M.A.R.S. presents, “The Odd Couples”. Posted April 3, 2011 by LuAnn Apple


Sometimes when you least expect it, the unexpected happens

Bridy and Oz

at Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary. Saturday was such a day.

Everything seemed a little bit to quiet, and you can see why, there was a lot of preening going on.
New arrival Baily, a Lesser Sulfer Crested Cockatoo, was soon to have a new friend Doc, an Umbrella Cockatoo, who not only allowed the preening but introduced Baily to his favorite mulberry tree. They had a fun day together here at M.A.R.S.
Big Bird and Stubbs, well there is no rhyme or reason for that pairing.  A Yellow Naped Amazon, and an Umbrella Cockatoo, who knew what great buddies they would become.

Doc and Baily

Then there was Oz, a Moluccan Cockatoo, and the Triton Cockatoo we named Bridy.
Last, but not least Bitsy and Ben, two Ducorps Cockatoos. They are just plain odd all the way around.
Hope you enjoy our Saturday pics from our Florida Parrot Rescue M.A.R.S.. Please consider a donation to support the members of M.A.R.S.. Remember don’t Shop! Adopt!
