Gandalf is a gentle, 6 or 7 year old female whiteface pearly pied. She comes from a loving home, that has owned and cared for her all her life. She was fed a healthy diet of Harrisons pellets with veggies and some seeds, and even started on clicker-training.

Unfortunately, Gandalf`s owner is suffering from health complications which forced her to surrender her beloved pet. Gandalf can be a bit shy about stepping onto hands, especially if she doesn`t know you, but she`s very polite with her beak. She enjoys riding on shoulders, and once she gets to know you will walk up to your hands and put her head down. Just don`t dream of offering your hand for a scritch of your own accord or she`ll scold you for your audacity! She will happily submit to cuddles for ages, as long as it was her idea first. She is also very quiet, and unlike some other birds, will happily allow you to sleep in without fussing or greeting the dawn.

Gandalf will make a great companion for anyone lucky enough to adopt this sweet-natured bird.
