Juno came into Phoenix Landing in October of this year. He was technically a “lost bird.” A lovely couple rescued him and searched for his owner to no avail. This couple was retired and traveled a lot. They were not prepared to make a long term commitment to their new companion so they called Phoenix Landing for help.
The vet believes Juno to be at least two years old but probably not much older. Juno has been a delight for his foster home. He adapted very quickly to the other birds in the home. He is an active guy and plays readily with all new toys that are given to him. He is also extremely fond of showers and likes to get completely soaked.
The best thing about him is his zest for food – and for the right types of foods. His foster home has learned that Ekkie’s have very specific diet needs. This includes NO formulated foods, not even the highest grade of organic pellets. He currently eats veggies, fruits, nuts and selected seed mixes, eggs, limited grains (mostly quinoa), and grain free birdie breads. His foster family has gone to some effort to learn about the needs of his species. He has made it easy by liking all of the foods he should eat!
Do you have room in your home for this active boy? Can you continue giving him the nutrition that he needs to stay healthy? He is one gorgeous sweet boy looking for his next long term landing.

I do have room in my home for Juno. I have 5 cockatiels (Gizmo, Belle, Wiley, Cookie and MiniBelle). They have their own closed room (adjacent to my home office) with windows, a big 42 x 36 x 32 inches cage and plenty of playpen space.
It would be a breeze to add a big cage I have in reserve and get specific toys and accommodations for an eclectus. Learning how to take care of an Eclectus would be a joy and I have access to plenty of first hand information at my bird club.
Their diet is varied as it can be; seeds, fruits, eggs, home made bread, veggies and a little bit a cooked poultry from time to time.
I would be delighted to have Juno in my family.
Let me know how PL select adoptive families. I am ready to answer any question you may have.
Thank you and keep up the awesome work.
