ANIMAL CARE UPDATE:
Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) was confirmed in Texas this spring, by Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD). We are taking every precaution to keep our parrots safe & healthy. Until recently, all our birds were kept behind the scenes, away from outdoor habitats & public access, but now slowly are returning rotationally on a limited basis, as guidance changes.
We continue to follow revised recommendations from the USDA & TPWD to help stop spread of this deadly virus among birds. Human infection of HPAI is rare. However, they unknowingly can carry airborne or solid contamination on shoes or clothing, to bird habitats.
We continue to monitor HPAI closely adjusting protocols accordingly. Please visit our parrots often. They are glad to see you again.
Private Parrot Interactions & Parrot Talk programs still are suspended, (though our website still may contain references to parrots or these temporarily suspended programs).
