The African Grey Parrot is not grey all over but has a bright red tail which is used in courtship displays.
At the Park you can see ‘Horace & Hilary’, who were placed with us by the RSPCA after being removed from a home where they were kept in very poor conditions.
Another African Grey at the Park called Peta, came here after her owner died. His wife had found it difficult to cope as Peta had bonded with her husband and, as parrots can do when stressed, she started to pluck her feathers. She has had some regrowth, flies well, but the feather growth on her chest is permanently damaged.
