About Tico:

Tico was brought to The Landing Zone Parrot Sanctuary, inc. in September 2011. His owner, who found us through our website, had moved here from Northern California and no longer had time to care for Tico.

Tico is a very quiet and calm parrot with occasional outbusts of energetic chattering. Tico climbs around his cage and plays with his favorite hanging toy. Tico loves to have his neck scratched, but is very perticular about who is allowed to touch him.

Tico shows dominance and tries to bite occasionally at feeding, he is a good bird, but territorial.

Tico's life could benefit greatly from sponsorship; new toys and enriching activities such as forraging would help Tico cope with cage life until the sanctuary is built.
