Anza & Irving, of the Wild Flock of Telegraph Hill
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill are an iconic symbol of San Francisco. What is less known is that when these colorful birds become sick or injured, more likely than not Mickaboo is called in to help them heal and to find them new homes.
Anza and Irving (pictured) are two such birds, both coming to Mickaboo after their fledgling flights ended in collisions. Our latest newsletter describes the adoption journey their new guardian took to add the conures to his family, and some of his experiences with these unique birds.
Meet some of the volunteers who care for our rescued birds at Mickaboo's Third Annual Spring Fling, June 5 in Hayward. It's a casual afternoon potluck for birdlovers and supporters alike - learn more and RSVP here.
Speaking of saving dates - put a big gold star on your calendar for Wednesday, June 15. It's GlobalGiving's next Bonus Day - and with a 50% match rate, it's the best one of the year! Online donations from 6 am Pacific onward will count, until the $110K in matching funds are gone. Give early (before 8 am is recommended!) to maximize the effectiveness of your gift, and ensure your funds are matched! We will send you a reminder when this online giving event starts.

On behalf of the 450+ birds in our rescue flock (all looking for new homes - maybe yours?) and the dozens of volunteers who care for them in their homes and their hearts, we thank you for your support, now and ongoing.
