Bleu is a young, male Indian Ringneck. He has a lot of personality and is just starting to open up to us here at MDPR. Bleu has made himself at home here, flirting with our other Ringneck Cricket. Bleu makes chirping and clicking sounds when he feels content and will sometimes even dance for you. Bleu will thrive in a home where he is the only bird.
