Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Training, Animals, Bird Sanctuaries, Environment, Environmental Beautification, Protection of Endangered Species

Mission: We are committed to saving the lives of abused parrots. Many of the parrots in our care would have been euthanized if we did not take them into our sanctuary. People have inflicted horrible painful acts to these parrots. We provide a forever home for these parrots because their life experiences have left them untrusting towards most people and essentially not candidates for adoption. Our sanctuary is run completely by volunteers. This allows 100% of all donations to be used strictly for the care of the birds at our sanctuary.

Results: We currently provide a home for 30 birds. There are several calls a week from people trying to find a home for their parrot who has become "unmanageable" and they state the other option for their bird is to "drop it off at the pound". We would like to expand our facility in order to provide a loving forever home to more parrots in need. We do not want to face a situation where we have to turn a bird in need away.

Target demographics: We are committed to saving the lives of abused parrots and providing them with their final forever home. We help them build self confidence and allow them to grow in an environment of unconditional love.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We saved and adopted 16 parrots over the last year.

Geographic areas served: We work with the Humane Society, Police, and Animal control agencies in Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Butte, Sutter, Solano and Napa Counties of California.

Programs: We provide educational programs to the community, in particular, teaching children about the needs of parrots.

They are darlings! Mr Michael and his pretty wife Diane. I’ve been having a horrid time with my macaw Ruby. They were right there to help us. Gave me piece of mind that they will let her come to parrot camp there. I know they would spoil her and love her! Michael just has a way with birds. The bird whisperer. They even bought Ruby a cage and would not take a dime for it. With them it’s not the dollar it’s the bird. I just wasn’t brave enough to part with Ruby. Maybe later. She took a chunk out of my cheek. Probably plastic surgery to be done. They both talked me through it and calmed me AND Ruby down. I vote 150percent for them! Plus Michael is a wonderful musician and the birds love his songs. I know I surely do!

We have been friends with the loving operators of this sanctuary for many years. Not only do they care so much for their parrots, they also provide excellent assistance and feedback for parrot folks as well.

I’ve known Michael for 30 years and visited his bird sanctuary when he was in California. He passionately loves his birds ... he is constantly talking to them, they get personal attention and playtime out of their cages. New birds are treated with loving care. The local animal agencies called him to place rescued birds. Personally, he is kind hearted, very positive with a great outlook about life, and concerned about our global planet.

Global Nest Exotic Bird Sanctuary... They are so incredible that I cannot say enough great things about them! I have had birds in my life for 45 years and I can honestly say that I can count on one hand the number of people (sanctuaries) that I would completely trust, with no hesitation at all!!! Not only are Michael and Dianne 2 of the most incredible people that I have ever known, they are a true gift to birds and all animals! They are so dedicated and passionate about their wellbeing and providing the very best of care. It is just in their nature, it is who they are. The birds and animals could not ask for any better...they are family members! They have found their way to absolute paradise where they are very loved, for always. In this world where animals are treated as disposable items, I know that at Global Nest they are valuable, sentient beings that are treated with kindness, compassion, devotion and a deep respect and love. One only has to look into the eyes of Michael and Dianne and the birds to see the bond between them, the loyalty and trust are obvious. The birds and animals instinctively know that they are safe...they are "home". The world and its birds/animals are very lucky to have Global Nest... I cannot recommend them enough for all that they do...I cannot thank them enough! So if one wonders to which non profit to contribute to, Global Nest will ALWAYS be the most deserving, they make such a difference in this world. Thank you Global Nest...you are appreciated and loved!!!

I have had the advantage of working with and personally knowing the Directors of Global Nest Sanctuary. Global Nest gives 100% from the very depths of their being. These birds that live here have lived with demons placed upon them to burden even the strongest of survivors with a heavy heart. Michael is able to break through these barriers with love and trust to give these tortured souls relief. To watch them deprived of love and affection learn to open themselves up to the love they are given. The transformation is tear jerking!!

My story is a little different. These too, Michael and Diane Cox, are THE MOST GIVING SOULS EXISTING on our lovely planet! The drive no matter how far, difficult, or their own health, to save a bird, will happen. The interaction theses guys have with all their babies, Begins like this, you talk to and love them heart to heart. He tells me you must contact yours to theirs. Not only birds are safe and homed well, turtles, snakes, dogs, No one turned away. They have rescued me!! To do a death they right now are letting my 2 macaws camp w then till my heart heals! Again NO BETTER TWO THEN MICHAEL N DIANE. I owe a great deal of LOVE, RESPECT, &HONOR!!!
Oh did I say they are cute funny n kind tooo.

Having never been to a bird sanctuary, I was amazed at how much it took to have a great one. From the water filtration, the beautiful food, nuts, seeds, etc that is bought & prepared daily, the generator for backup to always maintain temp they need, to the love & attention that is so generously given to each one! And ETC.....as I only named a few. I know for a fact, Global Nest is the best, happy, safe home & I am honored to know Michael, Dianne, the wing ones, 4 legged ones, lizards, etc... Thank you for being YOU, bird guy & lady bird!

Michael is amazing, he takes a bird (or any animal!!) with a broken spirit & brings them back to the majestic, beautiful & confident creatures they were meant to be. But he doesn’t stop there; he offers his love, guidance & expertise to anybody & everybody who needs his help or advice. Did I mention that Michael is amazing?? He truly is. Thank you so much, Michael ♥️

Michael is so amazing with birds, and I’ve never met anyone who cares as much as he does!! He drove over an hour to meet me and my bird and offered to help us with vet costs if we needed it. We need more bird lovers like him in our world!!!

Michael is a very loving bird owner. He knows their language and is able to reach into the birds minds to unite as one.

He and his wife are a remarkable people.
