Rescue Me ID: 14-10-27-00574Persian Pigeon

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy 

    Landed on someone's doorstep in Winchester, VA last summer who adopted it out past October to me. Posting said: 'Sweet thing and friendly', but it pecks and bites (even though it cannot break your skin on hand or arms it can be annoying). It likes to fly, walk around, sit anywhere in the house, sometimes follow you or prance around shoes and feet wearing socks (it is friendly then). You can pick it up, very tame and funny, says 'Buck-buck-ooo!' all the time - but don't let it get too close to your face. Internet says it's a 'Persian High flying Tumbler' - 'Iran 2006' printed on yellow leg band. It comes with a large parrot cage (branches, ... (Read More)but needs platforms installed, as pigeons prefer flat surfaces). Lady told me her mom had let it flutter around outside, it came back to her when called. By spring it would probably be used to someone enough to do that. I am a little concerned about falcons and feral cats possibly preying on it though. There are so-called pigeon-pants change every 3 hrs, then it can be taken out and sit on shoulders, furniture etc without making a mess. Those pants are $35 each online, which I do not want to spend. I am just asking for the cash that I paid, plus the food mix I purchased. If you want a pigeon, have time to spend with it or possibly have one or more pigeons - this might be a good match. It is friendly with this toy in the picture and anything looking like a bird (my son's feet wearing white socks do look like a pigeon). Thank you. Please pick up with a truck, cage is huge. Or buy a rectangular Rabbit cage or dog crate and just get the pigeon in a box or carrier. If I had more patience I would say it is a neat pet, looks very nice, everyone asks what kind of a bird it is due to coloring and size (fluffs up and lifts up the wings, looks like a big bird).

Animal ID: 'PRECIOUS'Goffin's Cockatoo (female)

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    I am rehoming a loveable Goffin's Cockatoo. She is about 8 years old, loves people and attention, and loves to be on your lap or shoulder. She talks, dances, and says pretty bird, step up, laughs and barks like a dog. My work situation has changed and with worsening asthma, she is not getting the attention she needs and deserves. Goffins are very affectionate and want to be with their people, and out of their cage much of the time. She would do well with someone with large bird experience, who is home much of the time, and ideally as an only bird since can be jealous of other birds. I am looking for a forever home, preferably without cats ... (Read More)or aggressive dogs. Goffins like other cockatoos, can be loud at times if they aren't getting the attention that they need. On the other hand, they are extremely affectionate, funny, and have a lot of personality. I am asking a reasonable rehoming fee which includes her cage. Thanks. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bird in Virginia
    Birds can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. Exotic tropical birds such as Parrots and Cockatiels, as well as Finches, Doves, Pigeons, and other varieties, are often kept in captivity as beautiful and interesting pets. Unfortunately, many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, while others experience life changes that may leave their pets without a suitable home. Captive birds can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, and many other problems when they do not receive proper care. Many wild exotic birds are endangered as a result of the international pet trade. Non-profit bird sanctuaries provide homes for some birds for whom their owners can no longer provide care. However, many more of these birds need to be adopted by committed owners who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for the birds. A person who is ready for the responsibility of owning a bird should seriously consider adopting one rather than buying a new one.

lnteresting Bird Trivia Low-Cost Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Parrots mimic humans but do not mimic any other kind of animal in the wild. The use of nonstick cookware can be extremely toxic to parrots living in the home. Exotic birds can live to be over 60 years old.
