FEBS Arbor/Shade System

Happy Friday everyone. Today’s post is  about our new arbor/shade system being installed by The Phoenix Solution.

Due to the extreme heat here in Florida, we knew that we needed a covered walkway not only for visitors but our staff and volunteers as well. We are very pleased with this design and hope many of you come visit us this summer! Of course we made sure the birdies had shade and misters first! Looking forward to a nice summer!

Welcome, Sinbad & Shalimar!

These 2 beautiful Yellow Collared Macaws just arrived yesterday. Their owners drove them all the way from Texas to spend the rest of their life here at FEBS! They can’t wait for them to join the flock of mini macaws!

Ekkie Flights in Progress

This week we are excited to announce that the Flights for our Male and Female Eclectus is coming along on schedule.  We want to thank Andrew, owner of “The Phoenix Solution” for the hard work he and his team are doing to get these wonderful new homes ready for the Eclectus.

The Eclectus are special in that mature females do not do well in flocks but through research we have found that in the wild they are the only Parrot that changes mates about every 11 years.  Immature females will stay together until a mate is found.  They also have a tendency to bully their mates so having 2 or 3 males with a female is a much desired arrangement for this species.  Due to the specific nature of the Eclectus, many are misunderstood and do tend to start plucking their feathers out of frustrations.  As beautiful as the Eclectus are, they usually do not make very good pet birds.  We wish to thank the donors that helped build these very special flight cages.  Please watch for the updates and pictures of the completed flights and the birds that are surely going to enjoy them!

Matching Funds Campaign Complete!

We have met our goal for the matching funds campaign and have raised $10,000!  These funds will go a long way to help raise the large flight aviaries in Hudson.  A huge thank you to everyone who contributed and especially to the Wilkins family.  Thank you again for helping us reach our goals and enable us to get as many birds moved into the large flight aviaries as possible.  Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year from FEBS!

FEBS wishes you and your families a Happy New Year!  We have done so much in 2015 and can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for us. This past year we have moved over 300 birds from Wesley Chapel to the Hudson location.  In 2016 we plan to move the remainder of the birds to Hudson and continue to erect large free flight aviaries to move groups of birds into.  Thank you for your support this past year and together we will shine in 2016!

“Our beautiful eclectus parrot was so lonely even with us home all day we could tell she wanted desperately to be around other birds so I found FEBS and called Pat. Right away I could tell she was the person to take care of my sweet Lola. It broke my heart to think of being without Lola but she wasn’t as healthy as she would be in the Florida climate. Pat spent time preparing a cage for Lola before she arrived and I talked to Pat several times after Lola arrived to make sure everything was smooth for her. Pat took Lola in and “babysat” her! She even had a video of Lola on you tube! I miss Lola everyday and we visit when we can but I know shes healthy and happy where she is now. Thank you Pat, your family and all your volunteers who work so hard for these beautiful birds!”
