If we don't have the bird you are looking for, be sure to check with Beak N Wings bird club at www.BeakNWings.org to see what birds they have available.
BIG BEAUTIFUL MACAW:
"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
SLIGHTLY SMALLER MACAWS
Fred is a male Severe Macaw born in 1992. He came from a hoarding situation, and has probably not been handled in years or even decades. He was probably a handfed baby many years ago, and maybe with time and patience he would learn to trust people again. If you want a macaw but not the giant size, the Severe Macaw is a medium sized bird. Adoption fee $250 Sponsored by Marjie Riggio
Wilma is a Severe Macaw of unknown age, presumed to be female. She was paired with Fred in a hoarding situation, and may be tame but has probably not been handled in years. Call us to come meet her and see if she likes you. Adoption fee for this bird is $250 Sponsored by Marjie Riggio
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
Sidney came to us when his dad had to move, but we don't know exactly how old he is. He plucked himself for many years and will be very difficult to stop despite our medical testing and treatment because it has become such a habit. We call him our adorable little cotton ball parrot. He is tame and sweet and needs somebody who will love him despite his unorthodox appearance. 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!
Kiwi, a female Quaker born in 2004, can be a naughty little girl if you let her rule the roost. When allowed free flight, she may attack people she doesn't like. In our rescue with her wings clipped, she seems to be pretty sweet and will talk and let us hold and pet her. Adoption fee for this bird is $75
Jake is a White Capped Pionus of unknown age and sex. After his owner could no longer keep him, and his next home had to give him up, he came to us hoping to find a forever place to call home. He/she will step up and allow petting if you are patient. Pionus parrots are generally pretty quiet and not usually aggressive. Adoption fee for this bird is $150

Max is an African Grey Parrot born in 1998. He can be pretty bossy and territorial in his cage, but is a little better behaved once you get him out of his territory and into yours. Adoption fee for this bird is $400
Max is an African Grey Parrot born in 2004. He can be shy in his cage, but is a little better behaved once you get him out of his territory and into yours. Adoption fee for this bird is $400
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
These seven Zebra Finches came in without names and are of unknown ages. The only one still available for adoption is
