Exotic Bird Rescue believes in the philosophy that most behavior problems in parrots are human-created.
When parrots are relinquished to us with behavior problems, often those problems disappear when handled by someone who doesn't

result of uncorrected habits or owner mishandling. EBR works to rehabilitate birds with behavioral issues that come to our
Our goal in making these birds good companions in people's homes is to work to eliminate those behavioral
problems that could prevent them from finding permanent placement. We offer support and training to our foster homes and to

part of the rehabilitation process is treating medical conditions that exist that can affect the longevity and overall health
of our birds. Every bird admitted to the organization receives a complete physical and fecal gramstain and any other treatment
deemed necessary by our avian veterinarians. Medical issues a bird is experiencing as well as poor diet, an unstimulating
