Facts about Harvey

  • Breed: Amazon
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
Hello, my name is Harvey. I am an Orange Wing Amazon, and I am over 30 years old, which is middle aged for an Amazon. I can't remember too much of my early life, but I was imported from South America and ended up in a pet store in Kansas. A very nice lady in town was building a pond, and she came in my store many times to by supplies. I took to her right away, talking and flirting, and after a while she took me home with her. I spent 27 very happy years with her. She took excellent care of me, and gave me lots of attention. Sadly, she was getting older (almost 80) and decided she needed to find another home for me. Everyone at Beak n Wings has been impressed with my temperament. I am easy going and friendly. I am settling in my foster home well. I have been used to eating veggies and healthy table foods, but I have discovered I love ZuPreem pellets too! I will be available for adoption after 1/11/17. Adoption fee $250.

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.
