We would like to introduce Cody, he came into our rescue In early April with an injured wing. It was badly bruised and we had hoped it would heal properly and he would be able to hold it in a normal position, but it appears this may be a permanent look Cody will have to live with. The new pictures were taken in mid June after he had time to heal and feel better. He was nippy at first, but proba...

Hi, my name is Molly 2! My real name is just plain Molly, but because there are 2 Moluccans in the garage, both with the name Molly, we are differentiated by the numbers one and 2. People don?t call me Molly two while playing with me? just Molly works for me. I am a big, happy boy. Yes, I said ?boy?! Obviously, my previous owner didn?t realize I was a boy, which is why the name Molly was chosen...

Hi, my name is Tony! I'm a Lesser Sulphur-crested cockatoo. I'm a bit choosy when it comes to who I like, but I'm very cute once I get to know you. I like to cuddle up underneath your chin while you pet me. I adore under wing rubs and clack my beak while receiving them. I'm really great at chewing up pieces of wood and I'm the only bird at the Refuge who had his very own toy box at the bottom o...

Hi! My name is Rocky and I'm a big Moluccan cockatoo. I've had a bit of a rough life. I had a mom who loved me very much, but she passed away. Her sister tried to care for me, but I got overly excited and bit her and then she put me into a small room and never let me out of my cage. I don't like to dwell on this time in my life though, so let's focus on my current life.

Hi there! I'm Baby 2. I have quite a personality and am gorgeous to boot! I am a bit choosy when it comes to the people that I like, but if you're 1 of those people, I'll make sure you know it! I love to cuddle and also show off how exquisite I am by flapping my wings when held up high in the air. I am well known around the Refuge for sitting on the shoulders of my favorite people and laying my...

Kirby is a little Hahn's macaw who was recently returned to the Refuge due to his owner's busy schedule. His owner is 1 of our volunteers, so Kirby will still get to see his buddy weekly.

Hi! My name is Stormy. I'm a Double-Yellow Headed Amazon. I was neglected for a couple of years before finding my way to the Refuge. Life has been much better since I came to live here. Due to my previous experiences, I am sometimes prone to lunging if you put your fingers too near to my cage. I hope you'll respect me enough to understand this. I do, however, behave very well when people clean ...

Hi, My name is Honey! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm a Medium Sulphur-Crested cockatoo boy. I'm pretty quiet, although being a cockatoo, I certainly have the ability to be loud. The Refuge is still learning about me and will update my profile with more info after they get to know me a bit better.

Hi! My name is Katie. Contrary to what my name suggests, I am actually a male Umbrella cockatoo. I was a very great boy in my previous home, but my Dad's work caused him to travel extensively and he knew that I wasn't getting the time and attention that I deserved. He made the difficult decision to bring me to live at the Refuge. I love to play with boxes and just about any type of toy you give...

Well, hello there! My name is Daisy and I'm an cute little diva. I came to the Refuge all the way from Michigan and traveled on Rich's shoulder the whole way home. It took me all of about two minutes to win Rich over - it must be my charm.

Hi! My name is Angel. Since there was already another Angel at the Refuge before I arrived, I am commonly referred to as Angel 2. I arrived at the Refuge in May of 2009. People tell me I'm a big, attractive boy cockatoo and I tend to agree with them! I love to greet you with my 'Hiii', which is not your typical 'Hi'. I have a great little twist on how I say 'Hiii' to people - trust me, you have...

Hi! I'm Gittle. Thanks for stopping by to look at my profile page. As you can see from my profile picture, I am a stunning Yellow-naped amazon. I found my way to the Refuge after my mom passed away. During the time I've spent here, I've discovered that I LOVE men. Women are really not my thing, but maybe I just haven't met the right 1 yet? If you're looking for a new green buddy, please conside...

Hi there! I'm Zachary, a Goffin's cockatoo. People call me Zach for short. I'm actually a female, even though my name is more of a male's name. I'm a sweetheart and I love perching on people's heads. You may want to check your hair before you leave the house.... you never know what kind of surprise I may have left in there! Over the years, I've been a bit rough on my feathers and many of them w...

Hi, My name is Shady. Thanks for stopping by to check out my profile! I'm a lovable Goffin's cockatoo who came to the Refuge with Gittle (Yellow-naped amazon) after our mom passed away. We're both waiting patiently for new homes (although we do not need to be adopted together). I love women, but it takes me a little while to warm up to men. I also really like towels. I was pretty plucked when I...

Well, hello there! My name is Leo and I'm a Goffin's cockatoo. I was born in April of 2000, which means I'm almost 11 yrs old. I'm a spunky boy who loves a home-cooked [bird] meal. I enjoy veggies too, and showers are taken with relish. My favorite toys are the soft wood kind.

Hi, my name is Rusty and I'm a Cherry-headed conure. I'm a happy boy! I've been told I have a very infectious laugh that makes you laugh right along with me. It's fun! I came to the Refuge along with my 2 African Grey parrot friends, Ziggy and Vito, during 2009 because one of our previous family members developed an allergy to us. Not to brag, but I've stolen the hearts of various volunteers al...

Hi, my name is Papua! That's not a name you hear every day, is it? Like my name, I am a pretty unique bird. I am a fully feathered medium Sulphur-crested cockatoo and am absolutely beautiful (if I do say so myself). I have definite likes and dislikes when it comes to humans. If you're lucky enough to be liked by me, I give lots of love in return. I love a great phone book to chew on and an occa...

Hi, I'm Mickey! I'm a male Umbrella cockatoo. I choose the people I like carefully, but if you're 1 of those people, I'll be your best friend. I do require someone with cockatoo experience who can read my body language. I don't like when people wear baseball hats. Baseball hats scare me. Please keep this in mind if you come to visit me. Unlike a lot of the other cockatoos here, I don't like alm...

Hi, my name is Lemon! Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my page. I?ve been called both Lemon and Hercules, but since I call myself Lemon (oftentimes saying ?I love you Lemon?), everyone calls me Lemon (I think that?s a nicer name anyway - very reflective of the exquisite yellow coloring underneath my flight feathers!). As you can see in my photo, I have to wear a protective collar becaus...
