Charlie was an import that was used as a breeder until his mate passed away, charlie was then sold and later retured to the breeder because charlie was found to be blind. No one knew because his mate was his "eyes." He was given to me by a woman who could no longer keep him. Even though he is blind and "untouchable" I still love him. He has a very gentle soul and I am honored to give him a wonderful home. Even though he is blind he still plays with toys and steps up onto a perch to come out and sit on his playstand to preen and stretch his wings. Charlie has yet to make any noise since he has come to stay with us (except for growling at the vet) I hope that he and sammy can become friends of some sort and charlie will find comfort in sammys chatter. =).

Hi! My name is Charlie

I am a Timneh African Grey from St. Marys, GA.

Charlie Bird

55 years old   M

Timneh African Grey

Nutra-berries, beak appetite, and grapes. (among others.)

He loves to hang ou on his rope perch and on his play stand.

Backyard breeders who are only in it for the money. =(

That she loves me for who I am even though I am "handicap" and don't let her touch me. And that she is never stingy on the treats. =)

Charlie loves to dunk all of his food in his water bowl so I have to change it at least four times a day. =).

"For me, the sight of a parrot living alone, living inside a cage, deprived of flight, miserably bored, breaks my heart. And the parrot's too perhaps"
My favorite quote from such an amazing woman Dr. Jane Goodall

That's very kind of you to open your heart and home for a disabled bird. especially since you can't handle him! That says a lot about the kind of person you are...I also agree with your peeve!

Come visit me, Sirona, Trance & Frankie.

  Hello Charlie!
Wow! I cannot believe you are almost 50 years old. That is amazing! It is even more amazing that you found such a wonderful mommy! I am so happy that you found a good mommy who takes good care of you and gives you good food and even lets you have play time. I think though that your mom is trying to trick you by feeding you grapes. You really need to try blueberries. They are much better. Sorry, I don't really like grapes except for throwing. You still should try those blueberries. Anyway, here is a vote for an amazing birdie with an amazing mommy.

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.
