Planned Parrothood® can no longer in good conscience recommend any one particular US avian rescue facility due to unprecedented and unethical incidents that are occurring even though there are some really excellent rescue and re-homing facilities out there which I'll try to list here. Your feedback will help to assess those who should be on this list. Meanwhile, I suggest these PARROT PLACEMENT TIPS when the need arises to place a bird.

|PARROT TRIVIA: What amazing nest-building technique does the tailor bird use? The golden-headed cisticola (or "tailor bird") of Australia collects spiderwebs and uses them to sew together its nest! This small bird, Cisticola exilis, uses its beak as a drill to make tiny holes in leaves and grass blades. Then it carefully separates the strands of a spiderweb and threads the web through the holes, pulling it tight by hovering and backing away. The whole operation takes about five days. When it's done, the bird has a neat, cozy nest!|
