Rajah, Alexandrine Parakeet (parrot) with Daisy 2
Rajah is a 19-year-old male Alexandrine Parakeet (or Parrot) who came to us in 2009 from the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society. These gentle, smart birds are from the Indian Subcontinent where they are listed as “near threatened.”
In the wild, they eat buds, fruits, nuts and seeds just as Rajah does here! He has a sweet and calm demeanor and supervises the little bird room. Named after Alexander the Great, whom, it is believed, kept one as a pet.
