Hi!! Thanks for the help networking!! I am 22 and will be graduating Oswego in another year and a half. I'd love to do re-habbing with raptors and any other type of bird. I took a re-habbing class but never took the actual exam. I am the person that is outside wih binoculars seeing how many birds I can see and blow my parents away with how I can identify them by flight (I had to learn it for ornothology lab!). My e-mail is I am so excited!!! I remember going into the Dr. for an infected finger because I was bit by a flamingo. When I told the Dr. what happened they didn't believe me! Even after my mom told them! So nice having someone understand my stories. Oh, and when I told my mom to cover up the birds head once to calm it down and said its like putting an owl in a coffee can. Sounds cruel but it works for the small owls. There is also when I explain I named Griffin after one of the birds Dr. Irene Pepperberg did her studies on and no one knows who she is. I met her at the Canadian Parrot Confrence last year and I died. She's my hero! My mother just sent me an e-mail about our Goffin too, Peanut. Apparently he took the breeder door off his cage. I tell you, cockatoos are the multi-purpose tool! No batteries needed. They can shred, break, screw, and unscrew anything! We can't use those locking crocs for food any more because he figured out how to twist it around and pop them out with his tongue. One of his favorite toys are those prescription-type medicine bottles. The bottles with the so-called "child proof caps". Obviously when they made those containers they didn't have too's in mind! He also likes the grated parmasan cheese tainers. I currently have my conure and quaker seperated because the Quakers eye thing got worse. The avian specialist suspects a reaction to one of the meds. I don't see the Quaker itching it but I keep catching Goose preening that area. You know birds- any imperfection shouldn't be there. It hurts me more then it hurts them. Goose doesn't like it but Sprout doesn't seem to care! Poor Sprout knows when I have the syringe she is going to get medicated. Its hard medicating her by myself. I have an easier time medicating Peanut by myself. He periodically picks and no one knows why. We even had the head od endoscopy from Guelph College in Canada (We actually heard him speak the year before at the Canadian Parrot Confrence we went to oddly enough)come down and scope him. He has the nutrition, lots of attention, large cage, toys, foraging toys, etc, but he still picks. It'd be nice if he was just a feather picker but he actually picks his flesh. Have you ever seen anything like that? Anyway, I should get crackin on studying. I have finals week. My first final is Invertebrate tomorrow. ick!
