Spotlight on Caring-February 14th-Falco & the boys
Hello every bird, SKY here with this weeks Spotlight on Caring. This being Valentine's Day I want to first of all wish our BC friends and family a day full of love and romance! This weeks Spotlight features a flockily well known to many, Falco, Gizmo, Willie and their Mom Arlene. SKY; mom Arlene, when did you first become interested in birds? Mom Arlene; I used to have a budgie as a teenager. He was constantly with me when I was home. SKY; How did you become a bird owner? Mom Arlene; I became a bird owner from working at the wildlife center! We get ring necked doves there nearly every summer: you know the kind--either beige with a ring around its neck, or all white, and people release them at weddings or funerals or who knows when else. Anyway we always have to rehome them, as the owners don't band their legs and nearly every year some get lost and don't return home. I took a pair the first year, but doves aren't that interactive. Later (in 2005) I answered the phone when a woman asked if we rehomed parrots. I told her no, but that I might be interested. She gave me her information, and I called when I got home.

Mom Arlene; I am a member of the National Aviary, so visit there as often as I can, and I am also a member of a local chapter of Parrot Education and Adoption Council. I'm not really that active, but do enjoy their very few social events. I do volunteer at a local wildlife rehabilitation center, part of the local Animal Rescue League. I actually wrote 5 of their original 8 education programs, and went out into the community to speak about all the animals there. Recently they have hired an educator to do the programs and update them on the computer, etc. I've taken birds on outings, and done training at the museum where I work with one of the education birds from the center.
