There are so many birds sitting in shelters and rescues. Some parrots are surrendered because of life changes, and others are given up by owners who had no idea how demanding it can be to live with a “two-year-old with wings.” If you are seriously considering opening up your life to a parrot, please don’t overlook those that are in shelters waiting to be adopted into loving homes. They may not be the young little birds you could get from a breeder or pet store, but they do need the same love and care and still offer many years of companionship. Jessica Hagedorn
