Mom was on a trip to Las Vegas when she came into "For the Birds". I was on a huge play table and I walked right up to her. I think she was a little intimidated by my rather large beak but then I convinced her I was completely sweet. She fell in love with me and she took me home! Now I get to be with someone who loves me with all her heart everyday! She says that besides her skin-kids, I am the light of her life!! I am home forever!. Awards

Hi! My name is Stanley

I am an Amazon from Running Springs, CA.

10 years old   M


I love pumpkin and sweet potatoes! I love fresh sprouts and corn on the cob! YUM!YUM!

I love my big Star-bird net filled with toys, the top of my cage cuz it's a play top,
the kitchen perch where i get handed lots of treats and my mom's room!

I love everybody and everything! I am very easy going but if I had to pick one thing that really bugged me it would be that brat Katie (CAG). She likes to fly onto my cage to make me fly off...I hate that!

She plays with me everyday and we have lots of fun games we do! Mom loves to put on wild music and dance with all us FIDS! She recently learned about a CD called "Bananphone" by Raffi and we all love to bounce to that song!!!

I love to swing upside down, sing The Barney Song from start to finish, stick my whole beak in my food when I eat and call all of mom's stupid poodles by their names, throw food to them and bark at them.

Food, food,food,food,- food!!! More Please!.

As I was telling your fister, Stella, I can't believe it took me so long to come by and congratulate you on your new room and wish you a Fantastic Fall Season as well. Thanks, Buddy, for coming by and sayin' "Hi". Great to hear from you. So, have you got the rest of the group convinced that the new room is a cool (and safe) place? Ain't it just like an Amazon to show no fear. I'll bet your mom's got your new digs lookin' really cool. Is the Rope Jungle hangin' in there? Do you even go in your cage anymore or are you out and about all the time now? Bet you're lovin' life, that's for sure. Lookin' forward to seeing pics of the new place... Until then... Big Harvest Hugs backatcha! R ('>

Rainbow here to welcome you BACK to the BC!! It's is SO wonderful to know that you're well, safe, and home with your beloved flock, right where you belong!! You know, my mom is still determined to have a carbon copy of you join my flock. I can hardly get her to let me continue writing... she's always wanting to zip to the top of the page and gaze at your picture! I willingly admit, you're a handsome fellow! Well, just wanted to say it's great to know all is well with you. Here's to life, love, and long-time friends. R ('>

  A note from Sierra to all of her friends
I just wanted to stop by and wish all my friends here on Bird Channel a nice weekend. Today is a very special day for me and my Erin. We are celebrating my 1 year of coming to live with Erin!! We are so happy today! It's seems like Erin and I have been together forever, but yet we both can't believe this day is here. It was an uphill battle (guess mom named me right, Sierra means jagged mountain range.) Just to think a year ago I was afraid of everyone now I have nothing to fear, well almost. Erin says I have grown by leaps and bounds, this past month have have also decided its okay to let select people hold me. We both feel so triumphant! It's so wonderful to live a normal happy life. Today we shall celebrate with some birdie bread and new toys!! I can't wait to get the party started :) we will take pictures and post them at a later date. So in honor of me please do something fun with your parrot today! Birdie hugs <3 Sierra

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

Stanley, I was thinking about DYH Amazons...and you...and thought I'd let you know what's up with Simon. He's not at my house yet but the Foundation finally sent an e-mail saying the application had been approved and that a home visit would be scheduled soon. That was weeks ago. Mom's just being patient and letting fate determine what will happen as opposed to calling up there and pestering them. If she hasn't heard from them by the end of this week she's going to call and ask if she can at least come up and meet the little man. Maybe he won't even like her! Just looking at your pictures gets us all stirred up again about bringing Simon home; you're such a sharp-lookin' guy...we can see 'fun and intelligent' just radiating out from your photos!! Hope life is treatin' ya great there in CA! Here's a vote 4 U!

Stanley, my man! What's up? Is that a new pic in your extras collection, the third one? Nice play area. It looks good with you on it! Just to update you on the Simon Situation...there is no update. My mom's not sure what's going on...she's not heard from the Rescue Agency in weeks. She's even dropped them a note carefully worded so as not to sound pesky but still interested. I thought by now there'd be a new family member with his own web page but alas. I'm keeping my wingtips crossed...even though I know I'll have to share more of Mom with Simon I really think it'll be worth it. I just know he's going to be nearly as nice as you are and that he & I can be buddies in a unique way. (The greys just don't want to hang out with me. Maybe Simon will at least allow me to sit next to him. The greys always move off, as if I smell funny, or somethin'! Maybe it's the beak...)
Hope all is well with you and the flock. Can't wait for an update for your neck of the woods! Salute to you...with a vote! R

  Well Advised!
Stanley, thanks so much for all your guidance and assurance about Simon. Mom has no clue as to when he might join the family but believe me, YOU will be the FIRST to know!! I'm so impressed with've never bitten your Mama. I wish I could say the same. It makes me feel so bad when I slip up and forget that I love my mom dearly. Thank goodness she forgives me of my faults. Your soft words of condolence concerning our little dog are very special as are your prayers and big wing hugs. Thanks Stanley. A V2U, as always...R

  Simon looks like a doll!!
Hey and I went and looked up Simon! He is sure cute! Mom said the picture looked like he was in good feather...whatever that means! When will you know when he is coming home with you! I sure hope it's soon. Mama said she thinks 20 is a good age...he will be over his major hormonal agression maybe. Sometimes in our prime us DYH's can get a little testy in the spring. We are very easy to read though!!! let your mama know that she could look for a fanned tail, puffed feathers, pinning eyes and a proud strut! That means he might be ready to bite. I, of course am special though (of course!) When I do all those things it just means...PICK me UP NOW!!!! I love my mama and have NEVER ever bitten her!!! She keeps saying "Don't brag about that Stanley, you are still young"!
I can't wait to here the news that "Simon is coming home!!"

Tell your mama that my mama has only a bit of time before she has to get back to doing school with those kids so she can only type for me now and then she will type for everyone else later tonight!

She and I read about your sweet little dog!!! We are so sorry!!! It is so hard and sad to lose someone you love! Please know that we are thinking about you and praying for your family!!! Mama says that God can mend broken hearts and she is asking Him to do just that at your house!!! We here all love you big wing hugs and prayers to all of you!

Come visit me, Stanley, Stella, Katie & Shelby.

  Rainbow is Lucky!
So, you're hanging out in new digs tonight! Congrats! Stella sounds excited about her Octi-home! She hinted that you're quite the acrobat! I can picture it now. Is this what I have to look forward to if Simon gets to come to my house; gymnastic entertainment? Oh goody! I love to watch ACTION! You all are so kind to be excited for a birdie so far away...and to want to wish him well and send presents! I've got my wings crossed that everything will work out just right. Thanks for the advice about my big snoz! You funny boy! Yes, my snoz is intimidating. It's how I get the dogs to get out of my way when I'm coming through the kitchen! Speaking of dogs, not that all this joyous talk of new cages and new friends needs to be rained on, but my family had to part with a Rat Terrier this weekend due to diabetes complication. My young teenage human friend, whose been best friends with that dog since he was 8, is heartbroken. He opted to homeschool so he could be with that dog. Our house won't be the same without the little pooch. Kelly's not helping any...she keeps calling, "Kayla, come here! Kayla?" Thank goodness for pictures and precious memories. Speaking of pictures...grief this note is getting'll be pooped by the time I finally stop chatterin'!!...but speaking of pics...Simon's pic can be found on under bird... Muscatine, IA. Tell me what you think...
Well, before I bore you to tears I'll clamped my snoz, vote for you and sign off! Nite Stanley... And why did I start out this note by saying I'm lucky? 'Cause I have you as a friend...!

  DYH Update from Rainbow's the scoop...while waiting to hear from the character's family, Mom continued to browse the classified ads/bird rescue pages. Somehow, a site that had never come up in the search appeared, an animal/bird rescue foundation not too distant from my home...with a DYH fellow in need of a new home. In studying up on Simon Mom made the discovery that the original birdie she was considering was not a DYH but a YCrowned Amazon. Not a big deal...But Simon (the rescue bird), his story is so sad...he was forced to live in a cage meant for a parakeet (and an unlucky one, at that) so now he has permenent curvature of the spine. Subsequently, he isn't fond of humans or being touched...but that isn't daunting to my would be ok if he just needed to hang out and watch from a distance...none of us would mind. Maybe, with time, Simon would be able to relax and enjoy life more after being able live like a bird instead of a burden. The other Amazon will make someone a wonderful pet because he's friendly and talkative. Few will ever want Simon with his problems...that's why he's wanted here. The adoption process is just getting started, with the application under review and the home visit yet to be scheduled. Somebody in Simon's past needed to meet your Mama and learn about responsible ownership prior to make the choice to torture a bird. Your Mama will be earning her angel wings with her dedication to making life better for other birds! I'm so relieved to know now that all is well at your house. I was really getting scared that something terrible had happened and that I might never know anymore about you. That was scary. I understand a new outodoor play area is in the making! How funtastic!! Birds around the world are wishing they could be as lucky as you four are! A wing salute (and a sigh of relief) for you, my buddy Stanley! Rainbow

I just want you to know my mom's been crazy ever since she met you. (Well, actually she was probably crazy long before that but you've really brought it out!) She wanders around muttering about having no business wanting another bird but then I notice her in reading about DYHA and surfing the 'adoption' pages... And now, she's found one! And it's driving her batty! Stay tuned! Dad spoils her rotten and has already agreed to travel the 9 hours to go meet the character. We'll see... So, I give you a vote for making my mom NUTS! Your coolness intrigued her! Way to go!

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Hey, great extra photos! That's an unbelieveably cool playgym you've got there. I wanna come over and hang out with all of YOU! Those big plans my mom had for researching more on DYH Amazons last Friday never materialized...unexpected errands...then we got hit with an ice storm that took out the power...and the internet...and the BirdChannel...what a bummer. 48 hours later... Anyway, looking forward to checking out all your suggestions. Scritches to you & a vote! Take a wild swing on that contraption for me! Weeeee!! R.

  Hello Stanley!
Katie told me to come and visit you. You are a very handsome boy. Your motto is similar to my sister Pringles. They both have the same meaning anyway. Katie makes you fly off your cage? Aren't you bigger. Oh well, Pringle tries to tell me what to do, but I just won't listen. I LOOOVE hanging upside down. That is when I find myself confronted by a dangerous won't let go of my foot. It flies around and hits me in the head. Beating it violently and screaming at it is the only way to defend oneself. I am leaving you a vote. Talk to you later. Poirot

  A Cheer for DYH Amazons!
The more my mom reads about you and your feathered kin, the more she's intrigued. In fact, she's devoting time today to checking out the website you provided and a search for a breeder. In all honesty, I shouldn't be excited about only means that there'll be another bird I have to share mom's attention with. But you all sound so happy there, maybe it works out ok. I do enjoy the antics of our CAGs; they keep thing interesting when mom's gone or otherwise detained. Wonder what exciting thing you said or sang yesterday. Write and tell me a tale sometime. I love stories! Scritches & a V2U...R.

Nice to meet you! I stopped by to introduce myself, having met Stella, a macaw like me. I wanted to see who her family is before writing to her again. Your mom mentioned that she has the "Macaw" bug again (and maybe you don't want to hear that). After reading all about you, (and that you sing in ENTIRE Barney song...) MY mom now thinks she's catching the "Amazon" bug!! You sound like a complete charmer!! I noted that you refer the the CAG as a brat. That would be a shared opinion at my house...about one of the CAGs anyway. Kelly runs everybody off of everywhere, even if it's not her spot to begin with...Grrr. Laughed when you described the poodles as 'stupid'. The bratty CAG also knows the dogs here by name and keeps them confused about wether they're coming in or going outdoors 'cause she's always calling them and giving instrucitons in Mom's voice! (Like we said, bratty.) Hey, it was great meeting you! I'm off to introduce myself to the others in your home! A V2U for being, well, awesome!

I am so happy your MOM loves you because I am the same kind of bird as you.
My mom can not keep her hands off of me.. She has only had me for 3 wks though, so I will forgive her. I Love to sing too! Mom doesn't know what I am sining, but I know it is some kind of aria. I love to sing, and we have all of Raffis songs too.. Bannaphone is one of my favorites.. like.. "apples and bananas".. just when I had the verse figured out.. Raffi changed it on me.. What is that all about.. do you know? lol

  Hi Stanley!
Welcome the BirdChannel! You sure a cutie! Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.
