Our Condolences
I am so sorry for your loss!!! Only bird owners can truly understand the devastation of the loss of our feathered family members. Four years ago, Nippy (Double Yellow Headed Amazon)and I lost his best friend and mate, Gizmoe (Blue Front Amazon). For him it was love at first site...she took a few months to adapt being a 2nd family bird. Once she accepted him they were never more than 2 feet apart. I had them living on an open perch in a bird proof room. One day I heard a frantic flutter of wings and Nippy screaching in the background. Rusing to them, I discovered Gizmoe on the bottom of the perch. I can only guess at what happened but her neck was broken. It was an instant departure from this world so she did not suffer. Sad as I was at her loss, watching Nippy was worse. He climbed into her casket and groomed her. After the burial we went through a horrendous month of watching Nippy go from room to room calling her. Slowly he returned to accepting my love but he still perks up at the pic of Gizmoe and her song, "I'll Fly Away". I agree, you are separated by distance but not in heart. Our sympathy and prayers go out to you.
