Then Bink went to a second family, who also kept her locked up in a small enclosure. Bink couldn't get the exercise or socializing she needed to be happy.

She called Kail Marie, founder of Tallgrass Parrot Sanctuary in Lecompton, Kansas, desperate for help.
"We of course could not say no," Marie told The Dodo.
