Sorry guys i wasn't sure where to post this but wanted to get the word out right away. Amazing grace rescue where i volunteer had several birds stolen from them. We had a location in springfield illinois and the ppl there dissappeared with the birds. They had been our second location for over five years but recently we had been having trouble getting them to communicate with us so the owner was going to go pick up the birds. She got there to find out that the house was completely empty. The neighbors told her that the ppl left with the birds last weekend.

im not at home now so ill have more information later but right now i know that there was one red vented, two umbrellas, and two mollucan toos. There was also a greenwing and a blue and gold macaw and a few conures.

Please cross post this. The police are already involved but they left no forwarding address and could be anywhere. I know the husband was working in north or south dakota and I believe that he was going to be moved to florida in jan.

Oh, that is AWFUL! Those poor birds...I hope everything turns out ok. North Dakota isn't far from me, (and by that, I mean under 5 hours hehe) so I will keep a lookout for some birds there. Do you know what kind of conures? I'll watch kijiji too.

Oh Melissa, that is so awful. Did they at least take real good care of the birds while they were taking care of them? Do you think the poor birds will be safe and treated well until these people are found? I am saying prayers for their safe return.

Were these people fostering the birds? Or were they more closely connected with the rescue? I hope they find them soon!

Sorry I haven't been back on. Had a dart tournament this weekend so I've been really busy. I just talked to the rescue though and have good news. The husband of the couple has been in contact with us and we are working on getting the birds back. They are not back home yet though so Id appreciate continued good thoughts and prayers until they are safely returned. I'll keep you guys up to date one whats going on.
