I had lost a beloved cockatiel, and I was heartbroken. I became ill and needed major surgery. While in the hospital, there were pigeons roosting outside the window of my room. I would hear them come each evening and go each morning. It was then that I knew I wanted another bird in my life. I had always loved birds and I decided to search for another cockatiel.

After I left the hospital, I went to see the same breeder that I had gotten my first cockatiel from. I told her that I was looking for a new cockatiel. She told me that it would be a couple of months before there would be new baby cockatiels available. I told her I would wait. I began walking around admiring all the other birds that she had available. I was looking into the eyes of a Sulpher Crested Cockatoo, when I felt a slight tug on my jacket sleeve. I looked down and saw this small Amazon looking up at me. I crouched down to take a better look, and I heard him say "Hello." His eyes pinned a little bit as I said "Hello!" I put out my finger and he readily climbed right on. My best friend who was with me told me that I should buy this bird. I told her that there was no way I could afford an Amazon parrot. I know that he had to cost at least $1,200 and I only had $200. The breeder overheard our conversation and told me that she was sick and that she was closing shop. She told me that she could work out some kind of a deal because she knew that I really loved the bird and we were meant to be together.
