Huh?? Huh?? My name is Maugwa!! I am a Yellow Crown Amazon. I am not really sure of my age. Beak n Wings rescued me from a hoarding situation in 2008. I went to live with a nice foster lady who had a wonderful cockatoo that I fell in love with. This was not a healthy relationship for me so I went to live with my new foster family in 2012. I love to live out in the living room with my foster family and be an important member of the flock. I want lots of different types of treats and people food so my foster mommy has to be careful of what she gives me since I will eat almost anything. On the weekends I enjoy visiting the Beak n Wings store and spending time with all the people and my friends. But, my mommy always keeps me away from all of the cockatoos because I will get too excited and jealous of the other birds around the cockatoos. I am a very happy little boy. I love to wave my head, spin around, and dance in the corner of my cage. My foster mommy is always telling me what a good baby I am. I am learning it is ok to be pet on the back of my head and neck. I always step up when my mommy wants me to. And I do not bite. Adoption fee: $400.

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.
