Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Macaw
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
CHARLIE, 42 Year old Blue and Gold Macaw
Charlie has been in a Wilmington, NC area foster home for many years. Being a bit out of the way, he hasn't had a chance to meet many people and find a more committed home.
While he is talkative in the morning, Charlie is overall a quiet bird. He spends a great deal of time on his large tree porch on a screened in porch and gets lots of healthy sunshine exposure. He gets regular baths standing on a perch in a walk-in shower. He eats a healthy diet of pellets, fresh veggies and fruit, eggs and grains. While Charlie does not care to be scratched or petted, he will willingly step on on a stick and then on a human hand.

Charlie is seeking a good home with people who are able to appreciate and respect his reserved nature and who will allow him to have plenty of time outside his cage. 42 is not old for a macaw, but being long past puberty, Charlie has a calmer personality. He currently enjoys lots of time out of his cage, enjoying fresh air on a porch. We'd sure like to see him continue to enjoy as much freedom as possible


About Phoenix Landing Foundation Wilmington 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
