Parrot settles in

A rare yellow-shouldered Amazon parrot is settling into her new home.

The green and yellow-coloured female translocated to DZG from Twycross Zoo and is currently making friends with our resident male parrot.

Team Leader, Birds, Kellie Piper, said: “We introduced them through side-by-side enclosures.

“We had to let them get used to each other before we brought them together, but they quickly showed positive signs and within days they were right up against the mesh facing each other.”
