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

Cresty - Bare-Eyed Cockatoo

See all listings from The Refuge
Hi there!
My name is Cresty (named after the crest on my head) and I'm a super-cute Bare-eyed cockatoo. I came to the Refuge in January, 2013, and I'm still a baby - just 8 months old. My dad took really good care of me, but I was his first cockatoo and he felt I would be too much to handle.

I'm exploring and learning all about the world around me. I'm a little bit on the skinny side, possibly due to being weaned a bit too early. However, I'm enjoying the Refuge food and also get lots of veggies and eggs, so I'm sure my weight will catch up soon.

I've had a DNA test done and I'm definitely a male. I'm quite a sweetheart, according to the volunteers who play with me. I can be a pretty funny guy too, as my favorite place to perch is on your head. Haha!

If you think we could become life-long friends, please contact the Refuge to learn more about me.

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.
