    Nobody taught me- I learned for myself.
    I never asked for birds- I buy my own
    Big red flag is a person who asks for birds, but cant go through
    rescue evaluation and classes. I bet if you put forth and gave that
    rescue some of your time and were willing to make an effort to learn
    and help with what they need, they would consider you. Unless it is
    the rescue that SELL's every bird they are given, then yhea your back
    to cant pay for it- forget it.... Just a thought. Set up a paypal
    account and ask public to send you one dollar so you can afford a bird
    and all it needs. Do ppl really fall for these sad stories? LOL
