Here's Charlie! I posted him on Rehome Highway thinking someone from here would be interested in such a nice bird. The consensus on the thread is he's a Maximilian/Coral Billed hybrid.
Well, with just the teeny tiniest bit of encouragement, I adopted him. For over a decade, I've wanted a BH, but sometimes things happen for a reason. Right now, he's a little shy; he came over to get a walnut but wouldn't take it from my hand. Yesterday, he did take a carrot but not today.
So, I'm mainly keeping my distance, talking softly and blinking until he's comfortable. On the drive home, I knew we'd be great friends when he laughed at Howard Stern on the radio.
