Rare find at the Humane Society

Posted By on Fri, Jan 8, 2010 at 4:40 PM

It's not every day you come across the shockingly vibrant eclectus parrot. Especially one at the Humane Society. According to his bio, "Bernie" was found abandoned in a hotel room but seems quite friendly and tame.

Bernie's up for adoption, and at $500, he's a good deal for any parrot (an eclectus can run between $800-$1,800, without a cage). Sweet as they can be, parrots are a huge responsibility. As someone who grew up with a cockatoo, my patience has been tested a hundred times over but the rewards are well worth it.

But even if a parrot's not your thing, don't forget all the animals at the Humane Society waiting for good homes.
