Arthur is a (suspected female) Yellow-nape Amazon who was relinquished following owner of 50 years passed leaving no caretaker. Arthur had been relegated to a small cage for at least 13 years; she shows fear response to hands – likely the result of lack of handling for so long. However, Arthur is clearly extremely people oriented, likes to join in the conversation and has a wide vocabulary with clear speech. She has already learned that head scratches are wonderful and is now cautiously approaching hands for small treats. Arthur’s owner of 50 years was a woman and she initially seemed more willing to interact with women over men.

 

However, on settling into her foster home she is now more willing to interact with her foster “Dad”. Results of her intake well bird exam are pending.
