Don't Buy, Don't Breed.
Please Adopt a Bird in Need.

  • Friendships

    The Refuge is about friendships between the volunteers who so diligently and lovingly help care for those birds waiting for that forever home, as well as establishing bonds amongst our many fortunate birds that reside here. Read More
  • Security in Numbers

    Some of our feathered friends come to the Refuge as companions looking to find a true connection, whether human or bird. Read More
  • Why?

    The Refuge provides a safe place for parrots that have to be re-homed due to unfortunate situations that sometimes arise. Most of them were loved dearly and cared for, and when that was no longer possible, their companion-people did the most selfless act of kindness in finding them a good home. Read More

Mickey - Umbrella Cockatoo

See all listings from The Refuge
Hi, I'm Mickey! I'm a male Umbrella cockatoo.

I choose the people I like carefully, but if you're one 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 almonds. I do, however, LOVE walnuts and will happily devour one if given the chance.

I'm not a quiet bird and I'm not shy about demanding attention from those people I love.

If you think you'd like to come and meet me, please contact the Refuge. Hope to see you soon!

Mickey - Umbrella Cockatoo

Our Mission Is Simple

To work in joint cooperation with all avian rescue groups to try to eliminate the need for rescue groups by educating the public about aviculture issues. Until that is accomplished, we will provide a sanctuary for those unfortunate parrots that are in need of a home.
