Do You Sell Canaries?

I want to buy my girlfriend a Canary or an Owl for Christmas. Do you have any in stock?

No, Wild Birds Unlimited doesn't sell any birds. But we do sell the best bird feeders and the best bird food in mid-Michigan. If you come in we can help you set up the best outdoor bird feeding station to attract a wide variety of birds to your yard. We also have bird houses for owls and other cavity nesting birds.

The 2009 Fall & Winter Hobby Guide provides expert advice on how to better enjoy wild birds this fall and winter right outside your window. Come in today to pick up your free guide or click here to see an online version.

You should probably mention that owls can't be owned as pets in the US ;)

Yes, I almost mentioned that. Requests for owls went up with the Harry Potter movies. (Potter sparks pet owl demand: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/1716013.stm) We've had requests for Rheas(his girlfriend's name), Hawks, Owls, and lots of other birds.

People tend not to hear me when I explain "It is illegal (in the USA) for unlicensed individuals to possess any wild bird for any reason beyond overnight care before transporting to a rehabilitation site. Birds have diverse requirements for diet, care and wild birds do not adapt well to captivity." So now I just redirect peoples' thinking and tell people "no we don't sell wild birds but you can watch and enjoy the birds in your own backyard."

I've got a couple of them, and they come in many colors, such as yellow, orange, brown, black, white, and red by the way, those canaries are wonderful specially those species above. 23jj
