NEWSPAPERS NEEDED

THE BIRDS GO THRU 100'S OF NEWSPAPERS EACH WEEK, SO THEY ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF THE LARGER PAPERS SUCH AS THE NY TIMES, THE CHIEF &  LAW JOURNAL.

I ONLY USE NEWSDAYS FOR THE INJURED BIRDS, NIKKI AND PARALYZED AMAZON, BABY WHO LIVE IN THEIR WAGONS. I GET PLENTY OF NEWSDAYS  FROM THE

 LOCAL LIBRARIES.

SO IF ANYONE HAS A COLLECTION OF THE LARGER PAPERS, CONTACT PARROTADOPTIONS@AOL.COM SO A PICKUP CAN BE ARRANGED, IF YOU LIVE WITHIN THE HICKSVILLE/LINDENHURST PERIMETER.
