I've never heard of UPS shipping birds. I always went through
Continental for my shipping but most of the major airlines do
ship animals. You're best bet is to call them individually
and get pricing and requirements. Some require a health cert.
from your vet, some don't. As far as the person receiving,
chances are that you don't know anything about them, so get
the money first before you even make any shipping arrangements
and when they get to the airport, they'll pick up the carrier
in the luggage receiving area. When you call they'll give you
all the details. They have 1-800 numbers, go online and
google the airlines that fly into your airport or the large
airport near you and you'll fine the numbers. Hope this helps.
