Liza (bonded with Basil)

My name is Liza, but my foster mom just keeps singing "little Liza Jane" to me. I like music, so that`s ok (she`s not a great singer, but she tries hard).

I was found as a stray because I`m a strong flyer and something in my past caused me to leave home. It wasn`t all that great out on my own, however (trust me, starving isn`t the best way to lost weight). I`m still a little bit shy of people, but they seem interesting and I`m very willing to get acquainted. I also get along well with other cockatiels, and I like living with the other two lady cockatiels I currently share a cage with.

But I`m ready for a home of my own. So....if you would like to be interviewed for the position of my new best friend, please contact my, my coordinator!

You can learn more about me and my buddy Basil in this video feature from Mickaboo`s virtual adoption fair:
In nature, cockatiels live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single cockatiel to a household if there is already at least one cockatiel living there. Otherwise, cockatiels must be adopted in groups of two or more.
