Keep an appropriate carrier as close as possible or underneath your pet bird’s cage at all times in case you have to evacuate.
The carrier should be light enough to be easily portable in case you need to walk a distance.
The pet bird carrier should be small in case you arrive in a shelter with limited space or have to camp out for a while after an earthquake.
The pet bird carrier should be durable in case you are displaced for several days.
A pet bird may be able to chew through some of the hard plastic airline carriers after a few days, so they aren’t the best for this purpose.
For some pet birds a small cage can work best as a carrier, such as a cage that would normally be considered too small for the pet bird, but one that can house it temporarily.
The pet bird carrier or portable cage should be set up with perches and dishes so you can grab it and go.
