The Norwegian Blue is incredibly rare and you are unlikely to find it in captivity. However, if you do happen upon one, after you admire it's beautiful plumage, there are some species quirks of which you need to be aware:
 

  • May spend an excessive amount of time pining for the fjords.
  • Extremely aggressive and for safety purposes may need to be nailed to the perch.
  • Spends an inordinate amount of time on its back.
  • May get shagged out after a long squawk.
  • Unlikely to voom even if you put 4,000 volts through it.

     

One of the last Norwegian Blues known in captivity:

Wait, the Norwegian Blue Parrot actually exists? I thought it was just a Monty Python sketch! :P
