Addison

Chuck
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

After having such a wonderful experience adopting Garth, our first Congo African Grey, from the Refuge, we decided it was time to look at getting a second bird. Once again, we set out to get a different breed-not a Grey, for variety – this time I wanted a ...

Sylvie
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

My husband, who is not a bird person, was adopted by Sylvie. Every time he walks past her cage, she fluffs up and places her head in the down position to be rubbed and cooed at (and boy does he do that!). Whenever he is out of the room she whistles for hi ...
