Hi Picabo and flock
Hello Everyone, SKY here with this weeks SPOTLIGHT on CARING. Today I will begin a series of wonderful interviews with TAZ, from the PROCTOR FLOCK and his wonderful mom Gail.. SKY; When did you first become interested in birds? Mom Gail; When my husband and I were in Hawaii on the island of Maui we stayed in a hotel that had parrots all over the lobby. We would go and look and talk to them all each day. Some were in cages and some like the macaws were on a big round ring perches. They had a parrot walk one day and we went on it to see what went on behind the scenes. It was very interesting and the gal who was their main caretaker was very knowledgeable. We decided to go to a bird store just to look at the parrots and on the way we got our picture taken with macaws all over us and that was fun, still have that picture. We found the bird store and began looking around and we told we could come into the baby bird room. That is where we both fell in love with a baby Umbrella cockatoo named Sweet Pea. Being just a baby it was the sweetest thing and of course wanted to cuddle…I was hooked. My husband being the sweet man he is tried to buy Sweet Pea for me. He talked to the owner and offered what he thought was a fair amount for the bird. We gave him our phone number for the hotel and left. Of course I was so anxious about it I couldn’t focus on anything else, we got the phone call and they declined our offer. They did call back later with a counter but it was still way too high for us…over $3000.
We left Hawaii without Sweet Pea…still thinking about that baby.
