Amigo W.C. Pionus
1998 – 2014
This update comes with much sadness. Amigo has passed away. We spared no effort to find the root of Amigo’s illness. But sometimes this is a battle you cannot win. Our avian specialist veterinarian was able to rule out the most worrisome possibilities, such as Avian Borna Virus, Tuberculosis, and Psittacosis.
Amigo was on a regimen of medicines and a high calorie specialized recovery formula. Meanwhile, our highly skilled veterinarian pursued other possible causative pathologies right up to the end.
Amigo was comfortable, and her passing was peaceful.
In life, Amigo was proud, bossy and bold. But if you earned her respect, she was sweet and affectionate. While she was a small bird, (around 190 grams max.) she leaves a very big hole in our hearts.
We will miss you, Amigo. You were a true friend.
Garuda Aviary accumulated over $1500 in veterinary bills from the effort to treat Amigo’s illness. If you would like to help lighten the weight of these costs, please contribute today by clicking on the Donate button. Even small donations make a big difference. Thank you for your generosity.

What We Feed Our Flock and Why
The Garuda Aviary is a non-profit sanctuary whose mission is to provide lifelong care for abused, neglected and abandoned companion parrots as well as provide education to the public about the plight of parrots worldwide.
Currently Garuda Aviary provides care for over 50 Parrots, many of whom have been reintroduced to life as “part of the flock” for the first time in their lives. In addition to our climate-controlled indoor facility, our birds can experience the feel of the sun on their wings in our spacious outdoor flight cage.
We are also committed to educating the public about the huge commitment, responsibility and difficulty of keeping parrots as pets and address the tragic effects of the cruel and inhumane illicit bird trade. The goal is to prevent future abuse, neglect and abandonment.
We invite you to please take a moment right NOW and view this short 10 minute video, which will give you a complete overview of the Garuda Aviary and our mission of compassion.
Please be patient, it will stay black for a few seconds before playing!
