My new Lory
by Tara Mott

I recently got a lory that was in a bad environment. The lory was confined in a home with over 100 birds and animal took them b/c of complaints. That person was a hoarder. I have no idea of what issues this bird as been in.
SHe seems to be happy she talks a lot and eats well. She will take feed from me and I talk to her but I was just wondering how long and different techinques I can try to get her comfortable enough to let me hold her. She is very cautious when I am around and will jump around the cage if I try when I have no food in hand. What can I try?
