GREAT!!! But, if I were you, I would not put the kiwis in it because they become super mushy and everything will end up too watery.

Kiwi's generally get put in the nectar.The lories love them. They also like apples. Apples and pears float, Kiwi sinks, so they get stuff at the top and bottom of the bowl.

If I have extra lory fruit, it goes to to IRNs, Plumheads, and Blue Belly (And green cheeks when we have them). I always feed the Lorries first, so it works out.

Our little "Beep" got adopted by our vet. He's totally wild (kind of like my Irwin) so he needs someone who knows enough to leave him alone, and might actually be able to find him a parter at some point.

Oh, I don't know if I would have adopted out a bird which doesn't like people to somebody who doesn't have a potential mate for him. Loneliness is torture for all parrots but some species seem to suffer more than others and GCCs are one of them, in my opinion.

I guess she has several similar or similar-sized birds that she was going to try to introduce him to.

He is not a GCC. He is a red-capped parrot (also called a pileated parrot, I think?). I don't know if you'll find anyone with another one. That's the problem i'm having with finding a mate for my Irwin. There just aren't any hooded parrots in the country.

Hmmm, no, it's not a redcap or pileated parrot [this is a redcap: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pileated_parrot - they are almost the same size as an amazon and all green with bright red on the head]. I don't know what it is but it looks like some sort of GCC [or another pyrrhura] hybrid and those are super easy to get to bond with another pyrrhura even if it's not the same species.

Wrong side of the world. Its a Purpureicephlus spurius. There is actually a link to it in the article you posted because they are confused so often.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-capped_parrot

His color is so pale I thought he must be a female, but females look totally different. Then other sources say it's the juveniles that look different, and females look like subdued males.
