Don't Buy, Don't BreedPlease Adopt a Bird in Need.
Frankie and his buddy, Mango, just came to the Refuge 11/14/07. He is a male, in great shape and seems to prefer women. Frankie was adopted in April 2008.
9/5/2008 - We have received an update from Samantha, Frankie's forever mom.
Hi Rich & Karen, just wanted to share a few things with you about Frankie. We are now going on 6 months together. He is a very sweet bird, except for being a little cranky first thing in the morning, he refuses to leave his cage, until at least an hour after he's eaten. Frankie loves having company over, he's 10x's more talkative and makes all sorts of chirps and whistles. His vocabulary has also increased, and I've overheard him talking in my voice, when he thought I wasn't home.One of Frankie's favorite things to do with me is going outside to fetch the mail. He LOVES being outside and going for rides in the car, which still suprises me because he is still incredibly skittish.As much as I'd love to rub his neck, he still won't allow anyone to touch his body. Except, when we are in the shower, he lets me nuzzle his belly.Finally, Frankie and I are moving. Grant brought a house on the other side of town, so we will be settling in to the new house by October 5th.
To work in joint cooperation with all avian rescue groups to try and 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.
