Every year, I get bombarded with adoption requests in December from people looking to give/get a parrot as a Christmas gift. Sadly, every January, the surrender requests of unwanted animals who were given as gifts, also come pouring in. I'm already receiving a ton of emails from folks impulsively getting birds and asking me what to do next because they've never owned a bird before! 😟 Please note, we do not offer adoptions during the Holidays and ask that this Christmas, PLEASE think responsibly....PETS ARE NOT GIFTS. They need lots of TIME, TRAINING, LOVE and COMMITMENT!! Be the CHANGE that makes a DIFFERENCE! πŸ•ŠπŸ’πŸ•Š #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit
Ms. Angel update! Most of you may recall, Ms. Angel came to us with a fear of step up. Before we knew it, she conquered her fears and went from no step up to dancing while stepped up! Today, she took her leap of faith to a whole new level and decided to walk the tightrope!

Parrot 101: Parrots Bite! A common mistake I see in the parrot world is when someone sees a ridiculously cute video of an adorable parrot and immediately gets a parrot based on said video. A few months later, they realize in order to have the type of relationship they saw in the video, one has to build said relationship with time, patience, commitment and love. This also meant enduring bites and listening to screams, but they didn't show THIS in the video! The parrots’ beak is designed for constant chewing, i.e. nest building, breaking and opening nuts, foraging for food, and chewing branches. Their beaks can also be dangerous and cause serious injuries to humans. For example, it’s estimated that a large macaw has the bite strength of 500 to 700 pounds per square inch. A Senegal parrot, in spite of his relatively small size, has a tremendously powerful bite that can cause considerable pain and serious injuries. Like all wild animals, even small parrots with no history of biting, may have a flight or fight response and will potentially bite when frightened or startled. There is a false impression that parrots make ideal pets. Yet nothing could be further from the truth, as parrots are still considered wild and require an extraordinary amount of care and attention and can have lifespans comparable to humans. Let this sink in before a beak sinks in and before you rush to get a parrot. A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parronts for providing examples of what parrot owning can be like! Remember! It's not if they'll bite, it's when they'll bite!! πŸ˜‰ #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit

Ms. Sunny update! So as most of you know, Ms. Sunny is one of our more recent rescues that I have been working with for cage aggression and fly-by attacks. She was on a mission and I was enemy #1 ! πŸ˜‚ She no longer is cage aggressive nor does she attack if you are in her invisible barrier! 🀣 Even though she has other conure friend options to hang out with, she decided to fly onto the shoulder of the human she once wanted to take down, but her look of disappointment makes me think this might be a case of 'keep your enemies closer." πŸ€ͺ She's going to be my BFF, she just doesn't know it yet. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit #SunConure #conuresofinstagram #TheConureChaos

I have this detachable plastic chain that goes across the entire living room. Most of the kiddos perch and swing on it, but not Ms. Angel. She has learned that if you vigorously shake the chain on one end, said chain will shake vigorously all the way to the other end smacking anything/anyone in its path, including said human also known as dad man. I took out the part of dad man being hit in the head because he didn't want to be known as the man that got beat up by a girl cockatoo. This ought to teach him to ignore her calls!! 🀣 Ms. Angel ~ "Hey Dad man! I've been calling you! It's dinner time!

If parrots could talk, oh but wait! They can talk! What would your parrot say about you?? πŸ€” We all know people are crazy, but when it comes to people who love animals, well that's a whole different level of crazy! Take that to the next level, and then you have crazy bird people crazy! πŸ€ͺ We're so crazy, we will spend hours taking photos and videos and looking at photos and videos of other people's birds! We're the first to tell you what you should or shouldn't do whether you asked for advice or not. As if we couldn't get enough! Birds! Birds! Birds! Sniffing and collecting molted feathers like an addict and even posting bird shaming posts for birds being birds! 🀣 This post is dedicated to all the birds who have been publicly shamed by their human and I will be the first victim to bird people shaming. Mr. KiKi ~ "My human is so crazy, she catches my poop with her bare hands just so it won't land on her keyboard!

The Life of a Parrot Rescuer Every day we care for others. 365 days a year, 7 days a week, no breaks, no vacations - physical and emotional labor. Our family and friends who once supported you and said "we understand you are busy" now see you as being selfish for putting the parrots first. Nothing has changed on our end, except we have more parrots to take care of. We get told how inappropriate we are for finding humor in something others may not find humorous, something as simple as a curse word, yet we are all grown adults having to tip toe around others. We get angry rude emails if we don't respond within 2 seconds or if you don't agree with our policies. All we supposedly do is make things difficult and ask for money. We get stood up constantly by folks saying they are surrendering, never to be heard from again, and all we can think about is I hope those kiddos are ok. Our hearts are programmed to give and care for others yet we have to swallow our pride on a regular basis and beg and plead for help from others. Some of us work 2 jobs to keep things going. We spend our lives taking care of others and we're lucky if we set aside 5 mins to ourselves. Guess what everyone! We are tired, we are stressed, we are busy and we are human too! On behalf of all the kiddos that have been rescued by a rescuer, THANK YπŸ’U!

We received notification that our #GivingTuesday Fundraiser did not receive any matched donations, but but chicken butt, the AWESOME news is we DID raise $2,600.00 to go towards our new Building/Aviary Fund! The total estimated cost for the building itself is roughly $45K-$50K and with the previous donations we've raised so far, we are close to $10K and almost a quarter of the way there! We may not be able to build as quickly as possible, but we are definitely moving forward and still moving in the right direction, regardless of the speed we go!

Message: "I just got a cockatoo as an early Christmas present and all he does is scream all day and tries to bite me. I've never had a bird before and can't have him screaming or biting me all day." A message I receive on a REGULAR basis. Someone gives a bird to someone who has never owned a bird before. With the holidays around the corner, please be reminded that animals are not objects or toys to be given as gifts. They are living, breathing, emotional beings that need a lifetime commitment of love and care. πŸ•ŠπŸŽ„πŸ•Š #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit #macawofinstagram #macaws

Parrot 101: Screaming at Parrots To Stop Screaming is Counterproductive Screaming is normal behavior for a parrot. Your goal should NOT be to eliminate all screaming and loud squawking, but to reduce the screaming to a tolerable level. This will require gentle patience and consistency among all family members. From the parrot's perspective, getting any attention while they are screaming may be a reward. Some parrots may actually like you to yell back since they love the interaction and the yelling becomes a reward. Yelling, hitting the bird or the cage, leaving the bird isolated, spraying her with water, or withholding food will only increase the stress on the bird and either make the screaming worse, or the bird will turn to another unacceptable behavior such as feather picking. Remember, parrots use vocalizations as warnings and as ways to find the rest of the flock when separated from it. This is why understanding why the bird is screaming is important. You can adjust your actions depending on the circumstances. If the screaming isn't from hidden health issues, the best way to improve the bird's behavior is to give positive reinforcement, i.e., giving something good to the bird when they are sitting quietly on a perch. This could be a special toy, a food treat, and verbal praise. These are rewards, not bribes for better behavior. Simply answering the parrot when they call to you, and letting them know what you are doing can make a difference. Talk to them, don't scream with them! πŸ•ŠπŸ’—πŸ•Š #AdoptARescuedKiddo #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit #TheConureChaos #Conures #conuresofinstagram

Parrot 101: Parrots Have a Built-In Alarm System They will let you know when it's time to wake up, when they are hungry, when the mailman is there, when a car is driving by, when the squirrel is visiting, when they can't see you, and God forbid you be on the phone talking to someone else other than them. These are just a few examples of what may set off their alarm.

How to Get Hugs From a Human by Ms. Sterling. 1) Release a ton of molting feathers in a corner somewhere. You're getting rid of them anyways so why not use them to your advantage? 2) Hide in a corner and watch your human have a minor heart attack frantically looking for you to make sure you are ok. Make sure you use ALOT of feathers! 3) Pop out of said corner when human looks like they're about to cry and say "bawk hawk bawk!" Guaranteed immediate pick-up and hugs!! You're welcome! Happy Molting! πŸ”β€πŸ” #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #TheFeatheredFlock #chickens #chickensofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit

Parrot 101: Parrots are horny. They have needs. They have desires. Their biological clock is ticking and it doesn't matter who's watching! If they don't have a mate, they will masturbate! If done infrequently, behaviorists say masturbation is healthy & natural, allowing the bird a natural release. However, do not allow masturbating to become a frequent habit, as it can damage the cloaca and cause infection. If your bird is masturbating too often, you can often stop the behavior by removing the favored object and redirecting their attention. Ms. Doodle Bugs ~ "When you have no mate, you masturbate! Good morning to me!" #AdoptARescuedKiddo #AdoptFosterLove #RescueRehabilitateEducate #HelpingBirdsInNeedTogether #SupportARescue #HappyWingsSanctuary #Parrots #Birds #parrotsofinstagram #Macaw #macawofinstagram #2018TopRatedNonProfit
