  • Verdi used to whistle a lot more than he does now.  We believe that's because his foster mom can't whistle due to a gap in her front teeth but we also think that in a home where Verdi has someone to whistle to him, he can whistle a whole bunch of different tunes.

  • Verdi loves to be misted with a spray bottle on hot days when he's outside (see video below)

  • SAN DIEGO County residents only

  • Bird experienced adopter preferred

  • Adult only home please

Videos of Verdi:

We expect applicants to  have read up on cockatiels and their care prior to applying.  We also expect adopters to get annual exams from an avian vet for any of our birds.


Verdi's foster mom was thinking she was going to adopt him, but she wants him to get more attention than she can give him.  If a superior home can't be located, she'll adopt him herself.

Please follow these steps in interested in adopting:

1.  Read his bio carefully

2.  Fill out an adoption app from our website here (copy & paste into your browser):

3.  If we think you and Verdi could be a great we'll contact you within a few days of your applying.    We're a very small volunteer-based rescue taking care of lots of animals so we don't have time to contact everyone who applies or respond to all inquires.   Thank you for your interest in Verdi!
