According to Alan


My name is Alan Sipe and I have been owned by a flock of birds for approximately 15 years. I started out with a Senegal and over time I got a Cockatoo, then an African Grey, a Macaw, and so on. I found that I had a knack for handling and reading the larger Macaws.

I volunteered my time at a bird rescue and learned so much more about them and the plight of the homeless parrots and why the problem existed. I helped a few years with the one rescue and then I hooked up with Feathered Sanctuary when it was in Holtwood, PA.
