Hi, my name is Kiwi. I’m a handsome Blue-Fronted Amazon around the age of 44. I may be an older guy, but I have the energy of a teenager and still have many years ahead of me. My family gave me up because they moved and had a new baby. I would prefer a home where I'm the only bird, so I can have all the attention for myself. One of my favorite activities is learning new behaviors, because I am very food motivated. With some time working together as teacher (me) and student (you), and of course my favorite food treats, I know you and I can learn target training, and with your help I’ll be happy to touch targets, turn on a perch, and wave my foot on cue. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but no one ever said you can't teach an old parrot new tricks. ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to have him here with me. My Orange Wing Amazon crossed the Rainbow Bridge the day after Christmas at the young age of only 32 because her previous owners let her suffer with Asper for years then gave her to someone who knows nothing about birds and he called me to take her. I only had her for 2.5 years, but I know she was happy and getting the medical care she needed.

I am a new parrot mama. She is a beauty, a Meyer . We are learning what each other likes. ( ok, to be honest it's mostly what she like). Before I purchased her I ask my daughter if when I become to old to take proper care of her she would. She agreed which gave me peace of mind. She has a sun conure.

I wish I could have him. I'm in Wisconsin though :(. My bird Dexter is old I love older birds

You can come live with me and my 3 babies. How far are you from Gainesville FL

I would love to get him my parakeet just died on Saturday and would love to get another bird.

Beautiful bird...So upsetting that people would give up their bird (a member of family) because of a move and a baby...Didn't they even think about this before acquriing this beautiful bird...I hope this beautiful bird finds a forever home..I can see if someone is very ill and can't take care of their baby anymore.

What is wrong with people? I'm beginning to think we should have to go through a very thorough screening process before we're allowed to keep a parrot from any source.

Such a beautiful bird. I hope he finds a forever home, instead of one that just gives him up because he's "inconvenient". Breaks my heart 💔

The long life expectancy of parrots is probably rarely considered when deciding to bring one home as a pet. I adore my own but think it's time the long-lived ones be banned as pets. How many people commit to 40 plus years with these creatures? Not enough shelters. Very sad.

Poor baby, would you leave your child?

Love him. He can come to my house I live in Minnesota

I love his face!

He is very likable guy, I have met him.

I want him he can live with us for sure

Awwww, Kiwi, you're gorgeous, so sweet!

Shared!

Shame on them !!!

Typical story - so sad :(

So so so sweet! I would adopt him in a heartbeat if I didn't already have two eclectus. They are already a handful but I love them more than anything. I would give him a home in a minute if I didn't already have parrots. This boy is so so so sweet wish I knew someone to give him a forever home. With lots of love. That's what he really really really deserves. Not someone who'll give him up just because of changes and situation someone who loves him and will adapt because they love him and they love their new situation no matter what. Poor kiwi he deserves more and a loving home where he is greatly appreciated. God bless you kiwi I hope you find your forever home soon.

I would love to have a chat with the people that gave him up. They would not like me.

Merry Tubb this is the site and peanut's cousin is up for adoption! ❤️😢

Face to face interactions are simply unsafe with some parrots but they can be especially dangerous when the parrot is a newly adopted member of the family, is likely stressed, and whose tolerance for touch, kisses and eye contact are not yet known. Get to know your parrot at a safe distance before bringing it close to your face or allowing it on your shoulder but always be aware that conditions can change and being bitten is a possibility. Be extra careful with children who may want to go face to face. ... See MoreSee Less

This is true with chickens as well. I have only one that I actually trust.

The Gabriel Foundation, you mention "eye contact"...can you explain further please? Thanks!

Is that a Moluccan cockatoo? That's my fave! 💙

Hi Shauna Roberts!!! 😍

yes, very true. Perry - after 12 years - nabbed me on the lip which required stitches. The next year she nabbed my ear - and that was it, she lost shoulder privileges forever. I was so disheartened I was ready to give her away but fortunately had a change of heart and learned to re-love her which lasted another 26 years until she passed. I ultimately attributed the bites to the probability she was warning me about "that guy" in my life...and she was right!!

My mustached is allowed on my shoulder but sometimes it's almost like she has a devilish manic episode and tries to attack my ears! But...most times she just sits and sleeps on me....:)

My emergency after hours vet has a huge scar on her face from an umbrella cockatoo O.O and I've seen some of the sweetest birds get over stimulated and bite even out of happiness over stim, thankfully I only have a gcc but my mom has a few scars from her on her neck and face because unlike me my mom is not the best at paying attention to body language and sometimes she pays attention to her phone too long and evie will get upset and latch on pretty hard. You think shed of learned her lesson by now, nope

Whether or not a bird is allowed to "shoulder surf" at my house depends totally on the bird, and to a lesser extent, the time of the year. Breeding season makes everyone unpredictable.

Kihae is doing well and is allowed on my shoulder, but I understand it is a huge risk. Bites to the face and ears can be dangerous and leave lasting scars. Please everyone be careful.

Or if a 'sound' scares them- could be a noise outside, another bird chirping, dryer timer, etc. Do I sound like any of this has happened to me??!! 😜

I have a Senegal that has been with me for 20+ yrs. He is not allowed on my shoulder or anywhere near my face. He has a propensity for biting without warning.

I have an Indian ringneck that is no longer allowed on my shoulder because he sneak attack bites me on my ears. Its gotten worse and worse - so now I simply don't let him sit on my shoulder at all anymore.

Cockatoos are so loving! My too hugs me! she is so sweet

Hehe... I always give birdie kisses

Great reminder!

Wise words.

VERY good advice!

Taking a walk through our large Umbrella Cockatoo flight, you never know what will happen. Angel and Quinlan seem happy to be on their perch. Casper and Tico on the other hand, need to investigate the new person in their flight. It's never a dull moment when you are with eight male Cockatoos happily playing and explore their outdoor enclosure. ... See MoreSee Less

Thor Bird saying hi to all his cockatoo buddies at the Gabriel Foundation!

I bet you all have a blast with all these wonderful birds.....

This is my Parker, he's shocked at the lovely enclosure and asking me why he doesn't have one!!!

"We're gonna hop around the flight tonight" (sung to the tune of Rock Around the Clock) 🐦

They love being outside. I know mine do.

Nothing I enjoy more than hanging out in a 'too flight!!!

Too-Cute! How do you get them all back in?

My favorite sounds ❤

Made me smile!

OMG... too precious <3

Three questions: the dimensions of this aviary, reasonable population limit, and mesh grade. I'm guessing 1600 sq ft for 30-40 cockatoos, 16 ga woven... The one we have now is only good for a small group of medium sized parrots (25'x20'x12' tall, 16 gauge welded mesh with 1" apertures).
