Sponsor Nigel for as little as $1 a month
Nigel is another of our red-nape amazon parrots that arrived at Rescue Center Costa Rica in the August of 2020. He was rescued from a family home where they were keeping her illegally as a family pet. His diet was wrong and he had no consistent medical care. His cage was so very small it was impossible for him to spread his wings properly and as a result, never learned to fly. It’s very sad when we hear stories of these beautiful birds who are kept in small cages and never allowed to do what makes them most happy. The good news? He’s so very friendly with humans and always greets our volunteers with plenty of noise and funny faces when they feed him. Surprisingly, he can speak many words and makes cute laughing noises that almost sound humanlike. Watch the video below and you can see how much he likes his new house and you will hear some of his favorite noises.
Please consider sponsoring Nigel to secure his/her food, medicine, and love!
