Mission: Sedona

By Giselle Stancic

After hearing the sad news about long-time volunteer Louisa Jaskulski’s passing, the Mickaboo community turned its attention to rehoming the Mickaboo alumni birds that Louisa had lovingly cared for.

A Home for the Holidays: Bird the Severe Macaw

By Dena Witkes

Shortly before the holiday season, Mickaboo learned of Bird, a Severe Macaw, whose human had moved out of state and left him behind. Bird was temporarily housed in a family member’s apartment, but he was not receiving the care and attention he needed to thrive. The report was that Bird “wasn’t happy” and that if a new home wasn’t found before the holidays, Bird could be left without adequate care for weeks. View in a new window
