What other birds do we have?  Sometimes we are too busy to update this site, 
so give us a call at 816-356-4700. 

If we don't have the bird you are looking for, be sure to check with Beak N Wings bird club at to see what birds they have available.

"Her name is Lola, she was a show bird...."  ​Lola the 18 year old Blue and Gold was a performing bird at the Rainforest Cafe years ago, but needs a new home now that her owner has moved and can't keep her.  She is shy about meeting new people, but once she gets used to you she will talk, give kisses, allow you to pet her, and maybe even do a trick or two.  Her feather plucking is caused by a combination of issues, some of which we are attempting to resolve, some will require time and patience, but we can't guarantee her feathers will grow back.  Adoption fee for Lola is $400

Green Wing Macaw Jules was born around 1972, and has been plucking for about six years.  We think he is a boy, and he sometimes has a bossy male attitude.  He likes to dance, answer the phone, talk, and sometimes get head scratches.  Are you bossy enough to handle this big bossy bird?  Adoption fee $300

Barney is a really sweet guy who came to us because he had a chronic sinus infection that took months of treatment to clear up. Born in 1981, he still enjoys getting head scratches and is usually good about stepping up and being held. If you are ready for a super-sized bird, call or email us about Barney. Adoption fee for Barney is $400

GoDiva came to us almost completely naked, so her name was Godiva. Because of her attitude, we tended to call her Diva, so we just changed her name to GoDiva. After months of treatment, we have cured her of the infections that caused her to mutilate her feet until she lost a toe, and her feathers are growing in so she now has wings and a tail. We will only adopt her out to someone who lives nearby in case her self-mutilation flares up again (which we don't expect) and she requires more treatment (at our expense). She was handfed as a baby, but was set up for breeding and wasn't handled for years, so she will take patience to tame her down again.  Adoption fee $250


Shenanigan the Senegal was born in 1993 and is a real sweetheart with people she likes. When the teenager got tired of feeding her she came to us. If you are looking for a small parrot that isn't loud, Shenanigan might be the bird for you.  Adoption fee for this bird is $50


Garfield the Orange Wing Amazon came to us from a dog and cat shelter that was having trouble finding just the right home for her. She was born in 1998 and has laid a couple of eggs so we know she is a girl! She seems to prefer men and will rarely step up for a woman. She needs to stay on a healthy diet to keep her cholesterol under control.  Adoption fee $250  This bird is sponsored by Cathryn Miller!


Peachy is a Lutino Peachface Lovebird born in August, 2014, and Mango is the green one.  They and two siblings came to us because the owners were tired of their pair having babies they had to care for. We hope they listened to our advice and stopped letting the parents make more unwanted babies! They are used to being together and hope to stay together in a new home. They may be tame if you work with them.  Adoption fee $30 each


We were adopted!


Only occasionally available, and only to existing clients of Burge Bird Services (meaning we have treated a bird for you in our veterinary clinic within the last 2 years).  Contact us for availability.

Marty the male Zebra Finch born in 2012 is a companion to Marigold the budgie. We would love to see them stay together unless they go to live with other birds of their own species that they get along with. (We couldn't get Marty to hold still for a photo, so the picture shows two other male Zebra finches.) Adoption fee for this bird is $5 each

Pookie is a crested Society Finch born in 2013. We don't know how old he/she is exactly, whether Pookie is a boy or girl, or why he was surrendered to our rescue, but we know he is cute with those little fluffy head feathers!

Brownie is a female canary who is at least 5 years old. She seems to get along well with other birds and would be a nice friend for your lonely canary or finch.  Adoption fee $10

Walnut (Wallie), Pecan (Peckie), Filbert (Phil), Hazelnut (Hazel), Pistachio (Penny), Almond (Allie-adopted) all sponsored by Paula Rossow
