Wildlife Wendy

Wendy Horton and her Tropical Birds have been entertaining people of all ages since 1995.

An Ohio native, Wendy once aspired to be a television personality and was a small market news anchor at the age of 20! In 1990, Wendy got bit by the animal bug and moved to Southern California to study Exotic Animal Training and Management at Moorpark College. Upon graduation, Wendy was preforming in animal shows at theme parks across the country including California's Six Flags Magic Mountain, Ohio's Cedar Point, and New England's Riverside park. In addition to preforming, Wendy has trained her birds an other animals for the film and television industry.

After working with all kinds of animals, Wendy could not deny her passion for parrots and decided to produce her own show. Wendy's goal was to not only entertain, but to create an awareness about the endangered Rainforest and what it's like living with birds at home. The birds enjoy performing! parrots are highly intelligent, social animals and welcome the opportunity to problem solve. Performing in shows provides these birds with an excellent source of physical and mental stimulation.

Wendy Horton and her Tropical Birds have performed for State & County fairs, school programs, and on television shows such as The Tonight's Show, The KTLA Morning News and Donny & Marie!
