Happy 4th of July Weekend, everyone!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad has an afternoon party on the 4th, but will be home birdie-sitting that evening.
I am skiddish and scared of loud fireworks in the neighborhood. Dad stays home and plays with me, sings to me - and keeps me occupied during the big BOOMS and NOISES that others make throughout the town.

Hope you have a wonderful day. ~Wings Up~

  Hi Mikey...V4 ME !!!
Today I'm taking you to the Northern Cheyenne rez in Lame Deer Montana...
This is where the people of the Big sky comes from... My tribe The northern Cheyenne...

When our creator made all things that are good and living such as our four legged brothers with fur,our brothers with wings and beaks,our brothers with scales and fins and our brothers who
crawl.He sent them from father sky to mother earth. He then made a man and a woman...They were sent to earth from the stars.
All animals are our relations.And we start our prayers with all our families and relations...We are all made from the same creator !!! So there you have it !!!
The tribe is considered to have the most beautiful people of all Native American tribes...
We are not farmers or sheep herders...We are Warriors and hunters. Living off our own land that the creator blessed us with.
My tribe is considered to be very friendly but have short tempers and will fight at the drop of a hat !!!
The boy's in my tribe are considered to be men at the age of 8 years old and they will go in the sweat lodge to be blessed with a man's name by my medicine man.After we have been blessed and given our name we can then go out to battle with the Warriors.
The girls at birth are named names like Sweet Woman,Sun Woman etc.There is always a woman at the end of their names.
Most last names have the word big in front of it like mines Bigfoot, Big left Hand etc...
We are taught at a very young age to have respect for all living things.And all things have life in them. And come from the earth. Such as aluminum etc...A properly raised child will not kick a can or throw a rock cause it has living minerals and life in it.As so does the water.

The Tribal protocol is strict and the women must always carry them self in a proper way.
Warriors carry them self with pride and honor and they protect the women and children with a great fierceness...

Northern Cheyenne men only have one wife and we do not eat dogs like the other tribes heehee !!!

Or social gatherings are called Powwow's. And we also have special days to honor our elders...
We love and respect our elders and treat them like diamonds.
An elder is never left without a family with in our tribe. If they have no family or no one to take care of them they will be taken care of by a family so they can have a happy life knowing they are loved and cherished...
There's so much more with so little time to talk about. I will update you on certain things as we go along.
Friday I will start Story telling and after that courting and marriage protocal. Something I know Kiddo And Sweet Pepper will love...
My bro Raffi and the single guys will love to learn how to do a traditional courtship !!!
Sky can learn a few things too.Instead of waiting on BB'S wedding date he can do a trick marriage heehee !!!

I need to know who are the most oldest birds on BC...
There will be something very special for them.

Love Panther

  Hey Mikey
Today is my first blog for my BOTM run...I'll be sending you more blogs this month and hope you enjoy them...

Today is my introduction of myself for those of you who don't know me...For those of you who do know me, we are so blessed to have run across each others paths...

My name is Panther Bigfoot...I am the grandson and of many generations of the Northern Cheyenne Native American Tribe.
My big brother Kevin Bigfoot is my owner.He is in the U.S Army and he fights for us and our freedom...

I was rescued on the Panthers football field after a football
game in which my big brother played football for...
One dark and cold night I came out of the dark still a baby...
I was cold and starving and needed help.
My mommy and Kevin picked me up and brought me to my new forever home...
I am now part of my loving family and part of the greatest tribe of Warriors in Native American history...

This month I will be taking you to a place in time that not too many know about and still exists...
The Northern Cheyenne Indian reservation in Lame deer Montana.

All the accounts are real and as a baby I used to listen to our elders tell us about the real truth.
All these words are spoken from generation to generation and have not changed.

Starting Thursday I will be taking you there so be ready for an adventure about my family,tribe and friends and our customs !!!
Much Love to all of you...

Love your buddy
Panther

Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

Cappy asks if I'm back to normal now - yes, no more sore spot - I'm feeling great. Thank you.

Happy Friday. A beautiful day here today - sadly it's supposed to be cold and heavy pouring rains all weekend.

Dad got the toilet fixed (silly flimsy workings never hold up very long) and all is well.
--
Dad and friends went to a local little theater last night to see a production of the musical "THE WILD PARTY". A fabulous show presented by a local theater group. They had front-row seats so it was like they were in the middle of the wild party itself. Dad behaved himself and didn't get up to sing and dance. A fun night at the theater.

After that, they head over to Rock’n Roller Coaster. After waiting in line, they load into their Super Stretch Limo, and take off at 60 mph. They speed through the tracks, and on two upside-down loops, and totally enjoy it. Next they see Beauty and the Beast Live, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and Muppet Vision 3D. Then they go on the Great Movie Ride. After, they head to 50’s Prime Time Café for dinner, and then leave the park and head to their hotel. They are staying at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort.

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are going to visit Honolulu, Hawaii. We are all going to have lots of fun! The first thing we are going to do is snorkel. Let’s head over to the Pier!” They arrive at the Hilton Pier in Waikiki. They get on a little boat, and are taken out in the ocean. Once the boat stops, they put on their masks and fins, and get into the water. As soon as they look down in the water, they are amazed by how clear and blue it is. They are in Turtle Canyon, so as they snorkel, they see beautiful Green Sea Turtles. They also see pretty fish and coral. They really enjoy it. After their snorkeling trip, they go to see the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. It is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941 in Pearl Harbor. After visiting there, they visit Manoa Falls. They have to hike to see it, so they start their journey across a bridge, and slowly hike up along the sides of the deep rainforest valley. The trail is gorgeous, and they very much enjoy their surroundings. After about a half hour hike, they reach the waterfall. It is absolutely stunning. They enjoy the beautiful view and wonderful sounds for awhile before hiking back. When they get back, Jester suggests that Peatree and Picabo should have a Hatchday lunch together, and they agree that it would be fun. They get dropped off at a cute little restaurant, and then Jester leaves with the rest of his friends. He has a special plan. They head to the beach, and set up a surprise party for their two friends. About an hour later, Jester heads back to the restaurant to pick up Pea and Picabo. They ask where everyone else is, but Jester ignores the question. They arrive at the beach, and are greeted with a loud “SURPRISE!” as they approach the set up. There are lots of colorful balloons, a big frosted cake, and “Happy Hatchday Peatree and Picabo!” is written in the sand. The two are very surprised, and thank all their friends for planning something so wonderful for them. Everyone sings ‘Happy Birthday’, and the two Hatchday birds blow the candles out. They all have cake, and then chat and dance on the beach until sunset. After, they all head to their hotel, order room service, and play games until bed. They had a very fun day! – Thanks for voting for me! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! :) See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are going to Austin, Texas. Our first stop is going to be Lady Bird Lake, where we are going to go canoeing. Let’s head over there now!” Jester and his friends arrive at the lake, and head to the Rowing Dock to get their canoes. They load into canoes in pairs of two, and head out on the lake. Things go well, until Raffikki & TiPaul and Cookie & Polly decided to race in their canoes. This ends with Raffikki and TiPaul getting their canoe flipped, but they are helped back in, and then they continue down the lake (with no more racing). When they are done canoeing, they head into Zilker Park. They have a brunch picnic, and fly some kites. After their picnic, they head to Bullock Texas State History Museum. They explore the museum, and learn lots of history. They visit the La Belle Exhibit, which is pretty cool. Next they head to the Blanton Museum of Art, where they see lots of artwork. Their next stop is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. They see tons of gorgeous flowers. They take pictures as they admire and smell the flowers. Next they visit the Texas State Capitol, where they take a tour. After their tour, they head to Ballet Austin, where they see Hamlet, a contemporary ballet, based on the classic Shakespearean story of a young man and his incredible family drama. They really enjoy it. After the ballet, they head to a steak house for dinner, and then check into a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Dad and a friend went to a special late-night showing of a wonderful Indian film on Thursday:
"Pacher Panchalli" (1955, Dir; Satyajit Ray) . The film is the first of a trilogy
[The Apu Trilogy] and the world is celebrating the wonderful restoration of these films.
The movie showing started at 9:45 pm, which is normally Dad's bedtime. He says it was well-worth the effort to see this special movie.

On Tuesday Dad was gone a good deal of the day, taking friends across town to the doctors.
Afterwards they all went to the pancake house for food.
--
In the afternoon, Dad joined a couple friends to see the film "LOVE AND MERCY" about Brian Wilson.
Bad rains for the drive and doctor visits, then bright sunshine when they were inside for the movie - isn't that the way they say it goes.

Dad and Uncle Geno were here in the evening, so I did get some time with both of them.

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are headed to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We are going to be going to Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country, and I think we are going to have a lot of fun! Let’s head on over to Splash Country!” They arrive at the water park, and once inside, Jester asks them what they want to do first. Hulk and Cappy say that they should do a water slide, so they head over to Mountain Scream. At the top, they choose the quadruple-drop slide to go down, one by one, they all slide down. The slide was super fun! Next they head to the Big Bear Plunge, a white water rafting adventure ride. They load into large rafts in groups of 5. Jester shares his tube with Jolie, Norman, Kiddo, and Panther. They have tons of fun on the raft ride! After, Tango suggests that they go and do the Downbound Float Trip. So they head over to do that, and all sit in tubes and float down the river. It is very fun and relaxing. Next they head over to RiverRush, which is a water coaster. They load into long tubes in groups of 4, and ride the water coaster. They have lots of fun! After a few more slides, and a trip to the Cascades, they dry off, and head over to Dollywood. Once they arrive, they decide to go on the Shooting Star Drop Tower. They load on the ride, and then it slowly goes up, and then drops back down! Next, they go on the Sky Rider and Mystery Mine. After, Queen Sweetie asks if they can go see the Smokey Mountain String Band. They go see the show, and really enjoy the music! After the show, Picabo asks if they can go on the Tennessee Tornado. Jester is all for it, so they head over to the coaster. It is thrilling; they go down a 128-foot drop at 70mph! Next they go on the Wonder Wheel, and enjoy the view from the top. They do plenty more rides; they go on Thunderhead, the Village Carousel, Lemon Twist, and Dizzy Disk. They also see shows! They see Kingdom Heirs, Heartsong, and the Dreamland Drive-In. They have tons of fun! After, they eat dinner at the Backstage Restaurant, and then head to the DreamMore Resort. They play some card games and talk about their fun day before heading to bed. – Thanks so much for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Mikey D!
“Hi Every Birdie! I’m so sorry we didn’t go on a trip yesterday. When mom got home last night, she had such a horrible headache and couldn’t look at the computer screen to blog for me. But it is gone now, so we can continue with our journey today! Today we are going to continue our visit to Washington, DC. Let’s head over to the subway, and we can go back to the center of DC and get some breakfast.” Jester and his friends get on the subway, and go back to the center of DC. Once there, they find a place to eat. After breakfast, they head to the United States Capitol, which is a monument and working office. They take a tour, which starts with a 13 minutes film in the orientation theaters. After the video, they see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall. When they are done, they head over to the Vietnam Memorial Wall. The wall has the names of all the dead and missing from the war. It gives them chills, and they stand there in silence for awhile, reading the names. When they are finished, they head over to the National Zoological Park. They explore the zoo, and see lots of beautiful animals. They see the Giant Pandas, Mei Xiang, Tian Tian. They see Asian Elephants, and American Bison. After the zoo, they go to look at the White House. They get there, and admire the beautiful building. After they are done looking and have taken pictures, they head to the Washington Monument. When they get there, they take an elevator to the top. At the 500’ level, they go to the observation deck. The view from the top is awesome. They enjoy the view and take pictures for awhile, before heading to the 490’ level museum, and then back to the bottom. Once they are at the bottom, they head off for dinner. After dinner, they head back to the hotel. They have a band and dancing there in the evening, so the birdies hang out and listen to the band and dance a bit before heading back to their rooms. – Thanks so much for voting for me! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Hi, Friends
Saturday was the start of Dad's favorite weekend of the year -
The Allentown Art Festival -this was the 58th year for this huge outdoor festival of arts, crafts and food along the streets of the Allentown District in Buffalo, NY. Artists come from all over to be in this prestigious event.
Besides art, of course there is food, crowds, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes and the joy of Summer finally coming to the Buffalo area.
--
Nothing particular for birds, but the weekend gets Dad in good spirits, which is always nice.
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

  Hi Mikey D!
“Hi Guys! Today, we are going to Washington, DC. Our first stop is going to be the Smithsonian, let’s go!” The birds all hop on a subway that takes them to the center of DC. Once they get off the subway, they walk to the Smithsonian. The building is huge! They enter the building, and the first thing they see is a beautiful statue of an African Elephant. They also see a big pendulum that is so perfectly balanced that it stays in motion constantly. They see the big dinosaur skeletons, which Falco, Peppino, and Willie really enjoy. They go to the gems and minerals exhibit, and see the Hope Diamond. It is supposedly cursed! Bad things happened to all the people who owned it, but apparently being in the museum broke the curse. They visit the Hall of Human Origins and the Sant Ocean Hall. They explore a bit more, before heading off to the Jefferson Memorial. In the memorial, they see the 19-foot statue of Thomas Jefferson, and excerpts from the Declaration of Independence. Next they head to the Lincoln Memorial. It features a solitary, 19-foot-tall statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting in contemplation, which is flanked on both side chambers with inscriptions of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address and arguably his most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address. When they are finished there, they pick out a place for dinner. After dinner, they hop back on the subway and head to their hotel. They stay at the famous old Biltmore Hotel. Once in the hotel, they all gather together. “I hope you all had a great time today! There is still quite a bit more to do, so we are going to be seeing some more of DC tomorrow. So get some rest tonight, because we are going to have more fun tomorrow!” – Thanks so much for voting for me! I love you guys! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are back in the US, and heading over to Chicago, Illinois. Our first stop is going to be Grant Park. Let’s go!” They arrive at the park, and stroll through it. They head to the center of the park to see the Buckingham Fountain, one of the largest fountains in the world. They watch the fountain’s water show, and they all love it. After the water show, they head over to the Art Institute of Chicago. They see a Charles Ray Sculpture exhibition, they visit an interactive puppet installation, and see a ton of paintings. Next, they head over to Willis Tower, also known as Sears Tower, which is the second tallest building in the US. They head up to the 103rd floor. Once on they are up, they head out on the Ledge, a glass balcony extending four feet outside the building. It is a bit scary on the Ledge, but the view is awesome. After they head back down, they go over to the Lincoln Park Conservatory. When they arrive, they take a Docent tour. It is absolutely gorgeous, with all the plants and flowers. They all enjoy looking around very much. Next, they head over to Navy Pier, and go to Seadog Boat Cruises. They go on a 75 minute guided architectural tour on the Chicago River. It is tons of fun! After, they go on the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel. When they are done, they head out for dinner and then check into a hotel and watch movies together. – Thanks for voting for me! See you tomorrow!

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are leaving the US, and heading to London, England! I think that we are going to have a lot of fun there. I know we can fly, but it would be a long flight for us, so let’s go catch a plane!” Jester and his friends head to the airport, and take a long plane ride to England. They arrive at night, and eat dinner and check into a hotel. When they wake up the next morning, they eat breakfast, and are ready to start their adventures. “I hope you got good sleep last night, because we are going to have a long and fun day! Our first stop is going to be to see the Big Ben, let’s go!” They arrive at the famous clock tower, and Picabo suggests that they should fly up and sit on the hands of the clock. They all agree that it would be fun, and fly up! They perch up on the clock hands for a few minutes before heading off to their next destination. Their next stop is Buckingham Palace. They take a tour of the state rooms, and they think that they are gorgeous. Next, they head over to the British Museum. They see lots of interesting things while touring the museum, like Greek statues and medals of the sun king. When they are done at the museum, Panther and Oki ask if they could get fish and chips for lunch. The birds all agree that fish and chips sound good, and head to a little restaurant. After a delicious lunch, they head over to the London Eye Ferris Wheel. They take a ride on it, and enjoy the lovely view from the top. After, they head over to the Globe Theatre, and see Shakespeare’s King John. It is a wonderful performance, and they all enjoy it. When they are done, they head back to their hotel. They all talk about what a great day they had, and what their favorite things were. Jolie says that her favorite was the London Eye, Hulk really enjoyed Big Ben, and Cookie really liked the museum. After awhile, they all fall asleep. They wake up early the next morning and take a plane back to the US. – Thanks for voting for me! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

“Hi Guys! Today we are going to head over to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We are going to visit Independence Hall first, let’s go!” Jester and his friends arrive at Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was debated and adopted. They take a tour, and learn all about the history that happened in that building. Next, they head over to the Liberty Bell Center. They enter the building, and go through a series of exhibit rooms discussing the construction of the bell, its place as witness to the birth of the United States, and how it grew into a symbol against slavery and eventually all civil rights causes. They then watch a short video summarizing the Liberty Bell’s place in American history. They then go and see the bell. It is all very exciting! Next, they go to a cheesesteak shop, for delicious Philly Cheesesteaks. They chat while they eat lunch, and talk about what they’ve seen so far. When they are done eating lunch, they head over to the Philadelphia Zoo. They walk through the zoo, and see lots of animals. Kallie and Dixie really like the Sloth Bear, and Sugar is fascinated with the White Bellied Spider Monkeys. When they are done at the zoo, they head over to The Franklin Institute Museum. There is a lot to do and see there! They construct and test their own mars rovers, visit the Franklin Memorial, explore a giant heart, and do some other things. They have lots of fun! When they are finished, they head over to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They see lots of great artwork there, and find all the different paintings interesting. After they are done there, they head to a hotel for the night. – Thanks for voting for me! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Mikey D
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this first day of June. I have greatly enjoyed sharing with all my friend this past month. It has been mind provoking and educational for me and I have gained some awesome insight too. Sharing is after all what Flockcall.com is all about. The Advocate writers share from their daily life with Parrots. It offers the opportunity for everyone to share, express their thoughts, ideas and insights in a safe, nonjudgmental and encouraging form.
I am the last of the Sky Flock to run for BOTM. I follow a long line of worthy predecessors, King SKY, King Amando, King Casey, King Jesse, Queen Little Angel, Queen Angel Girl and Queen Zeena. I must say it has been a fun month and a great privilege to get to know each of you better in the process. The current Companion Parrot Crisis is far from over, and there are, as we revealed, no hard- fast rules or ways to resolve the issue. Too many Parrots, too few good, forever homes is at an epidemic level. If I venture to say, "all we can do is our best to share what life is truly like with a Companion Parrot." Perhaps one person at a time we can make an impact and make change for the better. If we do nothing, the problem won't just away.
I am one of the fortunate ones, I ended up in a safe place, and received the emergency medical care I required. The story often has a sad ending for many others who disappear never mourned or missed. Their life from start to tragic end a story of misunderstanding, neglect and sometimes intentional abuse. It is heart-breaking but none the less a reality for many Parrots.
I want to thank everyone for their daily votes and participation this past month. You have made my month purposeful. I hope that the sharing of information which once was Bird Channel will continue as we head into the future. I am now off to finish chewing my wooden blocks. It's a rainy day and perfect for some serious Parrot recreation.
Thank-you all for the honor bestowed on me, as receiving the title Queen Sweetie this morning. I tried to visit you all yesterday but BC would not let me post any blogs. Geesh. I would not have got here today without each and every one of you.
with love and hugs
Sweetie

Dad ordered a new chair for the living room - apparently has to be made and shipped before it comes to our home so I can poop on it.

  Hi King Mikey D
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here with our Saturday blog. This month sure has flown by quickly. It seems like just yesterday I wrote my very first words, and now I an coming to a month's conclusion. I wish to thank everyone of you for your votes towards my quest for the Throne. Although it is not my ultimate goal, it is part of it. My main goal was to start some serious sharing and that goal has been far surpassed. Your input and comments are encouraging, and inspiring. We are but, one small group for Parrot lovers. Can you imagine what impact we could have if every Companion Parrot owner united the World over?
There is a sad trend among humans to disagree and even fight over what in fact equals nothing vital nor important to us Companion Parrots. All one has to do is view a photo on FB of a Parrot and dog to see the level of anger and opinions. No one asks if someone was supervising the interaction, or about the past relationship of the two. I am not referring to obvious dangerous situations were the bird could be in danger of injury or worse. Post a photo of a Parrot climbing into a cupboard, then read the comments left by others. There is obviously someone close by supervising, after all who took the photos? Instead of fighting over such non-essentials why not focus on what really matters?
Parrots are individuals. We have such singular personalities that there is no hard-fast rules that can work for every bird, in every home, with every owner. While one owner snuggles their fid, and another one believes that you should only scritch the head and upper neck area, neither is wrong. One owner might feel you should keep wings trimmed for safety and another that fully flighted Parrots are the happiest, both are right, in their own personal Parront-Parrot relationships. Every situation is unique. What works for one, may not work for another. It does not make one person right or wrong, it just equals the truth about living with a Companion Parrot. There are no straight forward, fits-all answers when it comes to Parrontship.
The important point is that sharing is not criticism. Sharing is openness to new ideas, and views. If all the Parrot Rescues would learn to live peacefully together rather then back biting they would accomplish so much more. That does not mean turning our backs on obvious wrong treatment, misuse of funds donated and outright abuse and neglect. Rather accepting that every Rescue, like every owner (yuck, there's that word again) is a separate unique situation. As long as there is mankind there will be good and bad. that is a sad given reality. Support those who are doing their best to help the Parrot Crisis.
Tell yourself each and every day that, "I AM a Companion Parrot Ambassador" and use your power to spread the word " ADOPT! DON'T SHOP!" and make a change one person at a time. YOU have the power.

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.

  Hi King Mikey D
Hello everybirdie. It's the weekend again and also the end of the month draws ever closer. I have had a wonderful month sharing and reading all your awesome thoughts, ideas and suggestions. The Companion Parrot Crisis is huge, far more then one small blue-fronted Amazon can tackle on her own but together with each of you we can and will make a difference. The general populous needs education and enlightenment about sharing their lives with one of us feathered wonders. As you all have so eloquently pointed out, we ARE NOT at all like owning a dog or cat. No one can own a Parrot. While dogs and cats are domesticated, Parrots are not, and never will be truly humanized. There is a problem when humans begin to rationalize our behaviors in humanistic terms. Our behaviors and responses are based on instinctive and learned responses just as those of our wild cousins. We can be trained to do tricks through positive re -enforcement but we can not be controlled or expected to obey commands as a dog will.
One point I have observed in my short 2 years of life is that people tend to judge us by our species not by our individual personalities. Not all Macaws lunge, not all Cockatoos bite and scream, not all Amazons are aggressive and unpredictable. The list goes on and on. We are singular beings, and although certain traits are inheritable we are also influenced by our past experiences. Companion Parrots can not be generalized into "types" any more then all humans are the same.
My hope and desire is that one day there will be no need for Parrot Rescues, and every Parrot will have a loving forever home of its own. The abuse and neglect will be in the past and every Parrot will know happiness and never experience fear or terror. Will that world ever come? No, but if even one Parrot can be freed from pain, released from it's caged prison, and receive it's very first spark of hope my life will be rewarded, and my purpose on Earth fulfilled. Momma Deb says she will not rest until she knows changes have come, until Rescues are not forced to turn away unwanted Parrots from lack of space and funds. Her goal is awareness, education and to make a change even one person, one Parrot at a time. She has no magic formula for making it happen, but as long as she has a voice she has the power to see it happen. One voice can start a war, so many voices speaking up for us can surely start a Worldwide movement to better the lives of ALL Companion Parrots, end Poaching and legalized trapping of Wild Parrots for profit.
The logo for our Rescue is ADOPT! DON'T SHOP! a universal phrase that says it all. It is spring and countless thousands of babies will hatch from eggs. Ten years from now where will they be? Will they be in loving homes? Will they be in Rescues? Their fourth homes? How many will have died from abuse, neglect at the hands of mankind?

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.
