Facts about Tequila

  • Breed: Macaw
  • Color: Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
Hey! I am Tequilla, the Scarlet Macaw. I have laid an egg, so everyone knows I am a female. I am over 30, but my exact age is unknown. I used to live in the same cage as a cockatoo, it was crowded but we got along okay. My previous family had some financial problems and I lost my home suddenly in the middle of the winter. Fortunately, Beak n Wings had room to take me and my friend in, because it was cold! I was underweight and had rubbed most of my head feathers off. With a good diet and some lovely baths my feathers have grown back and I’m gorgeous. When it comes to people, I prefer the company of men. It does take me a little time to get used to new people, but once I settle in I am very friendly. I will even let my foster father hold me like a baby in a towel. I have no bad habits. Did I mention I was gorgeous? I am looking for someone who can appreciate how special I am and give me a good home. Adoption fee: $750.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
