Making Foraging Toys at FEBS

This past Saturday we had a great time putting together some foraging toys for the birdies at FEBS.  Foraging toys help keep parrots active and happy while they work for their treats.  We put pineapple, strawberries, apple (no seeds), bananas, blackberries and sweet potato in the toys.  Here are some pics of what the finished products looked like and some of the birdies enjoying them.

Thank You Taqueria del Sol!

A big thank you to Tony, Javier, and Team Taqueria del Sol for the very generous donation of their old patio weather wraps to our sanctuary.  At 8 ft high and 65 ft long they fit perfectly around the space our sweet special needs birds are staying in until their flight is built.  What an awesome way to help FEBS!  Please head over to their Facebook link below and give a like and a thank you to this great group!

Winter is here…

Winter is here and it’s getting chilly at night!  Check out what staff member Bobbi Armour is making for some of the birds at FEBS that are lacking their full feathers coats.  Keeping these birds warm is a priority in the cold weather however it is amazing how adaptable these parrots are and Florida is the perfect tropical atmosphere for them to thrive in.  Bobbi made these out of baby clothes which she cut the arms out of to allow space for the wings.  How inventive and helpful!  Thank you Bobbi!!! 🙂

Thank you to Associated Construction Products!

We would like to give a great big THANK YOU to Larry Falls and his company ASSOCIATED CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS for donating 72 pallets of pavers that were taken up from some restaurants in Tampa.  Larry and his men packed them up, shrink wrapped them and delivered them to the Hudson Sanctuary.  We are so grateful for these pavers, they will be used to create walkways in front of aviaries for volunteers ease of feeding and for tour.  What a wonderful way to start the new year!
