Angel is a rescue, from an extremely abusive home. She was locked in a closet for 8 years of her life, with little water or food, and no human interaction. How she remained such a sweet and affectionate bird baffles me, but I love her with all if my heart.. Awards

  Hi Angel
You're a very lucky girl to have gotten out of that terrible situation. I know a Moluccan that was blinded after being removed from a life in a dark closet. He is the sweetest bird I know. You're probably a very sweet little girl yourself. My boy Zeus is a rescue too. He loves to preen the feathers of little girls like you. It sounds like you're a good eater and have trained your mama well. Best wishes to you Angel.

Yay - we will have so much fun and I just know it won't take you a heartbeat to learn. Oooo, then maybe we could have a marathon. Mom did actually post a video of me dancing on BC. Check it out if you have time, I would value your opinion. Let me know when you'd like to get started. I can't wait! Vote for you sweetheart!

  January 16th Spotlight on Caring part 2
Spotlight On Caring--KIDDO part 2
January 16th Spotlight on Caring part 2
Hello all my BC friends! Sky here with the conclusion of my interview with Mr Kiddo and his wonderful Mom Pam. I must apologize that I failed to post Kiddo`s photo SKY: In what other ways are you involved in BC? KIDDO: My partner, RaneBeau, and I organize the monthly milonga, which is a virtual party which usually has a theme corresponding in some way with the month. For instance in October we had a cemetery tour to go with Halloween. In May we always have the Annual Milonga Derby to go along with the Kentucky Derby with the assistance of Chyna and her mom who are Derby afficianados. And we are always open to suggestions for a new theme or activities to go with a repeat theme. Don't be shy! We love it when other birdies get involved. That is what BC is all about. Community!
SKY: Are you involved with any bird rescues, clubs etc outside of BC? PAM: I truly wish the answer to this one was yes. I have been looking for a bird club in my area for years. There just aren't any. In fact, we rarely have Bird Fairs or Shows either, and I am so envious when I hear about the great ones in other parts of the country. I do sign on to the Animal Rescue Site every day and click to contribute to them, and when there is a contest I vote for the Oasis Sanctuary in AZ.
SKY: WHAT IS YOUR ONE THING you'd like to say about birds in general? PAM: Not all birds can be lucky enough to stumble in to a home where a bond like the one we have formed occurs. And although Dad is not bonded with Kiddo (Kiddo is jealous of him), he is understanding and never is mean to him (although he is not above a few terrible jokes about parrot stew).
And I hope all new parrot people do what I did and research to learn the things they need to know. The first food I bought for Kiddo was seeds, and his first cage was a parakeet cage (which he destroyed in less than one week). I learned very quickly by asking questions at the pet store, reading books from the library and subscribing to Bird Talk, that there is always something new to learn about these fascinating creatures who have so much love and companionship to give us when we are smart enough to recognize it.
SKY: Thank you Kiddo and Mom Pam for your insight into the BOTD/BOTM titles, and for sharing with us all for love for birds, and the wish that all owners would do their research BEFORE they buy the bird.
I am looking for other birds, flocks or individuals who would like to share about their interest in birds, how they got their bird(s) and how they try to make this world a better place for all us feathered beings. Please contact me asap so we can plan February's SPOTLIGHT'S on CARING.
with my heart filled with love

  Hi Angel
I am happy to know your Momma also helps you to fly. One day maybe your muscles will be strong again so you can glide or even fly. I sure do hope you and your Momma will consider allowing me to interview you for an upcoming Spotlight on caring. I will bring my last one for you to read.
love Sky

  Hi Angel
My name is SKY. I am a rescue bird too from awful abuse just like you. I write a weekly spotlight on Caring blog that I send out to everyone on my list.
Would you and your parront be interested in sharing your story so others will learn about the abuse and neglect that we birds suffer at the hands of some humans?
If so please have your human email my Momma Deb at
I would love to be friends. SKY

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD & Little Angel.

  Hi Angel
I'm so glad to hear that you made it out of the closet. You are so very lucky to have a good home. An M2 I know lost his eyesight due to a similar experience. My boy Zeus (U2) would like a pretty girl like you. He'd be grooming your feathers and making over you. He's a sweetie too. Come check him and his roommates out sometime.

  Hey pretty Angel
Thanks for coming to visit. We are so glad your mom gives you hugs! How would you like some dancing lessons? I love to dance and I would be more than happy to teach you. You are obviously a very smart bird so I know it wouldn't take long. Your mom says you're pigeon toed, but doesn't she mean cockatoo toed? LOL! My mom says you are welcome to fly by any time and visit us. There's always snacks to go with the dancing lessons. Big wing hugs and a vote for you pretty girl,

  Wow she looks great!!
So hard to believe people would have a bird or any animal and lock them up like that. Thanks to you she will have a much better rest of her life. Enjoy her. Diane

Come visit me, Charlie.

We flew by to introduce ourselves and give you vote number 2. I am a military macaw and my sis Mackenzie is a blue and gold macaw. We were so saddened to read about what happened to you in your former life. Like your mom said, it's amazing you are so sweet. We can tell just by looking at your picture and we are so happy you have such a good mom and good home now. We sure hope you will come to visit us. We love making new friends. Big wing hugs to you Angel.
