New Girl….a.k.a… Lola….

Please accept my apologies for not providing more progress reports on the New Girl. As you can see, she has been re-named. As the song goes, “Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl”…. (Thanks Barry Manilow and the Copa Cabana). She is a funny girl and does seem to enjoy the spotlight, the music and dancing.  Her personality has blossomed as she has continued to improve. She is funny, often bossy (with the other birds), and entertaining. If you ask her a question she shakes her head yes rather rapidly… (even if yes is not the best answer, which means you must ask appropriately).

Her feathers are continually coming in and it is so rewarding to see her getting better.

Here is her “before”…

Ms Lola in early March when she first arrived…. a sad looking African Grey…













….. and the ‘after’ taken today, 06.02.12….


She still has a way to go, but is SO much better!













(She was dancing when I took this shot…) She’s a happy little girl…

So cute!

The powder that is classic on a Grey, which was greatly lacking, has also begun to reappear. … So what do you think?

    Having two adopted african greys myself, I’m passionate about the subject and I’m writing a small article about parrots with feather problems… Can I please use your Ms Lola’s pic? 🙂

      Tell me more about the article you are writing. Will it be published? If so, in what publication?

        As all photos and information on this blog are protected, I would decline the use of Ms Lola’s photo in any publications/website, etc. I thank you so much.
