I used to live in a nice small cage with my friend Charlie who is a Mitred Conure. He would let me have a treat after he first checked them out and ate most of them. If I went for food or a treat first he would remind me that HE was king of the cage by biting, scratching and screaming at me. I never had my nails trimmed and in the small house of my owners there were lots of children that poked at me and grabbed me. I couldnt climb very well because of my nails and was very clumsy and dull looking. One day a nice man and his wife came by and within an hour Charlie and I we on a ride in a truck to a big home. It was scary, but no children and the rooms were very big. Before we left, the man gave my mommy $50.

When we got to the new place, my new daddy left and when he came back there was a shiny new apartment that he set up across the room from me and Charlie. He opened our door and Charlie flew out...so did I...guess he didnt know our wings we not clipped! I ran into the window and he quickly wrapped me in a towel. When he pulled the towel away I was in a penthouse deluxe apartment with a view - Awesome. Best part...Charlie was on the other side of the room and he was pissed! 10 years I lived with him since I was a baby, but now I can eat first and have treats. Within a month Charlie moved out...what a great day that was!

Since then I feel great, I have been treated like the queen that I am. I love my daddy and now that I'm 24...love to be petted, scritched, showered and go for walks on his shoulder! He wants to say something...


Within a month of selling Charlie to a great home (where he is getting all the attention), Mabel's color changed from dull, dirty green to the vibrant iridescent green she is today. It took 2 years for her to trust me to step-up, 8 years to be able to caress her head at all. Now she loves it when I pinch her annoying new feathers, always wants my attention and is not a fan of cell phones. We moved a year ago from Rochester, Minnesota to the tropical paradise of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We all love it here!

  Hi Mabel,

You're just so beautiful and what a great rescue story. I'm so glad you have a Forever Home just like me. My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. Mommy is my 3rd owner and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. I'm so happy cause I really like it here. She also wants to know if I know I'm a Cockatoo cause I'm sweet and very quiet. What does she mean by that? Want to be Friends? Please stop by and see me and my Flock sometime (think that line came from an old Movie LOL) cause we love getting company. Before I leave I'm gonna vote for you. Bye for now and Merry Christmas.

P.S. My Mommy said something about you being in Paradise. She was in St. Thomas years ago and she said it was just beautiful.

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Congratulations Mabel
Punkin curtsies to the queen. I do hope you had a wonderful day at the castle. What a wonderful way to join BC!
Could you vote for me please. I'm trying to become BOTM and would really love your help. I'm telling a story about our move TO NC. All the stories are on my frother Shaggys' page as well....Whee! We're gonna be on the move....
Part 10.....Mom got all the packing done and has spent nights cleaning. Unfortunately we've all been put in small cages for the trip. It's awful being packed in the car...it's pretty hot right now and we are NOT liking it...Oh here comes big finch...Only....his female got out when mom was giving them food. OH NO!! THE BABY! So far he's caring for the little one but mom says it may not make it. Not a good thing at all to think of. Poor boy he's calling to his mate..mom left the van open because the hen is flying in the tree calling....All us finches call her but she flies away. NO COME BACK!
Mom and dad can't put it off any longer, we have to leave. Good bye pretty girl...we tried! It's so awful listening to both of them trying to call the girl. mom checks and daddy is taking care of baby....so far so good. So here we are NC OR BUST!! We're all real quiet for a long long time until we realize we're stuck in these things ALL DAY! Mom made sure we have shades so cars and trucks passing won't worry us as much and we're on the shady side of the car. Hey it's kinda fun. Look at all the wild cousins out there! Quit shoving! MOM!!! WOW! Kiwi and Sophie and Sidney say we're going past the town Lisa lives. BYE LISA! The day keeps going and going. We sure are tired. I'm glad none of us gets car sick. Lucky bigger birds...they get to get out of their cages. We're jealous. Dad and mom are talking about where to sleep...yeah, sleep. Next thing we know mom has put covers on us but it doesn't feel like we're stopping for long. Oh well, we're mostly doing good...big finch is still calling for his mate. That makes us all feel so sad..mom too. going to Sleeeeep now.....
Thank you for your vote and hope to see you tomorrow

I am Zak, the present BOTM - welcome to Bird Channel and to the castle for the day. I see you are an orange winged amazon like me. I had a rough start in life too, and am still afraid of hands, but my new owner is great. I had an accident last week and nobidry knows what happened and I had to get one of my toes amputated, so now I am riding around on George the Tiger, but he is tame so don't worry when you see us.
