Tribute to Kevin Blaylock

The Phoenix Landing family has unexpectedly lost a very special friend to parrots, both wild and captive. Many of you knew Kevin - as a teacher, an advisor, a colleague, or just the really nice guy you met at one of our events.   

Please read our tribute to Kevin on our blog (click here). His much cherished family would appreciate any comments you can make about your time with Kevin. We'll be missing you always, dear friend!
Some of Our Many Adoptable Birds
The Phoenix Landing Foundation is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization. It was established to promote and protect the welfare of parrots through adoption, education and conservation. Almost every bird, from the smallest to the largest, from the most loved to the most neglected, will need a new home someday. Probably a succession of homes. People's lives change, often unexpectedly. One day your bird may need a good new home too.   Here are just a few of our many adoptable birds. Learn more about our process:
