A couple weeks ago, I visited the Northwest Parrots Fund in Seattle, WA to photograph a few of their wonderful parrots. I had a great time, and I was amazed by each parrot’s unique and fun personality. Click HERE to view last week’s blog post about that experience that includes a slideshow of images.
Michael Ostrogorsky, Ph.D, is the founder and director of the Northwest Parrots Fund. He contacted me a little bit ago about one of their parrots who is ready for adoption. I wanted to take this opportunity to blog about Sevita and get the word out that she is in need of a new home.
Sevita, who you see in the picture to the right, is an 8 year old Congo African Grey parrot. She has lived with her current owner, or “parront,” for the past 7 years. Sevita’s parront feels that she can no longer give Sevita the attention and care she needs anymore.
Sevita is in good health and her wings are clipped. She has her own perch, cage, and a plethora of toys. Sevita has a distinct preference for women and has always been the only pet in her household.
According to the Northwest Parrots Fund website, African Gray’s are not starter parrots and it’s important that owners have prior parrot experience. African Gray’s also have a long life expectancy of over 50 years.
If you are interested in adopting Sevita or just finding out more information, head on over to her adoption page on the Northwest Parrots Fund by clicking HERE.
