Hatch date 02/20/09
Charlie is a 12-year-old male Hoffman Conure (a rare species!).
He is a SPECIAL NEEDS bird as he has a chronic medical condition that will require lifelong treatment. He will only be adopted out to someone who is committed to and capable of continuing his medical care.
Charlie has a respiratory condition and x-rays show white areas on his lungs
He goes to the vet every 3 months for a routine checkup and periodically requires blood work
He is fully flighted and opts to fly away from situations he does not like or if spooked.
He loves nuts but has recently turned away from sunflower seeds.
He does not step up on your hand very well, so it is best to stick perch him and
He is a true shoulder bird and can hang there all day.
Charlie does not speak, but he can be noisy in the morning.
He puts himself to bed in his hammock once the sun goes down and usually does not like being disturbed (he needs his beauty rest).
In his two previous homes before coming into foster care, he developed a strong attachment to one individual with whom he was very sweet and affectionate but acted aggressively toward other family members.
Charlie would be a fantastic bird for a single person who can develop a strong bond with him or for a family or couple that is willing to be patient and work on intentional socialization and training.
Charlie is currently being fostered in Pine Hill, NJ, and will only be adopted to a forever home within driving distance.
Charlie will require at least three visits to the foster home prior to adoption.
We do not ship our birds.
For the Love of Birds is a network of dedicated foster homes across NJ and Philadelphia and only approved
applicants are allowed to make visits to our adoptable birds.
