(Editor’s note: This article was written by the volunteer who led this Mickaboo rescue.)
Back in March of this year, Mickaboo was contacted by an elderly lady who had two birds she wanted to rehome. I offered to visit her and meet the birds to learn more about them so we could begin to help. View PDF in new window

Featured Volunteers: Chloe Redon & John Graziano

 By Shauna Hill

In this newsletter I want to introduce you to a couple of awesome volunteers, Chloe Redon and John Graziano, who started by helping with the technology side of Mickaboo, and ended up helping with the sick/injured members of the wild conure flocks of San Francisco, made famous by the book and movie “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill”. They have really helped Mickaboo expand its website, and their work with the wild conures has helped many of these magnificent birds. They also created and delivered advanced education classes to help our volunteers care for the many birds under Mickaboo’s wing. View PDF in a new window
