How are you? I fell in love with a beautiful 2.5 years old Orange Wing Amazon from a Pet Shot in NJ. He needed a good home. He has been at the store since he was born. He was handfed but did not sell. His name is Gonzo. He is a little scare and doesn't seem to like women but with me he is getting more comfortable. I was working with him this weekend. He is already stepping-up but it takes me a while to get him out of the cage. He is already starting to say 'hola' in birdie kind of voice. He took his first shower on Sunday.

I felt so sorry for such a beautiful bird just been at a pet shop. He just needed someone willing to work with him and I am looking forward to making good friends with him and providing him with TLC. Health wise he is fine, they feed him well. I got it at a place in NJ called Bird Paradise, have you heard from them? Is an amazing store for all kinds of toys and other bird stuff. I bought a play pen for Papito and he loves it! He looks so happy playing and hanging around in it. His wing is back to normal.

Bird Paradise has a seminar in October with bird experts coming and also Dr. Irene Pepperberg, the lady that did research with Alex the african grey. Here is more info:

October 20-21, 2007.
The 4th Annual Parrot Palooza at Bird Paradise, Burlington, NJ. For more info please visit Bird Paradise's website

I'm planning on going. I will stay overnight since it is a 2 day event.

Take care!

Nelson, Papito, Tosca, Gonzo, Piruli and Mamita
