Outreach & Events Request Form

Thank you for your request to have The Gabriel Foundation participate in your event. We are excited about the opportunity to provide information regarding our programs, parrots and the focus of our programs about parrot welfare. We believe that it is important to share our knowledge and expertise about parrots to educate the public about the specialized needs of companion parrots.
  • Please give us more information about why you have invited The Gabriel Foundation to participate in your event.
  • Parrots are beautiful, outgoing and social animals which are some of the reasons people have been fascinated by them for thousands of years. Parrots can be loud, messy and destructive. Yes, ALL parrots talk – but that means that they communicate. Not all parrots use our “words”. Yes, ALL parrots can bite, so it’s our job to learn respectful behavior towards them. We expect that you do the same. Yes, MOST parrots fly. Some of our parrots have their flight feathers trimmed while others are fully flighted. Many of the parrots at The Gabriel Foundation are comfortable around adults and children, but not 100% of the time. Although tame, parrots are still considered wild animals. The safety and well being of our parrots always comes first. The Gabriel Foundation does not provide birds for your entertainment reasons. The Gabriel Foundation provides staff and/or volunteers to handle all birds present. Any interaction between the public and our birds is at the complete discretion of our employees or designated representative(s) and volunteers. Thank you for your interest. Due to the volume of requests we receive, we are unable to provide outreach services free of cost. Once your application is received The Gabriel Foundation will provide you with a program fee cost to provide outreach services for your requested event. We look forward to working with you to create a successful learning opportunity.

Hawkeye is a 38-year old Panama Amazon that hatched in Panama and lived with the same family for his entire life, moving with them to the United States. He came to us last December when his family, who dearly loved him, were not able to care for him anymore. Hawkeye quickly became known for being a virtuoso singer.

Jennifer came to us interested in adopting an Amazon parrot after her own amazon had passed away earlier this year. She had cared for that parrot, a wild-caught red-lored amazon, for 20 years. She found herself missing his company and decided that she'd like to provide a home to another amazon in need.

We thought that, given her many years of experience with an amazons, Hawkeye might be a good match. The two hit it off right away and, this weekend, Hawkeye and Jennifer started their new adventure together. We want to wish them many years and many songs of happiness!
