Exotic Birds

Cockatiels, African Grey's, Macaws, Amazons, Conures, Lovebirds and Parakeets (Budgies)


LovebirdsExotic birds are not native to Arizona so they are not considered "wildlife" but family pets can get loose, released and/or abandoned and injured.

If you have found a healthy exotic bird, posting flyers in your neighborhood may help find the owner. You can also check on-line lost and found pet sites like Pets911.

If the bird is injured, or you find an orphaned baby, click on the links to find out more or call a rehabber at Arizona Exotic Bird Rescue 1-928-710-3214




There are large colonies of Peach-Faced Lovebirds in the East Valley and they are spreading throughout the Phoenix area. They have learned to adapt to our environment.


These birds choose palm trees for nesting.


Please do not prune your palm trees in the springtime for many babies are left homeless and will perish if not rescued.




You can make a disposable heating pad by putting a cup or two of dry, uncooked rice in a plastic bag or old sock with a knot in the end and microwave it for 45 seconds.
