C and Mr C. Got introduced to there beautiful flock and the rescue bird Luna (formerly known as Jelly bean).
We (my son and I) stayed about 1 Ĺ hours letting Luna get use to us and see how she reacted to our presence. Luna was relaxed with us from the git go, standing on one foot, taking food from our hands.
Near the end of our stay when I was trying to make the go for it/better not decision Luna walked over and started to groom/nibble at my sonís had and fingers. That made up my mind so our trip back had one more intelligent creature than when we went down.

Thanks to Beatrice C generosity we came back loaded with birdie bread (something we have not tried before) and the chop that Luna is use to.
We had some trouble getting her out of the transport cage and into her new cage. In the end we had to towel her but she did come very close to stepping up using the handle of a wooden spoon.

Bingo was (and is) very interested in his new neighbour. Bingo also liked the birdie bread and I think he may find the type of pellets Luna eats to be more acceptable that what I have been giving him.



The biggest issue and potential problem is Bella. She was doing her poofy bird imitation could not be handled at all. Bella looks to be her normal self this morning. Worse comes to worse I can move the cages around so she is not as close as she is now.

I have only hit the high points and I will be sure to make regular updates as she integrates into our lives.
