Meet Holly

Meet Holly, a quaker. We don't know much about Holly since she was a stray. She flew into someone's yard last year. They kept her fou about 9 months, but since she didn't like the father of the house, they surrendered her.

She is a very sweet parrot, though a bit cage-aggressive, as quakers are wont to be.

If you'd like to unravel the mystery of this lucky parrot who managed to survive on her own in the wilds of North America only to land with a family and eventually us, please stop be to see if you are a match!

Meet Logan

Meet Logan, an approximately 20 year old nanday conure. Although he is missing most of his feathers, he is yet proof again that you can't judge a book by its cover. He is an incredibly sweet parrot!
He's getting near the end of his natural life span, so we are looking for a home that can give him a fantastic few last good years.

He is still very spry and full of vim and vigor.  Here he is, making his way up from someone's arm to his favorite spot:
Her shoulder.  Once he gets there, he likes to rub his beak against her neck.
If you have room in your heart and home for this little gem, you surely won't regret adopting him! Please stop by the Center to meet him; we're sure you'll fall in love, just like we have!

Meet Kiwi

Meet Kiwi, a 3 year old sun conure. Sun conures are very loud, so they can't be owned by people who live in apartments.
Isn't he just gorgeous?  I never get tired at looking at how beautiful their feathers are!

Kiwi's owners suffered a great tragedy -- their house burned down.  They are in temporary housing that doesn't allow birds, so they surrendered Kiwi so that he can find a new home.

He was very much loved and is a very sweet bird.  He will make a terrific companion to the right person.  He is very gentle and loves to come out of his cage and hang with his people:

Please stop by if you'd like to meet Kiwi!

Meet Sinbad

As promised last week when we introduced you to Tucker, please meet Sinbad.  Sinbad is a 15-16 year old male african grey parrot.  He has cataracts, so has some trouble seeing, but that just means that we need to move a little more slowly around him.

He is very vocal and loves to mimic clicking and whistling sounds.  Here is a short video, but it in no way captures the true delight that he brings to all who meet him:

What a beautiful boy!

From this angle, he almost looks like a space alien:
But it's just the camera!  He's an adorable grey parrot who loves attention and is looking for that special person that will love him and include him in their activities.
Please stop by to visit Sinbad if you're thinking about adding a grey to your home.  He is sure to bring joy and happiness wherever he goes!

Meet Tucker

Meet Tucker, a 15-16 year old female african grey parrot. Tucker lived with Sinbad, a grey we'll introduce you to next week...so stay tuned!

Tucker is a very sweet bird with a fantastic personality.  She makes lots of noises and talks a bit.
Tucker is plucked, and there's so much damage to her feather follicles that she likely will not regrow her feathers.  But, like many of the birds surrendered to us, it's what's inside that counts!  And she has more than enough of a sparkling personality to make up for an entire chest's worth of missing feathers.

Please stop by if you'd like to meet Tucker!  Greys tend not to do as well at the Center as other parrots -- they really thrive in a quieter environment with less activity, so we'd like to find her a home quickly.  If you're someone who can look past appearances, you won't be disappointed with her!

Meet Buddy

Meet Buddy, an approximately 10-12 year old female blue front amazon. She was the much-loved companion of an elderly woman who surrendered her to us when she could no longer care for her.

Buddy is extremely vocal.  She is a very happy bird; as such, she is frequently making noises: talking, beeping, etc.  Her new owners might think there are trucks constantly backing up in their house!

As always, if you'd like to meet Buddy, please stop by the Center. She is such a personable bird so whoever adopts her has a world of fun ahead!
