One summer day a visitor to The Creature Conservancy asked lots and lots of questions about our rescued and abandoned birds he referred to as "McCalls". Little did he know we'd name their new paradise "McCalls of the Wild" - so appropriate when you hear them screech!

It's a lot more pleasant when they talk, however, and several of our birds have quite a vocabulary. Luckily, we've never heard anything we wouldn't repeat over the dinner table.

Currently just Fred, a blue and gold macaw, and his girlfriend Rico, a green-winged macaw, have a spot in McCalls of the Wild, but progress moves steadily forward toward enough perches and shelter for all seven of them! Meanwhile, on warm days you may find the other birds on perches in front of the clinic and kennel buildings.

Check back soon for more photos of their new daytime habitat as it nears completion.
