Meet Maggie

Hello. My name is Maggie, and I am an approximately 32 or 33-year-old female Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot - the consummate lady, I don’t like being asked about my age. Originally a “Pet Shop bird” I eventually went home when the shop owner retired and lived with her until she died. My human sister then became my caretaker, but I just never really settled in. I was surrendered to FPR to find me my forever home.

I am very social, and I am a great talker - “Hello” “Goodbye” “Okay” “Alright” are some of my favorites and I won’t hesitate to politely clear my throat “Ahem Ahem” to get your attention. I am surprisingly quiet and docile for a larger parrot, but I am skittish around strangers and do not like to be held or handled. Maybe due to a lack of out-of-cage time, I am not hand trained and I don't step up readily. I will step onto a perch reluctantly but will let you know I prefer to stay in or on my cage. My foster parents are working with me on this.

A voracious eater with a penchant for “junk food”, when I came into rescue, I was on a diet of peanuts, hotdogs, and grapes and was very overweight. With time, I have been transitioned to a healthy diet of Zupreem Fruitblend Pellets and perhaps more impressively CHOP! Small treats of slivered almonds are appreciated along with a little apple or banana. I am looking beautiful, trimming down and my plumage is looking healthier too!

I am unbothered by dogs and seem to get a kick out of throwing the occasional pellet out so my foster brother can come and eat it from under the cage!

For fun, I like splashing water around and seeing how far I can get it from my bowl! “Peekaboo” at bedtime is a lot of fun and of course wooden toys for chewing are a real favorite.

I would love to meet you and have a chat. In time, I like foot rubs and little head scratches thru the cage. But I will require your patience with that.
Looking for an easy-going and relatively low-maintenance large parrot? I am YOUR GIRL!

Maggie would love a "Welcome to Foster" gift. You can view her wishlist here:
