Meet Rhea, a little parrot who suffers from Psittacine beak and feather Disease (PBFD). This featherless bird has lost its ability to fly but the desire to live keeps the bird going. A good samaritan named Isabella Eisenmann loves birds so much. SHe adopted Rhea.
Rheas are from South America only and are limited within the continent to Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. They are grassland birds and both species prefer open land. The Greater Rhea live in open grasslands, pampas, and chaco woodlands. They prefer to breed near water and prefer lowlands, seldom going above 1,500 metres (4,900 ft).
