My boyfriend and I went to a rescue to see about possibly adding another bird tou our home. We already had a yellow naped amazon, we ended up with two! How could we resist! Pumpkin is a rescue bird that captured my heart when I had heard of the conditions that she had come from. She was rescued from a drug house and was addicted to crack. One look and it was total love on both sides, her first words to me were "kiss me baby" after living in not so good conditions this little angel still wanted nothing more then someone to love her, and she wanted me, and that was it she had my heart..

Hi! My name is Pumpkin

I am from ROCHESTER, NY.

Goofy Bird.

13 years old   F

Loves pudding, and carrots. But bean and ham soup is a most special treat...

Loves to sit either in my hoods of my sweatshirts, curled in my hair, and ontop of her cage looking out the window.

I do not like fingers!!!! My Daddy...Ok I like him but don't let him in on that secret that's whats so much fun.........

I love my mommy because she is silly just like me! She lets me ride around on her head and gets a kick out of me when I attack Daddy! She says "go get him" I jump down from my cage and fly over to Dad, land on his shoulder and bit his ear! Then I give him kisses.....He calls me his little goofy bird.

Loves to cuddle down in my hair on the nape of my neck and will sit there all day long if allowed to. Peeking her head out from under neath ever once in a while..

If you don't make me the center of attention. .....Watch out because I will do anything to make me the center of everyones attention!!!!.

  Hi from another CNY Senegal!
What a pretty bird you are... but then we Sennies are all gorgeous, right? And I like the way you sneaked your Mom into your picture. She's pretty too! Now that it's warm and sunny, I love going outside in my flight suit. The winter lasts way too long here. I came all the way from a rescue in Connecticut, and the winters were long there too. The last big snowstorm we had in Syracuse caused our power to go out, and my Mom carried me around all day inside her sweatshirt to keep me warm, and gave me lots of hugs and kisses... I was sorry when the power came back on! Aren't we lucky that we have kind people around to appreciate how wonderful we are? I am happy to meet you!

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.

Thanks for all the bathing tips - I will pass these on to my mom!! You are a cute & bright bird. It must be fun having "friends" to flock with ! ? Again, that's for the bathing tips - hope they work?

  Hi Pumpkin! Good job getting Crocket into trouble! You're parents are quite savvy and difficult to fool but this was a good one! Of course Crocket couldn't resist having a bath when he saw you having one! Poor Crocket....outsmarted by a Senegal!

  Hi Pumpkin! mom is pretty silly. She thinks she's set on Wisdom for the grey's name but she's promised that before so she's reluctant to promise that again! LOL! Things are okay between me and Wisdom as long as he stays away from me and my territory! LOL! Mom is convinced that with gentle encouragement and time we'll become friends. She doesn't know how stubborn I can be!!!! We had a great breakfast this morning! Fresh papaya, kiwi, grapes, green beans and kidney beans! Mmmmmmmmmm! I wasn't big on the papaya but Wisdom ate all the papaya first thing. He loves it! Mom bought all kinds of great fresh fruits and veggies for us this week. I can't wait for the mango to be ripe! Mango is my second favorite behind grapes. What's new with you?

It was so nice to hear your story. My mom was going to rescue a bird. That was until i found her. I latched on to her and that was it. You have my vote. Good to see you are in a better home and taken care of. I am very spoiled and so are the rest of my roomies. Take care. Raptor

Come visit me, Theodore, Dito & Raptor.

  My heart broke reading your story, Pumpkin. I have a soft spot for senegals but that's not why. For any bird to be addicted to crack and live in that kind of hell is unfathomable. I'm so glad you're in a good home now with loving parents and a feathered flock. (hug)

Any human who knows and understands the beauty of having a feathered friend in their life is lucky. Other ppl think I am lucky because my mum spoils me SO much. But she always says she is the lucky one, because I am such a wonderful friend (even if sometimes I disobey her, or choose to just not listen). She loves me anyway :)

Come visit me, Fido.

I really wish people like that would get a taste of their own medicine - times 10! I'm glad you have found a good home now and are happy.

  Our dog doesn't like people blowing on her either. The mean people that left her to die used to blow pot smoke in her face. She gets scared easy. It makes me sad when people are so mean to animals. ~Snuggles

  I'm so sorry those mean people got you hooked on crack. Do you have any health problems from it? I'm glad you got out of there. You look like your very happy in your new home! Isn't it great to be so loved? ~Snuggles

  I'm getting a new sibbling!
My mom and dad just told me I'm going to be a big sister! My new buddy's name will be Rosie and she was just born last night! I just saw a picture of her and she's pretty ok for being a cockatoo. We'll see...I'll keep you all posted.

Thanks guys for voting for me too! Boy who would have thought just a few short weeks ago I didn't have a home and now I have a whole family! Thanks Tiki my forever home is great, and I'm glad your finally happy too. We may be small but we know what we like and how to get what we want....And just like you I wanted my mommy too. It's nice now to be in a home that loves me. I hope all of you rescue birds out there have found your forever homes and for the ones that haven't, don't worry you'll find a forever home too. ......Pumpkin

Come visit me, Argos, Alula, Dusty Rose, Buddy, Pumpkin, Crocket & Tweety.

  Hi Pumpkin!
Welcome to the channel! I'm a Meyer's Parrot, which is a cousin (and in the same family) of the Senegal. Glad to hear you have a wonderful forever home. This is my 3rd home...and I'm sure glad it's the forever kind! I picked my mom out instead of the other way around. The bird store that I was living at said that I didn't like ANYBODY! Guess I told THEM! Come visit me sometime....I'm voting for you today! Birdie hugs, Tiki

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

I had a Senegal that past away...they are such the sweetest birds. When i was picked by my Senegal he kept on bringing all his toys to the front of the cage and millet for me to see, Then he would rub his head along the glass, lol I think its so cute that yours said kiss me baby! I love it! I am glad pumpkin has a great home now :) see you around

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.
