I met Paco at a Petco here in SF. I heard his cry from behind a stack of boxes. When I moved them, I found a thin, dusty parrot with neither food nor water. His cage was a mess. I walked up to the manager and told him that I'd take away his "inventory" before it died of neglect. They gave me Paco for far less than they were asking after they figured I was right. After lots of love, food, medical care and more love, he's a happy, healthy parrot. He fell in love with Winchester, our Nanday, and they live together in bliss..

Hi! My name is Paco

I am a Moustached Parakeet from San Francisco, CA.

Pocky

13 years old   M

Moustached Parakeet

Pecans and Nutriberries

On my cage or playstand.

Taking away Winchester from my line of sight.

She lets me hang out on my stand or her shoulder and just be. I love it when she gives me a piece of pecan or another treat. I am a happy boy and I love my life.

Elongating my head and pinning my eyes. It's trippy.

Life is good.

  Hi Paco
Just the fellow I wanted to hear from!!! How are you and the rest of the flock? Falco says I better say hi to Winnie and Artie or she'll be really mad. I love your pic, I think that is exactly what I'll look like eventually. My beak is becoming more amber, but my head is kind of a dusty purple. There are hints of pink on my chest, though. Mom says not to rush it, I'll grow up soon enough! I want to check out your page, if mom writes it down I can go see it when we're done blogging. Did you see my new brother yet? He's 30, and a rescue. His name is Gizmo. Here's a vote, hope to hear from you soon! Willie

  Hi Paco
V4U today. Sounds like your mom has been super busy. We're glad that she found another job. We flew over to read the article you were telling us about. You took some nice pictures, and we enjoyed reading your rescue and success story. November seems to be flying by so quickly, and pretty soon it will be Thanksgiving. Have a good day, Paco.

  Hi Paco
I hope to be as pretty as you are one day. Mom says I'm starting to grow adult plumage, but we don't know how long it takes. I eat everything!!! Fruit, nuts, corn, beans, rice, pasta, seeds, pellets, nutriberries, I'll try it all! I'm not fond of broccoli, though. Mom keeps trying. Here's a vote, say hi to your flock from both of us! Willie

  Hi Paco..Just had to share the Drama! ;)
Tuesday morning drama....Things were crazy here yesterday and mom is ready to fall asleep as she is typing this.. It all started Yesterday, Mom came home from work, she was home for 2 hrs when dad went to go get the mail. He noticed a UPS sticker left at the door. Mom had been waiting for 2 packages to come yesterday. Apparently the UPS guy didn't want to knock at the gate or open it because it was raining. Instead of delivering the boxes and he left 2 notes on the gate! Understandably mom was mad! She went to call UPS only to find The phone line was dead. So she phoned them using her cell phone and then called the phone co. also..Both were supposed to call mom back in an hr. on her cell..She never heard from either one of them. The phone finally came back on at 11:00 in the evening. Mom went to bed at 12am. by 4:30 the dog was wining and bothering mom to go outside. She was not a happy camper but took the dog out at 4:30am. She dozed back off and the dog started bothering her again. This time she put her in the room where dad was sleeping and mom went to another room to go to sleep. She had to wake up at 7 am so she was very cranky now. By 5:15am the phone rang 1x and woke her up!!(maybe a neighbor?)was dad yelling at sheena to be quiet? No number came up because it rang only 1x.. so than she saw the porch lite on. Dad must of taken sheena out once again! Mom dozed off again. Than mom woke up because Paulie was talking loud..he kept repeating Thank you..thank you.. and soooo on. Mom got out of bed because she could now see the hall lite is on. 5:30am. Dad has all the lights in the house on and the steam cleaner for the rug out. Turns out that the awful smell of doggie poop woke dad up! He got out of bed and stepped in it..Yikess!!! He told mom the dog had pooped all over the bedroom rug! Dad was steam cleaning the rug at 5:40am. Mom went back to bed in the back bedroom. Than she wakes up because paulie is still squawking Thank you to the sound of the steam cleanner. to paulie this is fine music! Mom got out of bed again..turned all the lights off and covered paulies cage. (paulie never gets covered)Dad was still steam cleaning!! Mom went back to bed at 6:10am woke up at 7:27 and is now sleep typing from her desk! Thank goodness she starts vacation tomorrow! Wooohoooooo! Hope you have a good day!!
Love and Hugs, Peetie and the tired flock ;)

  Hi Paco
Wow, great to hear from you, cuz! We heard about Rooster from Artie, hope he's adjusting. Mom still doesn't know if I'm growing my big boy or big girl feathers. My beak is still dark on the edges with an amber stripe in the center. When you see my picture, it looks amber, but that's the lighting. Anyway, I'm growing different colored feathers of some gender. I haven't gotten any taller, though, and my voice hasn't changed either. I do have lots to say, but no words yet. Mom thinks I'll pick up Falco's vocabulary before I learn any new words from her. That's what she needs here, 2 of us that yell "pretty stupid" at every opportunity! Here's a vote, fly by soon, it's always good to hear from you. BTW, you and Winnie are adorable together! Willie

Speaking of which mango bit dad today! Dad went to take him out of his cage on the training stick amd mango hopped up on the stick and ran over to dads hand and bit his knuckle! Dad is sooooooooo mad at him. He was planning on take'n him outside to get him some fresh air but he ended up back in his cage. Oh well mango!

  Hi Paco
V4U today. It was so good hearing from you. :) Tell your mom not to worry about not being able to blog. Life gets busy, we understand. Wow, that is such a sad story about Rooster! It's wonderful that your mom and dad are his foster home. Sounds like poor Rooster has been through a lot. How could anyone treat a bird like that? Just awful. It will probably take a lot of time and a lot of patience working with Rooster. We hope that Rooster will forget about his past, and that he will be happy again. Once he feels secure, and feels love and kindness again, things will get better. Have a good day, Paco. From, Dandy
