January 23 Spotlight on Caring; Cappy & Mom Terry
Hi Every birdie, SKY here with a 2 part "SPOTLIGHT on CARING", with our good friend Cappy, & his Mom Terry. Just a quick reminder of the Ice Fishing Trip Thursday evening at 7:30 PM EST on page 225323, hosted by my frother Casey. SKY; Terry when did you first become interested in birds? How did you become a bird owner?
Terry: I became interested in parrots as a teenager. I had a Budgie when I was a teenager and a Cockatiel in my late teens. Most recently in 2009 I had a co-worker get me interested again, as she has a Green Wing Macaw that she talks about every day. After talking with the Co-Worker I decided I wanted to be a parront again and purchased a Rose Breasted Cockatoo (Sasha) from a local bird store.
SKY; Terry when did you join BC?
Terry; I joined BC a few months after I got Sasha on March 15, 2009
SKY; Can you tell us a little about how you are involved with birds? Do you volunteer somewhere, speak to people about birds etc?
Terry; I am mostly owned by my FIDS but I will gladly talk about my experiences with anyone who is interested. It’s amazing how much you can learn from each parrot as each one is an individual just like human kids. I have given my name to a local rescue organization if they needed help but have never been called. My Co-worker had a house fire at the beginning of 2010 and we bird sat her Green Wing until her family could get their house cleaned up. She was very lucky girl because the fire started in the kitchen and her house was next to the kitchen.
SKY; Please tell us about the birds in your flock? Are any rescues?
Terry: Sasha, Rose Breasted Cockatoo, was purchased from a local bird store in 2009 and passed away from heavy metal poisoning (she ate a brass zipper) on September 27, 2010
Dory, Red-Front Macaw, rescue/rehome from co-worker whose husband could no longer tolerate her screaming (She doesn’t scream much anymore J )
Rudy, Rose Breasted Cockatoo, purchased from breeder
Dixie, Goffins Cockatoo, rescue/rehome
SKY; Thank you Terry & Cappy. Next week we will continue to talk about all the problems and concerns that came when Cappy joined the flock.
with my heart filled with love,
