An anonymous donor has made a very generous donation and has offered up to $5,000 in matching funds to help purchase cage wire for our first free flight aviary at our new location! Please help us RAISE UP a new flight cage that will be twice the size of the current one at the Wesley Chapel location. This flight cage will be 80ft x 30ft x 20ft and house up to 100 macaws. We also have frames for 4 more cages that will be built for the Moluccans, Amazons, African Greys, Eclectus and our special needs feather plucking birds. In essence, your donation will be doubled. Every dollar donated will equal two dollars! Every donation will go directly to funding labor and cage wire for the new flights at our sister property in Hudson!

To the left is a picture of the Greenhouse frame that was donated. Our next step is getting the cage wire paid for! The total cost to enclose this huge FREE FLIGHT AVIARY will be about $15,000 dollars. Please see our blog for our continued progress of our RAISE THE FLIGHT matching funds campaign. Thank you greatly in advance for helping us help many more birds! Attached are pictures of the current flight in Wesley Chapel that houses 50 Macaws and the frames in Hudson that need cage wire. Together we CAN make this happen! Click here to donate now!

WESLEY CHAPEL — Patricia Norton grabbed a handful of peanuts and stepped into the 1,500-square-foot aviary, home to 42 macaws whose colors rival rainbows. She raised her arms and two blue and yellow birds imitated, lifting their wings in return for a treat. Along came 12-year-old green beauty named Fenix, who just wanted his head scratched.

FEBS Finds Perfect Property For Expansion!

After a long 2 year search, FEBS has finally found the perfect property for its desperately needed expansion. More importantly, we will be able to give ALL of the 370+ Parrots in our care flight cages! We will also be able to help many more Parrots on our waiting list! All of them are waiting for their chance to “Just Be A Bird”!

However, a project this massive is going to take lots of dedication and financial support! The staff, Officers, Board Members, and Volunteers are all committed to putting their all into the expansion and eventual relocation of the FEBS Parrots in our Lifelong Care Facility.

So we ask all of you, our loyal supporters, to please consider helping in any way you can! Sponsoring a flight cage is a really helpful part of the bigger vision and we really need you guys, the Bird Family’s and Friends of our flock!

Please consider that this project will cost an estimated $150,000! Currently we have raised $60,000 of that amount needed, which we are eternally grateful for! If you or a business that you own are able to help or if you know of anyone who may be able to help FEBS please contact Patricia Norton (A.K.A. The Birdmother) at 813-545-5406 or simply click on the Big Blue Feather to the right to donate (tax deductible) funds toward this very important project!

Tour The Sanctuary!
Testimonial of Lisa MacDonnell, Concord, MA
I am the proud owner of Skipper, a 12 year old Blue-Crowned Conure that my daughter, Sarah, and I acquired when he was 4 months old from a local pet shop in Massachusetts.  Skipper immediately became a beloved member of our family.  Sarah was 6 years old when we brought Skipper home, and he fell in love with her.  Skipper was also great pals with our dog, Nicki, but ultimately, he was my bird and he loved and trusted me above all others… Click here to read more...
