Total money lost $550

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I contacted him about purchasimg an African Grey Bird. I sent the money to the owner for transportation and bird fee. He is asking me to send more money. He told me the bird will be here 12/12/2016 @6pm the bird never showed up and he is continuing to ask for more money. I asked him to send me my money back he said it was non refundable. He never said this when i asked in the beginning of our initial contact. The pet people contacted on 12/12/2016 said that the bird is here for shipping and in order for me to get the bird i would have to pay an additional 550.00 to get the bird. I called him back to find out what was going on and he said he forgot to tell me that part. He said if i send half he would pay the other half after i already pay the first 550.00 i called him again and he hung up.
