Meet My Parrot - Harley The Eclectus

Published on Friday, 20th March 2020
Filed under Meet My Parrot
For this month’s Meet My Parrot article we’re meeting the lovely Harley the Eclectus. Harley lives with his owner Helen Charnley.
 
Harley is a 5 year old Eclectus and he was born in 2014.

 
 
He lives with Elvis, a male Eclectus, three female Eclectus, Cindor, Ruby and Georgia and Tiki, a Senegal Parrot.
 
He is unusual as he has blue feathers on his chin so we have nicknamed him Blue Beard.
 
His favourite place to sit is on the Java tree in the window, watching the world go by and whistling at people going past. He loves visitors and attention and shows off.
 
He wakes up with a woo woo and waits for his breakfast of mixed chop with sprouted seeds. He has a small amount of fruit and loves to steal bits of my banana. He also eats a small amount of seed with no peanuts or sunflower seeds in it. Treats he loves are almonds, pistachios and crunchy veg sticks.
 
He is more of a thinker than a player but he does like foraging toys, whether homemade or bought and loves toys that rattle and he can bang about and throw them out of his cage.

 
 
Harley is pretty independent but will spend time with you and sleep on you. He also likes to be involved in what you are doing and many a time you will turn round and there will be a big orange beak looking at you.
 
He can mimic and speak quite a bit. He likes to mimic you coughing and ask you what you are doing. He blows raspberries, and call Tiki Bird, along with other phrases.
 
He whistles tunes a lot and I’m sure he makes some up.
