My family and I became interested in FEBS when we realized our large cockatoo was not a happy bird and needed to be around other birds like herself. We discovered FEBS on the internet and after visiting, we placed our pet, Cammy Sue, with Pat Norton, the administrator. That was over two years ago. My daughter and son-in-law go there every other month, taking enough fresh fruits and vegetable to feed all the birds for at least a month. I send food also, from PetSolutions and Drs. Foster & Smith websites. Since I am 73, I have not visited a whole lot, but this bird sanctuary is Tops. The birds are all well fed, their habitats kept clean, fresh water given daily and Pat observes them all on a daily basis. She is trained as a bird vet assistant and has done this for many years. She truly is dedicated to the birds and is a special person proving to my family that her main interests are for the birds and not for herself. In the heat of the summer, misters are set on a timer to keep the birds cool. In the winter heat lamps are used with cage blankets to offset the cold. Presently, the sanctuary is in need of expansion. I hope and deeply pray, that someone with land they don't need in the country, will consisder donating it to the sanctuary. There is a large list of birds waiting to be placed here, but there isn't room for them. Birds from all around the USA are residents now and I LOVE those beautiful creatures. They are so entertaining and tallented.
