I am a bird lover, I previously owned an African Grey but it is now with my family out of the country so is hard for me to bring her back to the states I love my bird so much and that is why I am looking for another African Grey. I will be willing to drive 3-4 hrs for the right bird. I do live in California. I am not familiar with shipping methods for birds on planes...I want a bird that is healthy and loving and be assure that I will give the bird all my love and attention that it deserves. I am very familiar with this specie of pet.
