Comments: She is an exceptionally sweet bird. Her bond with owner is very strong, but, given circumstances, if recovered by a stranger she would likely be cooperative and respond. She knows what SEVERAL words mean, including "PEANUT," "WATER," "TEA," and "CHEERIOS." She generally would rather drink water from a faucet given the choice. Will drink warm tea from a coffee/tea cup, it is a treat for her! Cheerios and the occasional peanut were also big treats. Loves to be out of her cage on someone's shoulder, arm, lap, etc. She would more likely answer to her "Magnet" name in the form of three syllables, like "Mag-a-net." Magnet has pink/flesh-colored feet.
