A Friend of my Husbands where he works told my Husband that he had one baby Cockatiel that survived after the momma 'teil died.The daddy 'teil took overfeeding Wind,and when we went to see him,the Dad sat on my shoulder with his baby,daring me to touch him!I had to make friends with him first!Wind was just two months old when we brought him home as our first Birdy!We hand fed him baby birdy food,taught him to forage,and taught him tricks.When my husband and I came home from work,he would call us loud enough to where we and the neighbors could hear him at least six houses away!Wind accidentally got loose in February of this year,and I still search for him daily,we have reported sightings that tell us he survived the Winter,well into Spring.UPDATE:W- ind was found December 11,2008,and returned to me January 11,2009.He has changed his appearance a bit,losing his lovely pearls,but is still our same sweet birdy!Thanks to all who helped,as we are beside ourselves to have him back after ten months lost outside in Michigan!.

Fresh Fennel,hard-boi- led eggs,and the occasional hard taco from Taco Bell

Window perch,refrigera- tor top,and sink,she thinks its her own personal bathing area

Not getting Pet on his head enough,or not being first into the shower before the humans!

  Hi Wind
Dandy here. Mom wants to know if that was enough information. I've changed some since I got here even. My head patch used to be maybe only a couple of feathers, but now it's bigger. But you know how that goes. But that's why mom wanted so many angles of me. Hope all is going well your way. v4u

  With the Wind In Your Hair
You are seated at the corner
of my conciousness
A thought on the periphery
Pleasant and tickling
like feathers brushing my cheek

Sage and cedar memory
warm as wool
cool as crystal

A smokey stirring breath
moving swiftly in
and
away

With love from Cathy and the FLorida FLock

  Aho WindInHisHair!
The most perfect name for you after your adventure! We saw your note on Dandy's page and had to fly by to say hello and welcome home! Mom says she would simply fall to pieces if any of us got lost and she is so glad that you are home. Your name is what caught her eye since she has an Apache friend whose daughter is called Strong Wind In Her Hair. That caused mom to write a poem called "With the Wind in Your Hair" that she will share with you and your mom if you like. So good to hear that you found your home again. Fly by to visit us when you can. Cheers! Sergio and the FLorida FLock

  Hey Wind
Dandy here. How's it going since you made it back home? I never made it back to my original home. I just hope they didn't look for me for the two years I was gone. Well, it's almost 3 years now. My mom is still upset that my last home never searched for my original parronts. She knows how it is to lose a beloved pet. She lost a kitty and never knew what happened.
When Mom brought me home the first thing she did is trim my wings because she wanted to let me out of my cage. I was mad at her for so long because how was I supposed to escape the cat???? Oh, here we don't have any dogs or cats. After I discovered that I didn't mind so much. And after I discovered showers!!!! They are so great. I was so dry because I never had a bath or shower for 2 years and it was awful. Now I have good food, good fibs and loving parronts.
Fly by when you can.

  WHOOO HOOOOO
Wind how wonderful you got home!! I never was able to get to my original owner because I was kept by my rescuers. Now I have a good home that bathes me and feeds me good food. Yeah, mom trimmed my wings first thing. Didn't want me to escape. Now I don't think I'd go, but she'll still trim them. Left a vote and an invite to visit.--Dandy

  WIND FOUND!!!!!!
I AM HOME!!!!My Mommy found me on January 11,2009....but she didnt recognize me.She took me home anyway,and once I became comfortable,and she washed all of the Birdy dust off of me,she could see where I lost all of my pretty spots and stripes,they are almost still there,along with three very very small colorful ones.I am now a very handsome grown up Birdy of two years,and Mom says we are very very lucky to have ever found me at all!!!I am rediscovering all of my habits,and I still like Eagles music(Moms Fault),and all my fave foods are still here,waiting for me.Mom has been giving me awful antibiotics,but she says tomorrow I can have some yummy yogurt in my mash now that I dont need them for now,apparently eating worms isnt good for you!!!I sang Mom a song about an outside friend I had,and she said I sing prettier than he does.I am so happy to be home,time for some fennel,carrots,cranberries,and some dandelion greens,gotta go!!Wind,In HISHair,missing since February 2,2008,found January 11,2009...three miles from home on a childs swingset in a park.He is recovering nicely,and we all thank God for this second chance.Remember,if you are in position where you have lost or found a bIrdy,they can change drastically,see pics above for example.Wind was only one year old when he got out,apparently molted and chagned:and has a wing trimmed for safety purposes now,as well as a sign on the door that reads,"please wait while we put our birds away,if one gets out because you walked in,you can go get it!!"

  I am Lost
Yes,I am Lost.I followed my Mommy outside back in early February when she tried to catch a cab to work.The Cab was passing our house,and I wanted to go with Mommy,but when I tried to follow her out and land on her shoulder,I got scared because the screen door was coming back at me fast.I flew East into the air,calling my Mommy the whole time.My Mommy could not find me anywhere,even after hours and days in the snow.Six weeks later,on Easter weekend,my Mommy got a call from a man describing me to her.I was in his tree,foraging from the birdfood he had placed out there.Unfortunately,that man chased me,so I hid,and only talked to my Daddy for about ten minutes while my Mommy and her friends tried to find me.I am still lost,but I know my Mommy is looking for me every day,and will not give up until she finds me.
