Our birds are rescued or donated by individuals concerned for their condition or unable to care for them long-term. Many people acquire a tropical bird as part of a tropical lifestyle, without realizing that Amazon parrots may live for 50 to 60 years and the larger macaws may surpass 100. When owners understand how much attention these intelligent creatures demand and just how long the relationship may last, we often have another donation.
At Macaw Mountain we take our responsibility seriously and we house, care for and feed our birds at a very high standard. This is a commitment to which we are personally devoted. We believe the diligent care we offer these impressive wild creatures sends an important message that these species are indeed regional treasures.
Our birds provide visitors a nearly complete reference of the parrots and toucans found in Honduras as well as the chance to interact directly with the birds.
