    Hi everyone, i'm Mark. I live in the West Midlands. I stumbled across the site whilst looking for bird rescue centres within the UK. I have been thinking about adopting a bird for a while and i cannot see the sense in funding animal breeders when there are so many that are in need of homes. I have always had rescue animals, including the current two dogs and a cat. I have some experience with aviary birds, having had some in the past. I'm thinking that safehousing is a good idea to gain experience? Can someone tell me how to find who the area co-ordinator is please, very confused as the ACO page lists several people

    Hi Mark, welcome to the flock. You're quite right - there are so many birds that need a home that it doesn't make sense to buy. Financially it's much cheaper to rescue anyway. It's a silly myth that you can only get a bond with a baby bird - adult birds bond too. Safehousing is a good way to start, it's the best way to get experience, and it's a huge rush when a bird that came in to you scared, upset, leaves for it's forever home a confident, happy bird. Nothing like it!
    Your Area Manager would be Kim, email her at Kimtaylor22@hotmail.co.uk. She'll contact you and take it from there. Please bear in mind that we are all volunteers, and the Christmas period we don't move birds around unless it's an emergency. It's scary enough losing all things familiar, without the bustle and noise etc. that most homes have at this time of year. We begin again about two weeks into the New Year, when things have settled down a bit.
    I'll email Kim and ask her to look out for you.
