Meet

Gawain

Hello, what’s up? I’m Gawain, and I enjoy being the big bird on campus wherever I am. Sometimes I take a little time to warm up to someone new, but once I’m comfortable I love cuddling and preening with my new best friend. I especially love it if they have lovely face hairs for me to preen! I’m also pretty
tolerant of other birds, just so long as they don’t get up in my grill. I’m looking for a home where I can have lots of personal time with my humans, or a home where there’s lots of other bird friends to play with. I may
be middle-aged, but I’m still full of energy and I enjoy chatting and playing!

Hope to meet you soon!
