Animal ID: JosieAfrican Grey

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello, my name is Josie and I'm an eighteen year old Congo African Gray. I love to talk, as a matter of fact, my vocabulary is way too long to list. I can speak in a masculine and a feminine voice. Sometimes very soft and sweet, and other times very stern. I mimic many sounds, and can whistle very loud, so no apartments or homes with close neighbors that might not like my sounds. I especially like to converse with my four legged pets. I tell them to 'come on' or 'get outside' to name a few. My favorite thing in the world is my toys, and believe me, I can go through the biggest of toys in the blink of an eye. So, my new parents need to make ... (Read More)sure to keep plenty of toys on hand to keep me entertained. My Foster Mom was told that I haven't been handled in many years, so right now, I'm not very trusting of humans. I don't mind people being around me, but I'm not comfortable being handled yet. My foster mom and I are working on that. I do ask for head scratches and sometimes will put my head down for a scratch or I may just tell you 'no.' I will, however very gently take treats right from your fingers, and will even ask 'Got something yummy?' I have been converted from a seed diet to pellets, fruits, veggies and healthy nuts. When I'm afraid, I will tell you in my sweet little voice, 'It's ok, just go slow.' That one will make your heart melt! If you can't adopt me, but would like to send me a gift I would really appreciate it. Thank you for reading my story! http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/KSEUJCLG2AJY/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_v?

Animal ID: BorisYellow Naped Amazon

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello! My name is Boris and I am a 30 year old Yellow-Nape Amazon. My foster Mom says that I am a big, gorgeous bird! As you can see, my beak is a bit long, I don't have any trouble eating though and the vet said she didn't want to trim it, but instead, let me file it down naturally through the use of toys and perches. It is long because I was previously on a seed diet and my liver enzymes are a bit elevated, but with good food, fresh air, and plenty of sunshine, she said that my blood work will straighten out very soon! I am now enjoying a diet of healthy pellets, fresh vegetables, chop, fresh fruits, and healthy nuts, so this has been a ... (Read More)real treat - this is a diet that I should be on for the rest of my life. I love to talk, my vocabulary is huge and I pick up new words very easily. I can say Boris, Hi Boris, Bye Bye, come here Boris, come here, where we going, and I also say my previous owners name, Netta. It doesn't just stop with just words though, I also whistle! I also enjoy listening to quiet music, hearing people sing (I love to try and sing along), being talked to, and I love to practice talking and will mumble words. I especially like trying to carry on a conversation with you if you come over and talk with me. Before I came to Florida Parrot Rescue, I wasn't let out of my cage much in the last 2 years, so I was pretty scared when I first got here, but I am warming up to my foster Mom now - I just need time to adjust to new situations, is all! I am still working on stepping up from the cage, but I will step up for you after gliding down to the floor. I do seem to prefer women, in fact, I was only with a woman for my entire life, but I will take a treat from a man's finger - I mean, come on, it is food! I also do not mind other animals being in the home, I actually find them very entertaining, just remember that I am fragile and it is your job to keep me safe! I am really looking forward to having a family of my own again, maybe that could be you? Please come meet me very soon so we can see if we are right for each other! In the meantime, if you would like to send me a welcome to rescue gift, especially wooden toys to help with my beak, please check out my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3E4LXCLCSFZPL/ref=cm_wl_list_o_27?

Animal ID: KermitQuaker Parakeet

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello! My name is Kermit. I am a young quaker parrot, about 4 to 5 years old, and the veterinarian says that I am in perfect health. I am like most quaker parrots and can be a bit defensive around my cage, but once I am away from the cage, I lighten up a bit. I don't like hands very much and I don't step up yet, but my foster Mom is working with me on that. I will come sit with you while you watch TV or hang out at the computer, though. I will especially come try to find you if you have food! I LOVE FOOD! I eat all kinds of healthy pellets and I adore chop, fresh vegetables, fruits, and healthy nuts. I will follow you around the house ... (Read More)if you have my favorite treat - which is Caitec Birdie cookies - any flavor will do - just GIVE THEM TO ME! I am also starting to learn to play with toys and to appreciate baths - we still have some work to do with both of those things, though. I don't mind other animals being around, they don't worry me at all, just remember that I am small and fragile and that it is your job to keep me safe! I LOVE out of cage time and I like to be where you are, so if you have play areas for me in the rooms you hang out, that keeps me very happy and occupied. Most of all, I am just looking for a place of my own where I will be spoiled with tons of attention, healthy food, and where I will be king of the house - because my foster Mom says that is what I deserve. I really hope that maybe you will come and meet me very soon, but maybe in the meantime while I wait here to be adopted, you could send me a gift? I would really appreciate it!

Animal ID: Mya and KDConure and Parrotlet (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hi, my name is Mya and this is my little sister, K.D.. Isn't she just the cutest little thing? I am a 6 year old green cheek conure and K.D. is a two year old parrotlet. We are typical sisters, sometimes we pick on each other, but most of the time we get along really good. K.D. is like my little shadow, whatever I do she does. Kind of like 'monkey see monkey do,' lol! We miss our mommy, but we are glad she is getting the time she needs to take care of herself and not have to worry about us. We have plucked some of feathers, but mostly because we were worried about our mom. Now that we know she is fine, we are doing much better. Some ... (Read More)of feathers are starting to come back. We went to the vet and did really well. I was a little nervous, but the ladies at the vet were very patient with us. We got a clean bill of health and will be ready for our forever home real soon. Of course we come as a pair and need to stay together forever. I step up and like to sit on your shoulder and of course if I'm on your shoulder, K.D. will be right there, too. Of course I don't mind sharing. My foster mom says we are very sweet. We eat a good diet of pellets and a little seed. We even tried some 'Chop' today, boy was it tasty! Well, I think that's it for now, time to get quiet and sleep for the evening. We hope to meet our forever family soon. Love Mya and K.D. P.S. if you would like to send us a few welcome to rescue gifts while we wait for our forever family to come and get us, you can see our amazon wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2DBAYKOM88Q52/ref=cm_wl_list_o_108?

Animal ID: Romeo and JulietQuaker Parakeet

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello! My name is Romeo and my best friend is Juliet. We are a bonded pair of quaker parrots who must be adopted together. When we first came into rescue, Juliet was plucking quite badly and we were both scared and considered a bit aggressive. However, we have blossomed since coming into rescue! We are fabulous eaters and will try just about anything you give us. We currently eat a diet of pellets, fresh vegetables, fruits, and healthy nuts. We especially like it when our foster Mom makes us fresh, delicious treats - our favorite is banana! We also now love to come out of our cage to explore our environment. Like most quakers, we can ... (Read More)still be a little cage defensive, but once away from our cage, we are quite nice and will step up for you. We like to go outside for sunshine and fresh air (supervised and safe in an enclosed area, of course) and we love to chatter back and forth. We even wolf whistle and try really hard to talk! We do get quite upset if we are separated though, so please understand that if you adopt us, that we have to remain together - always. We are really looking forward to finding a family who will provide us lots of love and care for the rest of our days. Maybe that family can be with you? Please come meet us very soon to see! In the meantime, if you would like to send us a gift through our wish list, we would appreciate anything you send our way!

Animal ID: RedRed Lored Amazon (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Senior


    Hello! My name is Red and I am a Red Lored Amazon. I am an elderly bird, about 40-50 years old, and my foster Mom says I think of myself as the matriarch of the flock. My story is a bit sad, but it has gotten much happier. I was previously thrown out in the street, but thankfully, a Good Samaritan rescued me after finding me in a dumpster and brought me to Florida Parrot Rescue! I had several medical issues upon coming into rescue. I was very thin, had numerous vitamin deficiencies, and a really bad scissor beak that needed a lot of work in order for me to be able to eat properly. It was also obvious that I had previously suffered from ... (Read More)several infections and drainage in the past around my beak. I also have several fatty tumors on my body. In addition, it was found that I had an untreated broken wing, which has left me unable to fly, as you can see from the funny way my feathers stick out. None of these issues threaten my happiness or well-being though, I am quite the cheerful little girl and ready to find a forever home. I do have some arthritis and because of this I spend most of my time on my brand new play top stand on my cage. I also sleep up here as well, it is just more comfortable for me this way. I LOVE my toys, especially the wicker balls that I play with on the top of my cage. I also like to sing, my foster Mom says that I sound like an opera star, plus I do a wolf whistle. I am also enjoying some great food in my foster home. I love to eat pellets, fresh vegetables, fruits, and healthy nuts. I LOVE blueberries. My beak does still grow funny, so I need to see the vet about every 6 weeks for a beak trim. I really hope that despite my specialized care, there will be someone out there who will love me and want me for the rest of my days. Maybe that will be you? I hope you come meet me very soon, but in the meantime, maybe you would like to send me a gift? You can see my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/1UWGWXXA3S2X9/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o? All gifts are very appreciated! THANK YOU! (Less)

Animal ID: JakeBlue & Gold Macaw

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult


    Hello! My name is Jake and I am a Blue and Gold Macaw - sometimes I am called Jaky because it is believed I am a female. As you can see, I have a history of plucking and my chest is mostly bare, but since I have been in foster care with other birds and lots of distractions like toys and foraging time, some of my chest feathers have begun to grow back. I am comfortable being around other parrots and other species of animals, just remember that I can be fragile and need to be kept safe by you. I mostly enjoy human interaction though - I love one-on-one human attention! My foster Mom says that I am a great eater and I love to have a little of ... (Read More)what you are having (just remember that it needs to be parrot safe and healthy!). I also enjoy my diet of healthy pellets, chop, fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy nuts. My foster Mom says that I am pretty quiet and easy to handle - but I am still a macaw so that doesn't mean I can' be vocal from time to time. I really hope that you will come and meet me soon to see if I can become part of your family. In the meantime, if you would like to send me a gift from my wish list, you can see that list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3QXT30TU8XLFE/ref=cm_wl_list_o_72?

Animal ID: DiegoCatalina Macaw

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Birds 

    Hello! My name is Diego and I am a strikingly beautiful Catalina Macaw, which is a hybrid of a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Scarlet Macaw. I am in perfect feather and my foster mom says I am just gorgeous! I have to agree with her! I enjoy human affection, but I do not care for other parrots. I have been around cats before and I actually have this weird thing for them - but please remember that even though I seem to want to be near them, that parrots should never be allowed to interact with cats or dogs, ever! If I am out of my cage - other species of animals should be in another room. You are the human and must keep me safe, so please keep ... (Read More)that in mind! I am a very good eater and like most parrots, I am very interested in whatever it is that you are eating! I am currently fed a diet of pellets, chop, fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy nuts as treats. I do get a bite of healthy foods that my foster Mom may be eating though, and that makes me very happy! I also enjoy a good shower! My foster Mom says that for a Macaw, I am actually fairly quiet - but that doesn't mean I can't have my moments! I hope that you will come and meet me very soon, I am looking forward to a family of my own. In the meantime, if you would like to send me a gift from my wish list, you can see that list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/65U2GSOO5QZ9/ref=cm_wl_list_o_41?

Animal ID: BlakeCockatiel (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello! My name is Blake, but you can call me Beautiful Blake because I really am. I am a very handsome white faced cockatiel, less than 5 years old, and a perfect specimen, if I do say so myself. I don't talk, so what? I prefer to imitate the birds I hear outside or make my own noises! I am not convinced that hands are ok, so I won't step up yet, but give a guy a break! I am just learning to eat healthy chop, as well as vegetables, almonds, greens, and things I can't remember the names of. I eat some Harrison's adult fine grind pellets, and Safflower Gold seeds. I really love Harrison's Birdy Bread, any flavor will do!!! I am ... (Read More)willing to learn new things, and want to explore, but I need someone to love me and be patient with me. I am very, very smart, and you won't find a better looking man anywhere! Check me out and come meet me soon! If you would like to buy me a Welcome to Rescue gift, here is a link to my Amazon wishlist. Thank you! https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3S1AG36NWHOCQ/ref=cm_wl_list_o_19? (Less)

Animal ID: AngelUmbrella Cockatoo

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello there! My name is Angel and I am a beautiful Umbrella Cockatoo. I came to rescue because my owner was beginning to travel and I was unable to go, so she felt it was time to find me a more stable and permanent situation. Now that I am in foster care, I have a foster Mommy who loves me lots and is working very hard to transition me from a seed based diet to a healthier diet with pellets, fresh vegetables and fruits, chop, and healthy nuts. When I first got here, I was a little scared, but every day I am getting better. I love to sit on your shoulder and if you are sitting down I will come down your arm and lean into your chest for you ... (Read More)to love me. I do say a few words like Hell-O, Pretty Bird, Grandpa and I also cry like a dog and I like to Wolf whistle. I can get loud when I want attention, but my foster Mom is working with me on that. I really hope that you will come and visit me very soon to see if maybe you would like to make me part of your family - I really love human attention and I really need your love! While I wait here for someone to pick me for their family companion, I would sure appreciate some gifts from my wish list at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3J586LKO7EKUB/ref=cm_wl_list_o_2?

Animal ID: OscarGreenwing Macaw (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello there, my name is Oscar and I am big, beautiful 18 year old greenwing macaw. I came to rescue from a very loved home but my owner was very sick and could no longer care for me. These rescue people are great though! They got me a new cage and all my 'fans' donated toys to me! OK more about me - I am a bird that bonds strongly to one person and do try to bite everyone else. What can I say I'm just a one women kinda guy. Men do scare me a little., they are fine from afar and all, but I really want a female companion. I can be VERY VERY loud at times, but that's typical for a bird my size. I will scream when my foster mom leaves my sight. ... (Read More)I like having an area of my own and looking outside thru a window - it keeps me calm watching the other animals outside. I am a very picky eater, but my foster mom is working on that. I like to get my head scratched all the time, especially by my ear holes and around my head. I especially love doing this at night as this is our routine. I do lunge and pretend like I'm going to bite foster mom sometimes, which she isn't scared of, but you need to watch me and not be scared either. I will only be adopted to a lady who will be my 'person' and she must have the knowledge of birds my size and is not intimated by me. Is that person you? I really hope you will come and meet me soon, but while I wait, maybe you can send me a gift or two from my wish list? you can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3JWCOGIVMTP0V/ref=cm_wl_list_o_102?

Animal ID: MaxBlue and Gold Macaw

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hi everyone, my name is Max and I am a beautiful blue and gold macaw! I came into the rescue after my mom moved to a retirement facility and couldn't bring me with her. I was very sad at first, but since entering the rescue I have flourished with all of this out of the cage play time! I love to talk and my foster family says I am VERY entertaining. Overall, I am pretty quiet for a macaw, though I just can't resist the occasional screaming - I like to be heard sometimes, ya know?! I know the perfect person or family for me is out there - they just haven't found me yet! Could it be you? Maybe wile I sit here and wait for you to come and visit ...

Animal ID: BabyGoffins Cockatoo

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hi! My name is baby and I am the sweetest Goffins Cockatoo ever! I love to snuggle to your neck while watching TV. I also love to just be in the middle of everything you are doing, but I am a goffins, so that is completely normal! I love almost everyone I meet. I have a mild fear of small active children and dogs. They make me very nervous. I don't bite them but I let them know I am not comfortable, so please just remember that about me and try not to put me in situations where I am uncomfortable. I love to eat almost anything, but be careful because some of your food could hurt me though - so make sure you know your food do's and don'ts ... (Read More)for parrots! I absolutely love pistachios. My favorite thing to do is dance and if your turn on music (especially classic rock) I will just start dancing. I love to say Rock and Roll and Dance. I Love to have a dance off with myself in the mirror. I also love to sit out on the back porch on my perch and listen to music (and of course dance). I am also getting to like taking showers a little bit. My foster mom bought a shower perch and I love to hang out in there with her. Did I mention that I love to dance?! Would you please adopt me and spoil me some more?! Maybe in the meantime, you can send me a gift off of my wish list to help fill up some room in my great new cage the rescue got for me?

Animal ID: PearlGoffins Cockatoo (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult


    Hello there! My name is Pearl and I am a gorgeous Goffins Cockatoo. I am about 10 years old and my foster mom says that I am a good girl with a great personality! I love to get head scritches and I can also say hello. When I came to Florid Parrot Rescue, I didn't know anything about stepping up or about the good stuff like pellets, treats, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and healthy nuts. That has all changed now! I get these things every day and have even gotten a new cage and some awesome new toys. Now that I am as spoiled as I can be while in rescue, there is just one more thing that I need. I need a family of my very own! A family who ... (Read More)will love me and cherish me forever and ever and who will continue to spoil me for the rest of my life! Maybe that will be you? I do have to tell you though, while I am a pretty indiscriminate lover, I ADORE men. Whenever a man enters the room, I will do anything to try and get his attention. I will dance and even tricks! I really hope that you can come and meet me very soon to see if we are the right fit for each other! I can't wait to meet you! Maybe while I wait for you to come, you can purchase me a toy off of my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3LB19ZCHVEHAC/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o?

Animal ID: PeanutWhite Capped Pionus

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello there! My name is Peanut. I am a gorgeous White Capped Pionus and I am about 7-8 years old. I love to eat, but I am very picky. My foster family is trying to convert me from seeds onto a healthy diet of pellets, fresh vegetables, fruits, and healthy nuts. Let's just say - I am not a fan yet, but I will keep trying. I am also unsure of showers right now, but maybe with time, I will grow to love them. I do LOVE LOVE LOVE this whole toy thing! My favorite toy (which my foster Mom bought 5 of) I have destroyed so quickly that I am already out, so I need more! Shredding toys are my favorite, for sure! I like to come out of my cage and hang ... (Read More)out on the top of the door, but sometimes I decide to glide down and do a walk about. I don't mind being in a home with other animals, but I don't need to be as I tend to ignore everyone else right now, just remember that you need to keep me safe around other species of animals, especially while I am out on walkabout. It is safest to keep everyone out of the same room as me when I am exercising my little legs by walking! I am a bit timid of people - I take a while to get used to you and I do not know how to step up. I am sometimes so scared that I will flip over and scream and growl at you when approached and will sometimes bite. I do need work on handling in this way, but I really hope that maybe there is someone out there who might love me enough, and be patient enough, to adopt me and work with me on these challenges. I only like men though, they are the only people I seem drawn to at all, I will come closer to listen to them talk if they are quiet and patient, but I still do not like to be touched. In the meantime, if you want to send me a gift from my wishlist, you can go to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/23NDB85PLSF0V/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o? My favorite toy is at the very top of that list. Thank you, and I can't wait to meet you! (Less)

Animal ID: MillieGoffins Cockatoo

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello Everybody! My name is Millie and my new foster parronts said I am a gorgeous Goffins Cockatoo. I agree! I love my new foster Dad. I hang out on his shoulder a lot and like to cuddle with him. I also love love LOVE head scratches! I am ok with my foster Mom, but a bit skittish, I just need some time to get used to her. I am fine with the dogs in the house also, just remember to be careful with parrots being around other animals, safety first! I have a good vocabulary such as 'where you at?' but have only said 'hello' so far. I don't want my fosters to fall in love with me too quickly, lol! I prefer to be out of my cage as much as ... (Read More)possible and am also happy hanging out on top of it. I only like to go to bed when it is quiet in the house after everyone has gone to bed, otherwise I will squawk a bit to let you know I would rather hang out with you. Oh, I forgot to tell you that I was a major plucker a few years ago and did some permanent damage to my wing feathers that will probably not grow back. My body is covered with this white fluffy stuff and I might be able to grow back some beautiful feathers some day, once I am comfortable in a forever home. Look at my picture though, I am beautiful anyway! I also need time to get used to new surroundings, so I just need someone who is going to be patient with me and who will love me just the way I am. Would you like to meet me? I would like to meet you! I hope we can arrange a meeting very soon. In the meantime, if you would like to send me a welcome to rescue, gift, please see my amazon wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/25120XQ4LPJBC/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o?

    Hi! My name is Daisy, the Goffin's Cockatoo, and I am as pretty as the flower. I am also a most agreeable little girl, I nod my head and say 'Yep' to everything, check out the video of me! I came into FPR on a mostly seed diet and my foster mom is currently trying to figure out which pellets I like the best. So far, I do like Harrison's. My foster mom is also introducing me to fresh fruits and veggies, I love cauliflower! I have a clean bill of health from the FPR vet, except for a small yeast infection that I am on medication for. I only have to take them for 21 days, so I will be done with those long before I am done with quarantine and ... (Read More)ready to go to my new home. I like music, especially when my foster mom sings to me and I will bob and swing my head in my 'Daisy' dance. I am a little timid of new things and still have not stepped up on my foster mom's hand but she is sure it won't be long until I do, I just need some time is all. I will need a family that is patient and has lots of love to give me. I know I will make my forever family a great companion soon. Are you them? Please come meet me and let's find out! If you would like to send me a welcome to rescue gift, you can see my amazon wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/158GAWE9PDW02/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o? Any and all gifts will be greatly appreciated! (Less)

Animal ID: JourneyBlue & Gold Macaw

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 

    Hi. My name is Journey and I am an approximately 15 yr old blue and gold macaw. They call me a boy but the doctor hasn't confirmed it. My foster mom gave me this name because I didn't have a name prior to coming here. I also never came out of my cage. Don't worry though; life isn't too shabby nowadays. I try to talk and am learning that being vocal isn't a bad thing but a way of expressing myself. I eat healthy nuts and am in the final stages of a full conversion from seed to pelleted diet. I am still a little uneasy with interacting with people but as you can see by my photos my foster mom is working on it because the world is a big and ... (Read More)scary place outside of my cage! I am also learning how to play with toys because I love shredding newspaper on the bottom of my cage! My foster mom bought me a shred ball and I love it! I am OK with dogs being around - I am curious of them. I seem to like my foster mom over my foster dad but only by a little. I am working on being handled by humans as they haven't really interacted with me that much in my life, but I get lots of almonds and fruit for doing it so I am learning to gently take it from hands while in my cage because my cage is my safe place. I am pretty quiet for a macaw but come near my house and I will scream to let my family know! No need for an industrial alarm here! I am not the bird for someone who doesn't have big parrot experience as I have not been interacted with a lot until recently. With patience and love my foster mom already sees the great potential I have bottled up inside...I'm just scared. Will you take me in as one of your own? Interested in adoption?

Animal ID: Ms HaroldSevere Macaw (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    My name is Ms. Harold and I am an 8 year old Female Severe Macaw. I am a good bird who strongly prefers men. I would do best with a single male or at least a male as my primary caregiver. I am a great talker and my foster parents are still finding out new things I say every day. I eat a variety of food well but my foster Dad is working on converting me to a healthy diet of pellets, vegetables and fruits and by the way, I LOVE nuts as treats - only healthy nuts though like pistachios and almonds - no peanuts! I also really love to enjoy meal time with my human. Since I am a macaw, I can be very loud when I want to be but for the most part I ... (Read More)am quiet (for a bird anyway)! Please come and meet me very soon - I would love to have a new family of my very own! (Less)

Animal ID: Brutus & BellaAmazon & Cockatoo (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Birds 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello! We are Brutus and Bella. I am a beautiful female Goffins Cockatoo and my best friend forever is Brutus - he is a male Red Fronted Amazon. We truly are BFF's - we were raised together for the last 17 years by the same Mommy who loves us very much and we do miss her - but we also know that we have many more years yet to come and that we need a roost to hang our hats - that is where you come in! Make sure you are aware that we are bonded and we do have to be adopted together - we can never be separated! Fortunately though, we are both VERY friendly and we love to ride on our foster Dad's shoulder (we are indiscriminate lovers - we ... (Read More)don't care if you are a boy or girl!). I am a princess and so am very spoiled, you will have to learn how to accept this about me - all I want is to be snuggled and loved - I can NEVER get too much attention. But Brutus loves attention as well and we both really enjoy being out of our cages and with humans as much as possible. We eat pellets as the main part of our diet along with fresh vegetables and some fruits and we love nuts as special treats. Overall, we are both very well behaved and I know you would love to have us in your family - but we think our foster Dad might have a very hard time letting go because we are just so special and fun to be around, lol!! So please come meet us just as soon as you can - we want to start our new life with you as quickly as possible - we have so much to do with our future family! Interested in adoption?

Animal ID: Lu-ManQuaker

Pet Bird   

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello! My name is Lu. My foster Mom calls me the Lu-Man - or sometimes 'The Mean Green Terrorizer!' I am a 5 year old quaker parrot and my foster Mommy says I am very special. I had an accident with my beak that has left me with only a partial beak on one side, but I am able to get around just fine and I am eating regular pellets, chop, fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy nuts - almonds are my favorite nuts! However, I also go crazy over Caitec Birdie Munchie Cookies and I have to have chop every day, or I will vocalize until I get it! My care is a little bit specialized though and FPR says I will only be adopted to the right ... (Read More)family. I do live in a very large aquarium which has to be cleaned every night before bedtime, rather than a regular parrot cage. I also have to go to the vet every month for a beak trim - this needs to be done by an avian vet to make sure it is done in a very specific way so that I am can still get around and eat properly. Don't worry though - my small handicap does not take away from my bite! I can be very territorial of my cage and I only like certain people. In fact, when I pick the person I trust, watch out - you better not come near, because I will defend that person from you! My chosen person enjoys shoulder time with me and a nice preen of their face and hair. I don't like hands though - even the hands of my chosen person, so I only step up in a certain way - don't worry, my foster mom can show you, it is easy. With more time, I may learn to trust your hands as long as you are very patient and loving with me. I really hope that you will come and visit with me soon. In the meantime, maybe you can send me some of my favorite things thorough my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2US4THPOPJI7T/ref=cm_wl_list_o_146?

Animal ID: PacolinaBlue & Gold Macaw (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Pacolina is a 7 1/2 yr old DNA sexed female Blue & Gold Macaw. She loves to hang out on top of her cage and observe everything that is going on around her. She has not been handled in a very long time due to the circumstances of her previous owner, however, but we know she will come around. She will need someone with patience to work with her and give her the love she deserves, it will take just the right person, but we know we can find that person for her! Pacolina loves wooden toys and nuts in the shell. She has been converted to a very healthy diet of pellets, fresh veggies, nuts and fresh fruit on occasion and her feathers are beginning ... (Read More)to grow back in. She does prefer men, but is good with some woman also. Won't you come meet her and give her the love and attention she wants and deserves in a forever home?

Animal ID: BanditBlue & Gold Macaw (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello! My name is Bandit and I am a gorgeous Blue and Gold Macaw in my twenties. Before I came into rescue, I was cage bound for many, many years and I had plucked myself so badly that I damaged my feather follicles, which means that my feathers will not grow back in most places. But that's OK because I am a fun loving nudist! Who needs clothes? Not me! My foster family has shown me that I am gorgeous without them! When I first came into rescue, if anyone came within even a few feet of me, I would have a panic attack and fall on my back screaming, flapping, and kicking. I would also bite pretty hard - I was just so scared that I didn't ... (Read More)know what else to do. But I have flourished in foster care and I am now a much happier parrot. I get plenty of daily out of cage time with my foster family and I love to explore my surroundings. I don't pluck anymore, but like I said, I will always be a nudist due to feather follicle damage. I love to be in the middle of all of the action at all times and I love to talk and amuse you with my vocalizations. I can bark, quack, and I am picking up new words all the time. I am still learning to trust though and am working on stepping up consistently, but I love to take treats from your hand and I enjoy my toys. My training has been a long road, but I will get there as long as I am with someone who has lots of patience and love to show me, I really also need an experienced large bird owner. I have been in rescue since 2013 after coming in with 3 other birds after our Mommy had died in a motorcycle accident, so I am very much looking forward to finding a family of my own where I know I will be safe and loved. Maybe that could be with your family? I would really like for you to come meet me so we can see! In the meantime while I wait for my perfect family to come along, maybe you would like to send me treats or toys from my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/34UKP0CYU8E3I/ref=cm_wl_list_o_14?

Animal ID: Mihtu & MihtiCockatiel Bonded Pair (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Birds 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hello! My name is Mihtu and my best friend is called Mihti. We are a bonded pair of cockatiels and must be adopted together - we both get a bit frantic if we are separated even for a very short time. We are about 4-5 years old. Our foster Mom says we have big personalities for such little birds, but we are a little shy and you need to gain our trust before we are comfortable with you. We love to sing songs and dance for you and we love it when you sing back! Our current diet consists of a good mix of pellets and seed, and we are starting to eat fruits and veggies. We are always next to each other and we preen each other constantly. ... (Read More)Once we are used to you, we will both hop on your shoulders and want to hang out with you wherever you go! We are learning step up and are very curious of new things that you can teach us! We really hope that you will soon give us a happy place that we can call home! Please come meet us very soon! In the meantime, if you would like to send me a Welcome to Rescue gift, you can view my Amazon wish list here. http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/XHP3P0656SZY/ref=cm_wl_list_o_93?

Animal ID: Crash & BoomerQuaker Parakeet

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Birds 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    Crash and Boomer are bonded to each other and must be adopted together. These two are absolutely adorable and with very clear, sweet little voices. They will talk to you and love talking to each other. They will imitate animal sounds, dog barks, cat purrs and chicken clucks. They preen each other, feed each other and protect each other. Both are in excellent health, fully feathered and always animated . Crash was a wild Quaker that sustained a permanent wing injury 5-6 years ago when he was hit by a car. We don't know Crash's age, vet estimates 7-10 years old. Crash won't come to you unless you have Boomer out first. Boomer is 4 years old, ... (Read More)previous owner purchased him as a baby to be a friend for Crash. Boomer is the tamer one and very sweet when he is away from Crash. From the cage: They will both step unto your hand if you drap a hand towel over your hand. I don't know why they are comfortable with it, but it works really good. When away from the cage they will both step up on your fingers. They don't have a preference for men or women, they will go to either. They love taking showers, will sit on the shower perch and enjoy the spray bottle or a little splash from the shower head. They are good eaters, not too picky. Sometimes they get a little competitive over the food cup. So we'll put in 2 cups one on the other side. Boomer is the one that likes human interaction. If you take him out alone, you can give him kisses and scratches. Crash doesn't let anyone touch and when they are out together, he tries to position himself between you and Boomer. Both are very good talkers and extremely intelligent. They will say goodbye when they know you're leaving and when you cover them at night, then leave the room. We have them trained to understand the word "perch" means to go inside their cage. This is a nightly routine for them, they are really good boys. Boomer is a strong flier, so he will need to get his wings clipped frequently. If you have other birds or animals, he will fly over to them which can be harmful to him. He's a little explorer.
