Poppy is a rescue bird. He came to my attention from a friend at a pet store. I was his third owner at 4 months old. He suffered a lot from both a bad diet (seeds!?), and hand abuse.His separation anxiety was severe and he proved it by screaming every time I left his line of sight (7 months). He is amazing now; healthy and very happy..

Hi! My name is Poppy

I am a Lory from Calgary, AB.

Mom's treasure, poppy-baby

11 years old   M

Lory

Juice of any kind, apples, strawberries and grapes. Broccoli is really interesting.

Shower, kitchen sink, car or anywhere the action is. Don't leave me out!!!

Keychains, and being misted. Just recently learned he has a terror of mealworms (I'm with you on that one,buddy!)

I get lots of baths, and get to go with my mom in my travel cage to work and shopping trips. She is very patient with me, and cuddles me lots.

He is afraid of nothing, and tastes everything. That tongue goes everywhere! He calls both cats by name. And he is a major multi-tasker when it comes to playing with his toys!.

Taste it all!.

Hey poppy my name is Knuckles and I saw a message you sent to Skittles you made my mommy laugh when she said you were an addict. Mommy calls me a junkie cause I like junk food the problem is I never get all that I want she holds out. I wondered if there is a Bird union where we could complain?

Mommy says that you are just beautiful we love your colors. Your mommy says that you hate to be misted well I used to hate showers then my mom just the other day turned the shower thingy to a fine mist...Aaaahhhhhhh my favorite!

  Hi Poppy
Well, if my mommy saw a Lory like you...we would have a new flock mate as well. Lories are not that common here, and mom wanted a Red Lory for about 20 years before she actually saw one for sale here...and we surf the Parrot stores regularly, lol. A vote for you~~Summer

  Scream
Hi Poppy ~ Yes, my scream can be very piercing! But fortunately, I don't do it that often. Only when I want attention & not getting it. I have to take two different meds twice a day because I was diagnoised with a heart problem a couple of weeks before Christmas. Since I am so bad about getting medicine and the doctor not wanting me to get upset, mom mixes the med in some strawberry syrup - which I tell her is "good stuff"! No stress on me or mom~ :-)

Come visit me, Poco, Pico, Bindi - R.I.P. ♥ & Skittles - R.I.P. ♥.

  Another Lory
Hi Poppy, I am so glad you ended up with the "right" mom this time! I don't know why people try & feed SEEDS to us! I'm sorry you had to go through what you did, but I think you're now in your forever home. Are you a "dusky" lory? A vote for you. I live with cats too! I get to call them for dinner & treats. Also, I like your motto ~

  Hello Poppy, My mama wants to know about all parrots, so when she sees one she doesn't know she tries to find out about it. So you are a very energetic bird! Poirot is very energetic too, and makes me tired. I like to spend lots of time sitting quietly on a knee or on my swing. Talk to you soon, Pringle

  What a cute little guy. He is colored beautifully. I bet he knows he is handsome though. Lories are such smarty-pants! He sounds like a fun bird to have around. Merry Christmas Poppy!

What sort of lory is Poppy? I don't think I have ever seen his species before. He looks so alert in the photo.

Come visit me, Duchess Malachite Bratbird, Hal - Thank you for this honor! & Photon.

  Hi Poppy!
He's very beautiful. Just a word of caution. Grapes are high in iron and should be fed sparingly if at all to lories. www.the-oasis.org/articles/lory.php That site has some great information.
