These birds are here permanently, in long-term boarding, or otherwise not available for adoption.

Most of them live in the shelter, but a few are house pets.
Angelica and Fergison are a pair of wild-caught Red-Lored Amazons who are in sanctuary at the request of their previous keeper. They came from Kansas in 2009
Wonko (formerly Taco) is a male Blue-crown Mealy Amazon. He's the most mellow and easily handled amazon I've ever had. I changed his name because blue-front Mealys are from Guatemala and tacos aren't.
Casey Congo grey is a long-time house-mate of Ziggy's, going back through two previous homes, and went through Katrina with him. She's going to be with us permanently now.

Kozmo is a female Buffon's (Great Green) macaw. She came from Peoria. She's staying just because she loves me so much
Rojo greenwing and Uve hyacinth came to us from Texas in October of 2017. They're odler birds who've been together for 40 years. They'll be staying here as ambassador/education birds.
