Galilee Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary

Update posted by Rececca Biderman On Aug 17, 2019

The new arrival came today. Lorie. She is the sweetest 10-year-old girl....but....she is blind. I'm not even sure her owners knew this. One thing is for sure they loved her and cried when they left her with me.

If an African Grey is acclimated to their cage and surrounding you might not know or notice something isn't right. They kept telling me 'she is scared'. No, those big eyes are not full of fear they are without vision.

Lorie doesn't turn her head towards movements. She does not look at objects. She searches for things with an open beak. If she hears a noise she turns her head towards the noise. She can even be touched and doesn't know that you are going to touch her. No wonder she is a feather plucker. She breaks my heart.

Lorie will be here forever. With time, trust, and patience I hope to make her world a happier, safer place in which she will thrive.

It's going to be ok Lorie you are home now.

The owners of Lorie did donate NIS200 about $56 that will be saved towards the HEPA filter that's needed for the bird-room

There's been a new permanent member join the flock.

This African Grey goes by the name Jako. Jako is Hebrew for African Grey, so in all honesty this bird has no name.

Jako is blind in one eye from an infection that cause him to loose sight in this eye. Because he's lost the vision in that eye his balance is off. He has trouble stepping from the bars of the cage back to his perch. He has walked off his perch when moving to his left (his left eye is blind). He doesn't like to be on the floor because of his balance. He will not hold his food in his foot because of his blind eye. I have a lot of sympathy for Jako because while legally blind my dad began to loose his balance as the rest of his vision was lost with age. It's amazing how our eyes were created to work in harmony and when that harmony is lost we suffer. Jako is a handicapped parrot.

You can be part of this Grey's process by donating to build the needed aviary. The person who donates the largest sum during the campaign will get to choose a 'nice' name for Jako.

I've recently created a youtube channel for the Sanctuary that I will upload videos to, the first one is linked here.
