Winnie came to me as a rescue from Mickaboo (a rescue here in SF). He was found in someone's backyard, shot in the neck by a bb gun. (Thus, the name "Winchester".) He was rushed to the vet, who patched him up and nursed him back to health. I was asked to foster him until they could find him a new home. Of course, I couldn't resist this charming litte man and adopted him myself. He's a sweetheart and quite a character..

Hi! My name is Winchester

I am a Nanday Conure from San Francisco, CA.

Winnie

11 years old   M

Nanday Conure

Pecans, apples, Nutriberries

On the top or door of my cage

Messing with my happy hut where I sleep - I get pretty upset if you disturb my house!

She gives me treats and lots of time on top of my cage or on her shoulder, as it should be. She loves me just as I am, even if I did pluck out some of my feathers on my legs. I am a handsome and proud bird!

Dancing to music, purring when I get pets, whisting when I'm happy..

Live out loud!.

It's Zoren, letting you know I'm thinking of you and wishing you a super wonderful day.

While I'm here, I'll just say that my page has moved. You can find me at the link below. A bunch of my flock that had separate pages all decided (per mom's "suggestion") that we move in together on one page. Supposedly this will make it easier and more likely that we'll get to write more often. I'm sure hoping so.

Take care my pantless friend.

How's my pantsless friend? With warmer weather rolling in, your 'shorts' are going to feel more comfortable all the time. I bet in the winter, you get some strange looks for running around with bare legs when it's so cold out. I've got a human brother that dresses pretty much the same way — shorts all winter long. He'd go out in them if mom didn't give him THAT LOOK that says "wise up".

All is good here with me and my flock. We're anxiously awaiting the opportunity to spend some time outdoors. It's been a long cold winter, with not a whole lot of sunny days. A little sunlight's gonna feel good to this green back.

Take care!

  Winnie, My Friend
The Z-Man here to check on you. I'm so hoping that the neckgear has been retired and that you're back to bein' cool with the feathers on your birdsonage. My flock's recently adopted a GW that has had plucking issues. Of course mom has been hoping that with changes to her diet, bathing routine and social life, the plucking might subside but the other day a number of small red feathers were found beneath her perch so it's to be assumed that Miss Reba still feels the need to pull out her lovely red covering.

Sending you my sincerest support~

  Winnie!
Say it ain't so.... that dreaded Iron Collar. I've seen those things around a bird's neck. It don't look comfortable AT ALL. What's up with the plucking? Whatever's bringing that on, Man, I'm sorry. I know them feathers are your own but Dude, they're meant to ON your birdsonage, not on the floor around the humble abode. I gotta say though, I do find your pantless appearance intriguing. I seriously doubt though your mom wants to see you running around the house naked. Company might wonder about you if you go streaking through the living room!

As for me and the rest of this McFlock, we're all doing great. We've long since settled into the winter routine with all of us stacked on top of each other in the bird room and by stacked, I mean, me being on top of every cage that's in the room, seeing whose business I can get my beak into. There are moments where I find myself ushered to the cage that's known as my "give everybirdie else a break" space. What? They don't like a little Nanday in their face all day? This face? What's not t'love? As for the humans, they're fine. Just fine. They're keeping the heat turned up, the food sliced and diced, and the premises clean and tidy. I think I'll keep'm.


May blessings be yours all through the year 2011!
I count your friendship as one of mine...

  Hi Winnie!!!
Happy Belated New Year to you sweet friend!!! Sorry I am so late with my New Years wishes....something is wrong with Moms computer and we have not been able to get online at home! Someone hacked into her and dads system and finally last night dad think he got rid of the issue. Whew! I was lonely and missing my friends and did not get to wish all my lovely friends a Happy New Year. It was very upsetting for me and the rest of the flock (not to mention mom was having a fit about the entire thing!) hee hee. Well, here I am now! Hooray! Better late than never.
Here's wishing you and the flock a most fabulous 2011!!

  Merry Christmas, Winchester!
How good to know that you and your whole flock are all doing good. Best news I could hope to here, particularly this time of year. The same can be said for me and mine; we're toasty warm and well-entertained (be it with food or toys) so I've gotta say, Life is good!" We've even had a White Christmas, which has really added to festive feeling of the holiday. A note from you was the bow on the package, that's for sure.

Take care, my friend, and thanks again for the tidings of joy.

You've no idea how thrilled I am to discover your note on my page. As you can see, it's not an overly-busy page but that's because I haven't had much of a chance for writing myself. Humans... "Pffft" is right!

Life at your place sounds a tad on the crazy side. I'm so sorry about your mom losing her job but fortunately finding another one. I hope this one doesn't go and get itself lost. I hear those job things can be hard to find once they're lost. If I could, I share a great big hug with your amazing parronts for all they endure for the sake of my distant cousins, those 'Toos you live with. Your parronts, they must have angel wings that aren't visible to just everybody. Where would PJ and Rooster be without them, not to mention Artie and a certain Nanday as well. I and my mom, we pray they are blessed ten-fold for their devotion to your flock.

As for what's new with me, well, let's see. With it being late fall, the weather's cooled enough that our days outside are over with for the year, so it's indoor entertainment for the McFlock from here on out. With the bird room being a little on the 'crowded' side, it was thought best that we conures have a cage of our own, for those moments when the rest of the flock needs a little peace and a sense of safety. Yes, I confess, there are moments I just wanna pound on somebirdie, and of coures it's always gotta be the biggest bird in the room I've got to prove something too. I'm proud to say though that in recent weeks, I've not needed to be tucked into my private space for a time out. Nope! Instead, I'm opting to (basically) mind my own business in the territory I've been told can be mine. Throughout much of the summer I was making every effort for Rooster to hear me. I don't think I earned too many points with mom for my efforts. I seem to have given that noisy quest up because here of late I've even been on the quiet side. (Hard to believe for a Nanday, huh?) All in all, though, life is good. Jensen (the Jenday) and I have become bestest buddies, like you and Paco, I imagine. We pretty much do everything together from sleep in our snuggle tent, to eat, drink, bathe, and yes, pursue those big birds (Rainbow on occasions! though with a new Greenwing in the flock, she's our new passion.) It's great having a partner in crime because then I have company in the slammer! Yup, life is good. And even more so because you've stopped by with a "Hi".

Take care, Winchester.
