Mardi Gras

On Saturday, March 3, 2012, Phoenix Landing hosted its 5th Annual Mardi Gras!  This event is intended for potential adopters to meet a wide variety of adoptable birds and learn about different species.  We had a range of parrots there from parakeets to cockatoos.  There were parakeets, cockatiels, a Quaker, a Senegal, Conures, Lories, Meyers, Amazons and Cockatoos.

Meet some of the parrots looking for new adoptive homes:

Riley, a Black Capped Lory

Xavier and Tootie, Meyers

Kiwi, a Senegal

Luke, an Umbrella Cockatoo

Gabe, a Jenday conure

The event was attended by lots of people and lots of birds went to new approved homes where we are hoping they will be a match and get adopted. In order for birds to move to new homes from this event, you must have already submitted your application, attended a required class and had a home visit done.  For more information about this process, please visit our website at:

At each Phoenix Landing event we sell supplies and usually have a raffle to benefit the parrots of Phoenix Landing.
