Tipper

Scarlet Macaw

Meet

Tipper

Tipper is a fun, active bird, who enjoys playing and hanging out with the humans. He should be named Loki because he is the mischief maker in his foster home. He takes a bit to trust, but once he does he loves to be around you. He nips to let you know he's not okay with something, so his forever home needs to be comfortable handling this large bird. He is ready to find a family that will provide lots of toys to chew up and fun foods to enjoy. He's just a big macaw looking for love.
