Tiki Isle Rescue & Rehab

Tiki Isle Rescue & Rehab is "for the birds."  No, really.  Jason Krueger has helped many exotic birds and nursed them back to good health.  I first met Jason many years ago at a 4-H small animal clinic at Marathon Park in Wausau, WI.  I was happy to see him this past Friday at the flea market. 



The smaller bird is 28 years old and the larger one is 11.  Did you know they can live to 80.  When Jason rescued the smaller one he had no feathers on his chest - he plucked them out along with his skin. He was left alone for years locked up by himself.  He was a real cutie.  The larger one said many words and liked to be held like a baby.  He even let you kiss him - those who know me, know I can't resist kissing all kinds of critters....

One sad story Jason told me was about a recent bird he rescued from a "crack house."  Where the owners were burning it with pipes - he actually had a hole on the side of his head. 

I so enjoyed holding the birds and walking around with them.  I would really like a bird like this someday.
