I am August Abbott, certified avian specialist and owner of N.CA Parrot Rescue - now called Broken Birds Sanctuary. ALL of the birds here have been handicapped/disabled, maimed by abuse.

I have a blind bird who suffered two broken legs and a broken jaw; I have a gorgeous Scarlet macaw with both legs dislocated and fractured into a gnarled mess. These birds came here scared to death, trying to understand why they couldn't do (or be) what they used to.

I would like to work with you at keeping your disabled 'tiel and giving her a very good life in spite of it.
