Hi Tia
Spotlight on Caring Falco and the Boys,part 2
Hello, SKY here with the conclusion of our interview with Falco and the boys, and their wonderful Mom Arlene SKY; can you tell us a little about how you are involved with birds? Mom Arlene; I am a member of the National Aviary, so I 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. SKY; I do know that you volunteer at a rehab Center. Can you tell us a little more about this? Mom Arlene; 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. Currently, I take birds or other animals, including a skunk and a porcupine, to meet and greet events, where I can introduce the animal to the public and solicit support for the work at the center. I love working with the owls or hawks, they always seem to draw a crowd.
SKY; Tell me about the birds in your flock?
Mom Arlene; We already spoke about Falco. We have had a wonderful life together since she's been here. I also have 2 rescue doves, Millie and Lily, who came from the wildlife center several years ago. We had them at the center and thought they would make good foster parents for wild doves. When they saw the baby mourning doves, though, they hid! So, they now live here in peace and relative quiet. We just lost Buddy, our cockatiel. He was with us for about 11 years, and he was a rescue. He came from a home where he was traumatized, and it took over a year for him to accept that I wasn't going to hurt him when I opened the cage door to clean. We became good friends, and I'll miss him a lot. I purchased Willie from a breeder after we lost Divo, our lovebird. Willie has been a delight, he's really funny and has grown to be absolutely gorgeous! He doesn't say much, mostly "What a good boy" but he loves interacting with me.
