Welcome, Sinbad & Shalimar!

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.

phoenix-solution

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!

Fundraiser and Blog Update

Hi All,

We have lots going on at FEBS this week.  Number one, thank you for all of the generous donations towards our Matching Funds and Go Fund Me Campaigns!  We’ve raised $3100 towards our $5000 goal for the Matching Funds Campaign sponsored by the Wilkins family.  The Wilkins family advised us to use the money wherever it’s needed most.  Any donations made towards any fundraiser from Dec 1 to Dec 31st will be doubled up to $5000 for the Matching Funds.  If you have entered your donation towards the Go Fund Me site rest assured it will be doubled until we meet our $5000 matching funds goal.  Thank you all for your help and everything you do!

We are also working on migrating our blog from FloridaExoticBirdSanctuary.Wordpress.com over to our FlaBirdSanctuary.com main website.  Please go to FlaBirdSanctuary.com and make sure you are following the blog from this page.  Please provide us feedback if you do not receive our posts on Wednesdays and Fridays.   Because so much has been going on lately we may be posting more frequently in the week in addition to the normal days.  Looking forward to communicating more with all of you and keeping you connected to FEBS.

And here are your cute pics for the day.  Enjoy!
