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.

Come and visit our Shop! With an increasing number of birds being surrendered by the community and rescued by Parrots in Paradise we needed a way to help with the ever increasing costs involved. You may be surprised to know that when a parrot is surrendered we have to find it a flight to live in (costing around $400), a partner for the bird, along with food and general care. Then there are the vet bills: avian vet bills are bills to end all bills!
To help offset these costs the shop was created as a way for our visitors to purchase great products while helping to support the ongoing running of Parrots in Paradise. 100% of all sales go to supporting the birds. Scroll down and see some of our more popular items. There are many beautifully handcrafted items that have been donated.
Magnets for the family! Cards for birthdays and postcards for everyone back home.
