Ozzy (Red-sided Eclectus)

Get to know Ozzy

Ozzy was hatched on August 10th, 2015 and is a male red-sided eclectus. Ozzy’s rehoming story is a little complicated but when I saw him I knew I had to take him home for multiple reasons. I went up to see him with Elmo, to see if they’d get along, and the next day I brought him home. He was only 2 when I got him so he was pretty friendly but very out of shape… He couldn’t fly at all (even though he was fully flighted) and wasn’t great at perching or doing anything that required any strength or balance. He was very open to learning new things and was quickly trained wear an Aviator Harness and Avian Fashions hoodie.

He’s the baby of the flock and knows it! His big eyes and cute “hi Ozzy” voice makes anyone want to pick him up and give him all the attention in the world. He charms everyone who meets him on walks and makes sure to show off his candy corn beak while asking everyone for “kisses!”. He’s been such a wonderful addition to the LifeWithParrots flock and I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to provide a forever home for him after everything he’s been though.
