Hi all - I just had to share my exciting news (and where better to share than Birdboard.com?!) that as of this past Sunday, Rio is officially part of my family! I adopted him and finished filling out the paperwork on Sunday. I've been fostering Rio for several months now, so he probably doesn't know the difference, but I'm thrilled!
I haven't posted a whole lot on this forum. So here's a little bit of info on Rio. He's a male Yellow-Shouldered amazon who just turned 5 years old this past June. Prior to being turned into the parrot refuge I volunteer at, he'd been hand-raised by the man who turned him in.
He's a sweetheart and I totally fell in love with him! Rio's not too impressed with his new, larger cage, so I'm slowly transitioning him over to it. I just ordered a big order of toys and perches, so that should make his new cage a bit more desirable.
Any other Yellow-Shoulders on this forum? Would love to trade stories :-)
Here's a few pictures of Rio...

Moe - She's a beautiful white-faced cockatiel. I've had her since 1996 when someone abandoned her at the pet store I worked at. LOVES head scratches / HATES to be touched anywhere on her body other than her head!
Scooby - He's a Meyer's parrot and quite the character. He loves head and 'chin' rubs. He doesn't play with traditional toys, but does enjoy chewing up phone books, boxes and cardboard books.
Rio - He's a Yellow-shouldered amazon. I'm currently fostering this little darling. I am NOT an amazon person, but just fell in love with this little guy. He's lots of fun to watch and interact with. He's also extremely quiet.
What other type of pets do you own?
