FLORIDA EXOTIC BIRD SANCTUARY INC
November 17, 2012

I placed my green cheeked conure with FEBS in the fall of 2010. I had adopted him three years prior and could not get his screaming under control. No matter how much attention I gave him, he wanted more. I felt that I was not giving him the best life he deserved and decided that being with other birds would probably be the best option for him. It has been wonderful for him. He is still the sweet little boy I know. But, he is in a better place with other green cheeks, and he can be just a bird. Up until recently, I also volunteered at FEBS one day a week. Feeding and interacting with the birds was such an enriching experience for me. I think I got more out of it than the birds. I hope to volunteer again in the future. As the popularity of exotic birds increases, there is going to be a need for places like FEBS. Birds live a long time and are a huge responsibility. FEBS is the standard by which bird sanctuaries should be measured. No breeding, no adoption, just a safe haven for birds to live out their lives and be with other birds. A great place!!!
