This is a great time to adopt. Birds included! Did you know that funds from the CPOP and license plate fund help animal shelters specifically? Thanks to the generous CO residents who checked off a donation to this fund on their taxes, and for those who purchase a CPOP License Plate, this fund dispersed over $315,000.00 to shelters, funds ranging from $2K - $30K. These funds are specifically for veterinary/medical expenses. With your support, TGF benefitted by a $4000.00 grant from this fund. This helps us offset the cost of veterinary care for our birds, especially those from hoarding, animal control, cruelty, shelter transfers and relinquishments that are unable to provide any funding to assist TGF's veterinary costs. Thank you CO animal and bird lovers.Help prevent unwanted pet births by donating on your income tax form to the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund. www.savecoloradopets.org ... See MoreSee Less

Eagle scout Ryan Read gathered the other members of his troop, taught them how to make large bird toys, and made the most wonderful truck-full of bird toys you can imagine. They got a production line going and surpassed our dreams by making over 250 toys in just one day. Our flock is so grateful that Ryan chose to work with us for his Eagle Scout project and make much needed large bird enrichment. Thank you to your entire troop for all of your hard work! ...

Attention music aficionados! Higgins would love to share his interest in jazz and blues with just the right person. Higgins is a wild caught Timneh African Grey parrot, purchased in 1983 from a now closed pet store. Wild caught Grey parrots were widely imported into the bird sales market before the Wild Bird Conservation Act went into effect in 1992. Higgins is a hoot, from the whistling with vibrato and a gravelly voice to the sounds of fingers snapping and of course his fondness for jazz and blues. Along with his taste in music Higgins now enjoys a varied diet and requests that his new home has plenty of wood to shred, toilet paper rolls and cardboard to take apart, bite by bite. Invest in Higgin's trust and you will reap the rewards!

Hope he finds a wonderful forever home! His little face is so full of personality. I thought wild caught were less likely to pluck? What is his feather problem?

Love it. I play violin for the animals at the zoo and Marvel :)

I had a wild caught B&G, my best buddy. Miss him every day. Dr.s estimate he was 40-50 at the time of his passing based on his band #. He was a rescue with an unknown history. All we had was band # and what quarantine station he came from with a approximation of what year he passed through.

Timnehs are wonderful birds. We had a wildcaught TAG years ago (had come from the shelter) that was the most loving and loyal parrot after six months of gently gaining his trust. Wish we weren't so far away...in CA.

Aww hope he gets a good home!

He's beautiful! Wish I were closer

I fell in love with his personality while volunteering. He is a wonderful little guy. Sassy too!

I think I'm in love! TAG's are the best!
