January 16th Spotlight on Caring part 2
Hello all my BC friends! Sky here with the conclusion of my interview with Mr Kiddo and his wonderful Mom Pam. I must apologize that I failed to post Kiddo`s photo SKY: In what other ways are you involved in BC? KIDDO: My partner, RaneBeau, and I organize the monthly milonga, which is a virtual party which usually has a theme corresponding in some way with the month. For instance in October we had a cemetery tour to go with Halloween. In May we always have the Annual Milonga Derby to go along with the Kentucky Derby with the assistance of Chyna and her mom who are Derby afficianados. And we are always open to suggestions for a new theme or activities to go with a repeat theme. Don't be shy! We love it when other birdies get involved. That is what BC is all about. Community!
SKY: Are you involved with any bird rescues, clubs etc outside of BC? PAM: I truly wish the answer to this one was yes. I have been looking for a bird club in my area for years. There just aren't any. In fact, we rarely have Bird Fairs or Shows either, and I am so envious when I hear about the great ones in other parts of the country. I do sign on to the Animal Rescue Site every day and click to contribute to them, and when there is a contest I vote for the Oasis Sanctuary in AZ.
SKY: WHAT IS YOUR ONE THING you'd like to say about birds in general? PAM: Not all birds can be lucky enough to stumble in to a home where a bond like the one we have formed occurs. And although Dad is not bonded with Kiddo (Kiddo is jealous of him), he is understanding and never is mean to him (although he is not above a few terrible jokes about parrot stew).
And I hope all new parrot people do what I did and research to learn the things they need to know. The first food I bought for Kiddo was seeds, and his first cage was a parakeet cage (which he destroyed in less than one week). I learned very quickly by asking questions at the pet store, reading books from the library and subscribing to Bird Talk, that there is always something new to learn about these fascinating creatures who have so much love and companionship to give us when we are smart enough to recognize it.
SKY: Thank you Kiddo and Mom Pam for your insight into the BOTD/BOTM titles, and for sharing with us all for love for birds, and the wish that all owners would do their research BEFORE they buy the bird.
I am looking for other birds, flocks or individuals who would like to share about their interest in birds, how they got their bird(s) and how they try to make this world a better for for all us feathered beings. Please contact asap so we can plan February's SPOTLIGHT'S on CARING.
with my heart filled with love
