About Moriarty

Hatch Date :  Best Estimate 2013


Moriarty (Arty) is Approx. 8 year old , suspected Male , Senegal 
Very quiet now that he is in a foster home with other birds .

He seems to truly enjoy having other birds around , even though he is not 
buddy buddy with any of them .

He came from a home where he was the only bird, and the owner said 
he was very loud daily , actually referred to him as a screamer :( 

Since being in foster home(around other birds) we are not seeing this behavior at all .

He is very hand shy, (not hand tame)  and is NOT going to be a shoulder (Velcro) bird unless 
someone has the time and patience to work hard with him and his trust issues . 

He is however perch trained , and will step up and let you move him around on it. 

He enjoys coming out of his cage (top) , hanging with other like sized birds , and 
makes the sweetest chirping noises. 
We have not heard him speak , and not sure if he knows any actual words. 

He will need to go to a home with other like sized birds, to help encourage this 
new found flock fondness. 

He can't fly properly , and we are not sure if this is due to a previous injury , or if 
he just never learned how to do it . 
He is however FAST when he is on the floor , lol ;) 

Not an aggressive bone in his body , but if grabbed , he will give you a good hard pinch.

Arty is being fostered in Leonard, NJ and will only be adopted to a forever home within driving distance, we do not ship our birds.
For the Love of Birds is a group of dedicated foster homes throughout NJ and Eastern PA - we do not have a central location.
As Arty are living in a volunteer's home, we only allow approved applicants to make visits.
If interested in adopting Blue and Berry please visit our website ftlob.rescuegroups.org to read our adoption policies & procedures and to complete an adoption application.
