Available Birds

Exotic Bird Rescue takes in parrots of all sizes and species. We accept birds regardless of their appearance or health conditions. Just like humans, each parrot has its own unique and wonderful personality. We believe there is a perfect loving family for each and every bird we take in and we are dedicated to finding that perfect match.


You might be curious where our birds come from. The term "rescue" is a little mis-leading as most of our birds are not actually rescued. The majority of our adoptable birds are placed in EBR's care by loving owners that can no longer care for their feathered friends. Some of the most common reasons for an owner relinquishing a bird is due to the owners failing health or the need to move to a home not appropriate for a parrot. These birds are generally well adjusted and make wonderful companions.


Some of our birds have been rescued from neglectful or less than ideal situations. These birds are placed in carefully selected foster homes and provided what ever medical and emotional care they need. Our foster families work carefully with behavioral specialists, veterinarians and other volunteers to provide neglected birds with the support they need to become happy and healthy again.
