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

Jasper bonded with the son of the house and was a little aggressive towards others. Jasper can be sweet if the right person is willing to work with him. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $400.

Joe's previous owner had to find homes for his birds due to advancing age and health problems.  Something to think about when adopting a large bird is their lifespan.  Joe is between 15 and 20 years old and has a ways to go.  He was tame for his previous owner.

​Tuki belonged to a young woman who didn't want her any more after she grew up and moved away from home. She was born in 2000 and is a bit of a feather picker. She also has a lump on her chest that we will be removing soon after she settles in. She is a good girl who talks and likes to be held by certain people.  Adoption fee for this bird is $50


Fiji the Cherry Head Conure is a child of divorce. She is tame, but shy. She loves to play soccer and would make a great addition to someone's family.

Beautiful Lucy Blue Crown is a tame, sweet talker who is into toy destruction at every opportunity.
She has a big conure personality, but is a little shy about coming out of her cage, and will need some patience.

Pepper on the left and Tila on the right lost their home when their parents lost theirs.  They are sweet and talkative when they are on their own.

We think Annabelle is lovely even though she has some feather damaging behavior.  We are working on it, but Annabelle's new family will need to love her for her personality and good qualities.  Annabelle is a good talker and is nice, but shy.

Squeaks came to us when her mom died. She is tiny but mighty, and yes she squeaks. She does have some plucking issues that we are working on, and is an older bird, but has plenty of love left for the right person.
