Welcome to GreyBird.club
– a place for parrots and their peeps –
We strive to be a place where people dedicated to the conservation of all parrots, along with the people who love and live with them every day, come together to learn and to share knowledge in the hope of making a better world for parrots.
Did you know
Some parrot species can live up to 60 to 70 years with the average family keeping them two to four years. Many people desire to own an exotic bird, but very few are capable of coping with their special needs.
When the novelty of keeping an exotic “pet” wears off, many birds become victims of neglect or abuse; they are isolated to basements, passed from home to home, relinquished to shelters or simply abandoned. Others end up in breeding facilities that resemble little more than warehouses in which birds are held in barren cages for mass production. There are no legal standards to govern bird production facilities.
These birds are extremely intelligent, some with the intelligence level of a 4 to 5 year old child. Parrots that live in our homes are not pets but lifelong companions that require a lot of attention and mental stimulation if they are to flourish.
If you have done your homework and still want to share your life with a parrot, please consider adopting a parrot from a rescue. If you are unsure of where to find a rescue, contact me. I will be happy to help you find the closest rescue in your area.
Our obsession with parrots has come with a price. As a group, parrots are the most endangered of all birds. Of the estimated 330 living parrot species, almost 1/3 are considered to be threatened or endangered.
