Rascal

Senegal Parrot

Senegal parrots are about 23 centimetres (9.1 inches) long, weigh about 120 to 170 grams (4.2 to 6.0 ounces).[2] They have a relatively large head and beak for their overall size, and feathers form a short broad tail. Adults have a charcoal grey head, grey beak, bright yellow irises,[2] green back and throat, and yellow underparts and rump. The yellow and green areas on a Senegal parrot's front form a V-shape resembling a yellow vest worn over green. Young Juveniles have dark grey, almost black, irises, which change to light grey.

Rascal was placed in the sanctuary in February of 2020. He is an older Senegal Parrot (exact age is unknown) and is blind in both eyes. Rascal does great at eating and drinking on his own and has several toys that he loves to play with. He does get frightened and tries to bite when touched, but with training and time, hopefully, that will change.
