You've got to see it to believe it!
The Trained Alexandrines have been performing faithfully for 15 years here at Parrots In Paradise, and prior to that we traveled all over for 5 years.
They have happily worked for many bus groups and visitors over the years. In that time we used positive reinforcement, rewarding them with praise and treats after a trick. Our parrots were never punished when they did not perform.
Knowing the birds are having a ball is great fun for the young and old. The bird's ability to solve puzzles and evidence of cognitive thought has to be seen to be believed.
But time has taken it's toll on not only the parrots but also on the humans.
So it was decided to do one final show for a professional vidographer in order to capture all of the show in spite of our losing one of our parrot team to a stroke and another to cataracts.
The Videographer was able to cobble in the missing performers tricks thanks to old videos.
So now when you visit you get the show in it's entirety. Nothing is missed.
We can do nothing about Lena who was taken by the stroke. But Kelele, who has cataracts will, once he is fully blind, will be given an eye operation, because this bird gave faithfully of himself for 20 years, and he will likely live at least the same again, so he deserves to be able to see in that time. So we are saving to get the $4000 for his operation.

Parrots for Sale
As a breeding establishment and a safe haven for rescued birds, Parrots in Paradise often have companion birds for sale. We have a passion for Alexandrines and Eclectus parrots, but we also have several other varieties that we breed from time to time and are often asked to rehome rescued birds.
In many cases there is a waiting list.
Parrots are highly intelligent and need time and attention from their owner. Please think carefully, and do your research before offering your home to any parrot.
For more info, prices and available pets
wing clip, nail clip.
Wing Clip-it is important that it is done correctly and with as little discomfort to the bird as possible. A poor wing clip can render the bird damaged.
Beak trim too MUST be done correctly to prevent profuse bleeding, we can help here also.
Some of us can find the nails of our feathered friend can be way too sharp, so we can clip your birds nails for you, if you like.
We suggest that you get your bird used to an emery board while the family is relaxing, then this service might not be needed.
