We have a Red Lory. It is a beautiful bird, but we simply cannot keep him.
We adopted him a year ago, and it was meant to be temporary but didn't work out that way.
He is lovable, tame and has an excellent disposition. He talks but doesn't have a huge vocabulary. The potential is there, though. I accidentally taught him to say "Hey, baby," and he caught on in only a few days. He says it a lot now.
We don't really have room for him, and since we didn't expect him to be a permanent fixture in our family, it was okay. Now that it's been a year, we are (mostly) ready to have him go to a home that would be more suitable for him.
His name is Valentine, and he is probably 8 years old. These birds, as far as I know, live into their 20s and beyond. If you are at all interested in adopting Valentine-- for free-- then email me. Feel free to pass this info on if you know someone who is looking for a good companion pet.
