New arrival to M.A.R.S., and he is grand. Posted July 3, 2011 by LuAnn Apple


   Our newest arrival, Winston, a Grand Eclectus, was relinquished to Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary on Saturday.

   Winston was immediately given a beak trim, as the length was about to the bottom of where his head feathers are. A bath soon followed to access the feather issues.

   Turns out he enjoyed the entire process, and immediately went to everyone as if to say thank-you.

  Winston will be available for adoption here at M.A.R.S. as soon as he completes his rehabilitation period. Stay tuned for updates.

    M.A.R.S. relies on your donations to continue the work we do here. Please consider a donation to our cause.

    We are not sure what caused the problem, only that we are now providing a good diet lots of fresh air and sunshine, baths, and interactions with people and other birds. This alone seems to already be working.

    So cute!  He is so lucky to have wonderful people like you caring for him.

    Do you have any Red Lories available?

    We have had a few in the past but we do not have any at this time. Such characters the ones we have had here at MARS were so enjoyed them.
