~ Astra ~

Sunday, February 15, 2004
Astra is a five year old, female European Starling that came to live with us while I was rehabbing in Oregon. She was also an unreleasable, imprinted bird that was given to me by another rehabber. Astra is very sweet, though not bonded to me in the way Pipin is. She is missing several of her toes due to them being bitten off by another bird, a quaker parrot, Elmo.

She also has a large vocabulary of words and whistles and is very close to Joseph, the conure, who has attempted to solict her on more than one ocasion. She lives in the same enclosure as Pipin.
