Hi! My name is Baju

Peach-Faced Lovebird

string cheese. Everytime I opened a string cheese he came over to get a big beak full.

on my shoulder and above the curtains

Being separated from his mate;


none, but had unusual yellow spots in middle of top of head (his sister has this, too) and on wings/thighs. He's very pretty..

Baju was the sweetest lovebird. His sons are all sweet as well. He was the best bird dad and took excellent care of his mate and chicks..

  oh Hiiiii what a surprise
Hello Balu and flock, I was so happy first to get a note from you. Of course Sunshine must be with a special someone because there hasn't been any word or signs of him. I did go to our local Wildlife Center associated with the Humane Society and I spoke to and again made report of Sunshine being lost/gone. They like everyone encourages me "not to give up" Keep walking, calling his name, do the whistles he knows, keep inquiring etc. It's a list and a daily job sometimes but I don't care with what I have to do, but just a sign or visual would help me think I will find him or at least see him other than in my real like dreams. So I keep devoted in praying and I do get physical messages from God because I have an intimate relationship that I adopted over the years to know God hears my prayers and God has humanly led me to places I don't plan to go or unexpected and the message is there its something I can see and touch that comes to me. So this is the spiritual love and closeness I live with in my heart with Jesus and it all works together. God is Great and I am being told Sunshine is fine but I am certain he is disorientated and isn't able to find the area where he lived or its surroundings perhaps the area has began to look alike to him. So by my calling and whistling and so many people, I mean many people, including you are praying for him to come home. Thank you from my heart. I am sure in time I will see my favor from God. Do you know somebody mentioned for me to put a ad on Craigs list. I forgot. The Wildlife Center reminded me also. They also posted his big photo in their center as many people come there. Was an amazing place. People told me Sunshine would come home for my birthday maybe as it was Sunday March 3rd, but do you know he came in my dream that was real like on the following Monday morning instead on the 4th. I am thinking that Sunshine and I are mentally attached.
I truly appreciate that you wrote me and I am happy when people ask because that also keeps me active and positive. Thank you so much for your writing and I send you my big hugs with love to the whole flock. *wink* God bless you and all your loved ones. Patricia & Sunshine thanks you too.

Come visit me, Spring & Sunshine.

I have prayed and God does send me physical messages that I retrieve and this confirms he is in God's care. I thank God and I wait with HOPES. I appreciate your keeping the prayers for us. I will try to come here again. Even if its about my search or stories. I keep the search alive and people also are in this search with me. God brought some wonderful people to my life. I will write you again. Big hugs & Love, Patricia

Come visit me, Spring & Sunshine.

  Hi Again,
I'm sorry I guess the entire story didn't come across. I think you got most of it. That's where we are today. I did some work in my yard and put Sunshine's cage way up in the air with his stuffed pets on top with hopes he'll see them and come home. Its sad when I go out there and don't see him but I keep my trust in the Lord and keep my faith & hopes high. I thank you for asking and I send you my love & hugs, Patricia *Sunshine's mommie*

Come visit me, Spring & Sunshine.

  Hello Baju
I appreciate your asking about Sunshine if he come home yet. But I am afraid to say "no" not yet. I shared my story with Erin mommie of Raffi. I would like to share the same story with you and others that ask about my Sunshine as I know he is somehwere out there and I wait his return. Please read on: my story to Raffi/Erin

Hi Raffi & Erin, I want to thank you (delayed & so sorry) from your asking about Sunshine on 2/3/13. I failed to come to the site as I was grieving perhaps differently. I also have other personal setbacks on top of missing Sunshine. I have however kept all my Faith in God, praying all the time thanking God for keeping Sunshine alive and well & bring him home to me on the wings of a dove. I've been receiving comforting physical messages from God. I am very spiritually intimate with God & Jesus in my heart. My praying is effective but God's will is on his timing not mine. I had 2 very real like dreams about Sunshine flying home thru a horrible rainstorm Monday morning 6:08am Feb 7th (a month to the date he flew away).He was soaked & had these tiny little flower petals pink & white all over his shivering body. I saw him in his cage on his perch and I put my finger in to retrieve him. He come and I held him close to my chest and wrapped a hand towel around his shivering body as I used to do after bathing him. THEN I WOKE.
4 days later on Friday 11th at 8:11am I dreamed again.(again to the date one month ago when neighbor spotted him very early morning in neighbors tree) The dream was my x-husband to be was visiting and we tried searching for him night before calling his name whistling late night 1030pm out around the area behind my no luck. So next day Friday morning the dream was my husband found & caught him and I was in bathroom and he walked in house with Sunshine cupped in his palms and he quickly showed me and I was so happy. My husband put him in the cage and when I finished bathroom I walked to cage and saw him there. I WOKE UP.
The next day being Saturday, my husband still here visiting. Early morning was raining but had stopped and was clearing and sun came out and became very nice day. Mid day maybe 2 or 3pm ish...I opened front door and walked out and was breathing the freshined air and suddenly I heard exactly Sunshines "whistle" me and my husband taught him several..It was so loud my husband heard it from where he was sitting on the couch and he got up off couch and come to door in surprise and we looked at each other knowing very well it was Sunshine's whistle...He and I looked around but never saw him. Then another bird was walking thru neighbors shrubs, couldn't see it just heard the noise. But those birds don't whistle like that & I often times see those birds walking on the branches walking thru the shrubs. But hearing it rustling thru the bushes made us think maybe it was Sunshine. The bird flew out across streat. Not Sunshine. So the mystery ramains. I have prayed and God does send me physical

Come visit me, Spring & Sunshine.

  Baju the Rainbow Bridge Poem
Rainbow Bridge
> Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
> When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that
> bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge. At the Rainbow Bridge, there are
> meadows, hills, and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special
> friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play,
> squawk and squeal and sing together
> There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream
> and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal
> clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as
> every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.
> One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their
> fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is a lot of glorious
> sunshine and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are
> warm and comfortable and totally at peace.
> All the birds that had been ill or old are restored to health and
> vigour and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine,
> their wing feathers are whole and their eyes gleam once again with
> vitality. Those who were hurt, maimed, ignored, or broken-hearted are
> made whole again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone
> by.
> The birds are happy and content. Except for one small thing: they each
> miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the
> bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and
> noisily
> together: even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegal, the tiniest
> finches and the grandest macaws
> But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far
> into the distance. Her body freezes and her bright eyes are intent as
> she watches and listens in silence. Suddenly she begins to fly from
> the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and
> harder!
> You have been spotted - and she shrieks to you and then calls your
> name and her own and cries again and again, as she rushes towards
> you.When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in
> joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.
> Your face and your fingers and even your toes are covered with beak
> nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special
> beak, and her head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your
> hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy
> softness beneath.
> You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion, so long
> from your physical life on earth but never for an instant absent from
> your heart. Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved
> wings and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love,
> you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

Come visit me, Sunflower, FRODO & Luvie Family.
