Facts about Ben

  • Breed: Conure
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
Ben is a blue crowned conure, approximately 13 years old. He has been well loved his whole life, but like many birds, his family decided they couldn’t give him enough time and attention. They check in with us regularly to see how he’s doing. He is such a sweetie, just don’t use your hands! Fingers are scary. He gladly steps onto a rope perch to go places.

Ben likes to say “whatcha doing?” "Pretty bird" and “I’m a good bird!” If you have a cat, he'll do a great job of calling "Here kitty kitty" We know you'll just fall head over heels for Ben when he turns on the charm!- all very endearing.

Ben has developed some very good eating habits, and runs to his fresh food bowl enthusiastically every morning. Nutriberries are also a big favorite! He has Harrison’s pellets on hand too, so he’s on a very good diet. Ben likes to spend a good deal of time outside the cage, and he enjoys the 36” dometop cage he lives in at The Landing so he can be up high too.


About Phoenix Landing Foundation Asheville NC

About Our Rescue Group...

The Phoenix Landing Foundation (PL) is a non-profit all-volunteer organization. PL promotes and protects the welfare of parrots, especially those with an extensive lifespan. We provide for parrots of all types in need, and act as advocates for those without protection. Visit our website at for more information. We also sponsor great educational seminars! All are welcome (please do not bring your birds or other pets). Most of PL's classes are free, although of course we always welcome donations.

Come Meet Our Pets...

.Most of our birds are being fostered in private homes in the MD, VA, NC, SC, and DC area. Sometimes, we have foster families bring their birds to these events for prospective adopters to meet them.

Our Adoption Process...

We require:
- An Adoption Application
- A brief in-Home Visit with you and your family (for birds larger than a cockatiel)
- Attendance at an Intro class (recommended for all, required for birds larger than a cockatiel). For large birds (macaws, cockatoos, amazons, greys, eclectus, etc.) we also require an Advanced class.
- An Adoption Fee (for birds larger than a cockatiel) -- adoption fees vary, larger birds have higher fees
