Monty is a red-headed Amazon parrot who was adopted by his current owner from Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary in Vancouver in April 2018. Before his journey to Greyhaven, Monty lived at the World Parrot Refuge on Vancouver Island during its collapse into decrepitude (See story: Largest animal rescue in Canadian history). Monty has been through untold struggle and to this day is a fragile bird hyper-sensitive to his surroundings. Now in his late 20s, Monty is starting to repair his trust in others and regain his youthful exuberance and self-confidence.
