Journey is this beautiful rescued blue-and-gold macaw. He's believed to be a 15-year-old male, and is learning how to talk. This mostly quiet bird is slowly learning to trust people again, and his cage remains his safe zone. Journey loves to shred paper, is getting used to toys, and appears to like dogs. He's meant for an experienced and patient adopter who craves the special bond earned when conquering life-saving challenges. Learn more about Journey and dozens more adoptables during a pet fashion show Saturday (Oct. 7) at the "Fashion, Feathers & Fur" charity event at the Plant City Armory. It's a Mardi Gras party, so you can even dress up. Visit Florida ParrotRescue.org or call (813) 754-PETS. Find them on Facebook FLParrotRescue.
