    *This was my reply in another thread, but I wanted to put the pictures here too, so everybody will see them!*

    I don't own any parrots myself, but I work for a lady who has about forty rescues! I'm there so often I feel like they are mine!

    She has moloccun(sp?) cockatoos, sulfur cockatoos, a green wing macaw, two african greys, rose breasted cockatoo, indian ringneck, alexandrian, Parakeets, cockatiels, lovebirds, conures, and a bunch of others that I can't remember the names of! She also has a beautiful cage full of fancy finches! It's amazing how many people have unwanted birds! And they all have such wonderful personalities. It's amazing how a bird can come in completely afraid of you, and later want to be your best friend! I have a few pictures of them too:

    Thank you! I would love to actually adopt one of her birds one day, but for now I'll have to be content working for her!

    Unfortunately a lot of the birds she receives come from stressful situations, so as you can see in some pics, they bite their feathers. It's unfortunate because once they start, it's hard to get them to stop.

    What beautiful birds! I had a patagonian conure for a few years and managed to adopt him out! I had no clue what absolute slobs they are! Plus he only liked guys and would bite down on me really hard! I still love birds though and someday would like to get a gray amazon...
