All About Ozzy
In 2008, after their caregiver died, Ozzy, a Hybrid Macaw, came to Parrots First as a part of a bonded pair with Sharon, a Blue-and-gold Macaw who passed away in January 2016. Ozzy was very attached to Sharon, but is recovering well since her passing. Ozzy has proven to be very lovable and will most likely be ready for an adoptive home some time in the future.
Why Sponsor Ozzy?
Parrots First does not separate bonded pairs. It’s hard to rehome a full-grown Macaw, let alone two (and Sharon was a special needs bird). Ozzy will at some point most likely become adoptable now that he’s no longer part of a bonded pair, but until then, Parrots First wants to ensure that he recovers fully from his losing Sharon and is fully ready for adoption.
Ozzy’s Favorite Things
Ozzy is proving to be a truly loveable bird who is learning to interact well with humans. He loves to destroy Birdie Bagels and can reduce several to dust in a very short time. He also plows through fresh-cut wood like a wood chipper.
