I lived in Vancouver for 20 years. I also have 3 parrots. It was inevitable that I would peruse the parrot perch. This store is large, clean, and bursting full of bazillions of great toys and food. It is fun to visit because there are always lots of large birds on display. If you are hankering to give a cockatoo a headscratch, this is for sure the place to do it!! The down side is all the large birds. There are too many problem large birds in search of homes. Large birds are hard to take care of correctly. They can be loud, smart, nippy, hilarious and wonderful. They can also live forever. The 'second chance' birds are also very expensive. There is a little meyers parrot that has been at the store for at least six months. He's $500. And on his 3rd or 4th home. At some point, when working with sentient creatures, I think compassion for the animal should come before profits. The old man with a pony tail is also sort of rude. He likes a few kinds of birds, but will bad mouth others. The red haired lady can be nice, but isn't usually very friendly. There is a lady with long brown hair who is consistently kind and friendly. This isn't the kind of parrot shop that will help you solve your bird's problems. It is more the kind of shop that will sell you a troubled bird. It is fun to visit, but I can't with good conscience give them my money.
Pros: Gazillions of toys, lots of foods, fun to visit
Cons: Rude staff, primely priced problem birds
