Mix-Up In Mexico

Moving the flock south of the border proved to be a life or death saga

By Sunny Snow

A family moves from the United States to Mexico with their pet birdsMoving to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula appealed to us: tropical climate, friendly people, rich culture, excellent medical/dental facilities and an inexpensive way of life. Still, we were amazed to find and buy a house along the Yucatan coast in the fishing village of Chuburna Puerto on our first visit.

Once renovations were complete, we planned our move with our family: Picabo, an umbrella cockatoo; Scion, a bronze-winged Pionus; Squeaky, a sun conure; and three rescued rabbits. The research to bring birds into Mexico took nearly two years, including contacting numerous United States and Mexican government agencies.
