Mollywood Avian Sanctuary

Arrived at the sanctuary in 2009 after her owner passed away and no one in the family wanted her. 2 months after she arrived, she started spewing blood out of her mouth and nose. The veterinarian discovered high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a heart murmur and a small piece of metal stuck in her gizzard. They got Chicky’s medical situation under control and she’s been great ever since.

Sadly, Chicky passed away 4 days after we photographed her.

Mollywood thanks you all for your support this year, and invites you to visit the website of our amazing photographer friend, Oliver Regueiro, who tells the stories of captive parrots like Chicky in the photo above!

Fearing they were too late, the firefighting crew jimmied the truck door open and Rusty’s owner, Joanne Ruth Doyle, grabbed his cage and took it inside.

Rusty, a 19-year-old cockatoo, was lying on his stomach with his wings spread out and Doyle feared he was dead.

Heartfelt Thoughts from a Reformed Parrot Breeder
by Tina Usher, The Parrot’s Perch

EXCERPTS I'm Tina Usher, and all of my life I have been captivated by all types of birds. First, I would like to give you some of my history. I own and operate The Parrot’s Perch, a small homebased aviary just outside of Chicago, IL. I have been breeding and raising Moluccan, Umbrella and Medium Sulphur Crested (Elenora) Cockatoos, Green Wing Macaws and African Greys ...

How can I justify bringing more birds into a world where ...    <Read entire article>
