Abernethy was brought to T.L.Z.P.S. by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services after being seized at the Mexican-American border. Abernethy was named after the officer who brought the frightened parrot into T.L.Z.P.S.'s care. Abernethy's tail feathers had been cut so short he at first looked as if he had a stub tail. We were told he had been stuffed into a small handbag.
After a few months at the sanctuary, scared little Abernethy has made a complete turn around! We have him placed in a room with other Amazons next to a male Amazon, Tico and female Yellow Crowned Amazon named Cricket. Abernethy has picked up a couple of words and mimics Cricket's notes beautifully. We are working on familiarizing Abernethy with humans. Aber will stand on the edge of an opened cage and will come up to one's hand in a friendly manner during feeding times, but will not yet allow the staff to pet or pick him up.
