1 year old   M

Lutino Mutation Cockatiel





Spring jumps from perch to perch with such energy & zest. It's comical.

she's so funny, talks to me in different voices, cares so much about me and shows me lots of attention. She's a sweet & fun mommy to me.

gets sticky honey food on his beek & chin feathers. I need to create/make a birdie bib (hehe).

"keep an open heart".

  Hi Spring
I think your mom should definitely call back the woman who has the found bird now that she's had a few days to think and some advice on how to see if it's Sunshine. As for you, you have to make her love you, too. You are a little sweetheart, Spring! We would hate to think of you trying to find a new home now that you've found Patricia. She seems to be a very nice person, and you two will bond, given time and patience. Hugs, hugs, hugs, to all of you, Gizmo

  Well All You Can Do Is TRY To Make Contact.....
.....with the owners, that is the woman the original had spoken to & given the cockatiel to. She may not want you to claim her! All you can tell yourself is that you've tried. You've done a lot to try to find your bird. I'm so very sorry about them being so selfish, but you should feel good that Sunshine seems to have a nice home. We are still hoping the best for you all! Hugs to your good Momma & all your flock! SamIAm

  Hi Spring
Tell mom that the discoloration on the tail might be from his time away from her. Also, the thin appearance could be from not finding a good source or being chased away from a good source of food/water. Is there a special thing that mom and Sunshine did? A special place on her that he stood, a special perch he liked a lot? If so, she should see if this bird responds to that. It's hard to tell, because a lot of 'tiels have the same markings, but if it's Sunshine, he might recognize a special whistle, call, trick, perch, food treat, whatever. Maybe if mom goes to see him again, she can bring one of his stuffed toys and see if he recognizes that? Just a thought... Hope it turns out to be little Sunshine, though! Hugs, Gizmo

  My Thoughts On If That Was Sunshine Or Not....
.....hmmmm...Well, I think the calmest bird that there is would certainly become more nervous & 'shakey' because that is their survival instincts taking over. And those would come ROARING back if Sunshine figured out he/she is very far from his nest. One way to do this, push his cage outside if you can. If they SEE it, oh yes! They will remember all the food, love, toys, security, and happiness they experienced there & will fly to it!!

Ten miles away isn't that far for a bird to fly. Especially one trying to fly for a distance which is taxing for a bird not used to doing it. Winds also can carry your bird for a very long way with little effort on his part other than holding his wings out! Landing, flying downwards, those are very hard maneuvers to master. As they are for human fliers, too! Seeing other birds, especially during Spring time when hormone levels are more intense & competition for females are high. Territorial birds that usually aren't "cranky" can become so during Spring. So, yes, I would expect while Sunshine was trying to survive, water & food would have been very HARD to find. But for that long a time, parrots are much smarter than the outside birds & could've learned where people had feeders & bird baths at quite easily. That would explain a skinnier version of what your memory holds.

Was there ANY whistle, sound, word, the two of you did together? That would be one way of testing. Remember those cockatoos I told you about? That was the ONLY distinguishing thing that the rescue had taught them. They had a little game or trick they would play with the birds. The trainer would fold up a dollar bill quite tightly, then give it to the bird who would then go over to a cup, jar, whatever, and put it in!! They DID that with these birds and even after 4 months, Miss Emmy, the last one found, she remembered it & DID it!! So, it wouldn't hurt for your good Momma to find out FOR SURE whether it is Sunshine or not! It might take a couple of visits. If that is alright with the person who found them. Even have Mom hold her/him(?) to see if he may just run up her arm & snuggle her ear!

That is a hard place to be, a parront of a lost parrot. Our prayers go out to all of you! And that's one thing, too, those prayers do help! Hugs, SamIAm

  Oh! Hello Spring! I Didn't Realize You Have Lost
....a flock-mate! I hope Sunshine is found! I know for a fact that birds can be found again! Me & Mom just celebrated yesterday, Saturday, the return of 2 stolen birds that were stolen right out of a rescue center for parrots! They by the Lord, and the hard work & persistence of the volunteers helped both of them return finally! One of them even found a new home in her adventures! I hope Sunshine finds her way back home, too, with the help of people who know she's lost! There's this song that says, "Sunshine, on my shoulder makes me happy!" You must be the bird on the other shoulder!

I must say, there have been a lot of us here looking for Spring a whole LOT & then to have you arrive at the BC just in time! I expected something completely different. I envisioned something grassier & with more flowers & butterflies, BUT you make an excellent Spring and for birds, it's just fine & dandy! Perfectly perfect!

Hope your weekend has been good & that Sunshine has found her way home again! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hi Spring
Looks like you got some new visitors, heehee. Let us know if that's Sunshine as soon as you can, okay?
Well, we have a little catching up and explaining to do, I see. First of all, the trip to the spring garden show was wonderful! It featured all kinds of gorgeous blooms, which we will share when mom gets them off the phone and onto the computer. She might have time tomorrow for that.
Secondly, Biscuits Bingo is NOT played with dog or any other type of biscuits: it's just a name for the regular bingo event that lets people know the proceeds will benefit animal charities. Each of the sponsored charities is permitted to have a table with baskets they have brought. They sell tickets to clients of the bingo, who put those tickets into bags in front of the item they wish to win. They also do 2 50/50 raffles during the bingo. At the end of the event, they split the money the bingo earned among the participating charities. This year, it was ARL (YAY), Humane society, Animal Friends, Hog heaven, Bully buddies, Adopt-a-beagle, Rabbit Wranglers, Animal protectors, and Animal care and welfare. The ARL table earned $683 on their raffle items, probably because most of them had a bottle of vodka attached to the prize. They got this money in addition to their share of the bingo proceeds. All in all it was a great day! (Last year the center got $1100 from the event and raffle combined. This year, it's sure to be more.)
Today mom is leading a tour at the wildlife center, then going to the museum for 2 tours there, then going to dinner with a couple of old friends, so we will get some time with her after 8PM, I guess. Hope you have a great day, it's gonna be warm here! Hugs, Gizmo

  Hi Spring
I noticed that you posted a message to me on your page, it's easier for me to read if it's on MY page, heehee. I really truly hope that the found cockatiel is Sunshine!!! What terrific news that would be!
Mom worked Biscuits Bingo today, an event which helps 9 animal charities in our area. Their table made nearly $700, in addition to their share of the ticket sales, so it was a good day. Mom is exhausted, though, so we'll write more tomorrow! Hope you are having a lovely spring day wherever you are. Hugs, Gizmo

  Hi Gizmo
Good morning, thank you for the nice welcome and the info on the calendar page. I will check it out. As of this morning mommy got an alert email 8:42am that a lady said her husband found a cockatiel with a large wing span at a park not all that far from where me and Sunshine is living. Mom wrote her back fast because the lady wondering if maybe our missing Sunshine. Isn't that a nice email surprise? Let's pray and keep HOPE that God is working behind the scenes to help us find Sunshine to bring him home. The lady will hopefully call us so we can inquire. Mom was just talking this morning to God and me about "why" we couldn't get a spot on TV news to show Sunshine's picture and missing so people out there maybe help us. The TV news instead puts silly things and who cares if someone was out overnight in the dark in the Everglades and was rescued? I mean they are adult enough to know what and where they are going and should be prepared for the adventure....Anyway, mom talked to God last night and this morning about Sunshine so we wait with patience to hear from the emailer on the found Cockatiel in a park.
Keep ur prayers going up for us. Thanks Giz and have a very nice weekend. Hugs and love. Oh the call just come in from the found cockatiel. I was talking with the lady. Her name is Patricia also who is holding the found cockatiel. She talks like its Sunshine by the looks of it. She said he is beautiful and she said it sure sounds by everything you tell me (my telling her) that its my Sunshine. I will be going to see it tomorrow as the lady & husband has a event to go to today. IF anything, I am excited and also prepared for disappointment but I am reared up for excitement to know its Sunshine more than not. The lady seems so sure by what I told her. We'll soon find out. Most importantly that GOD is in my court and WE are destined to find Sunshine in time. (wink) Spring & I are keeping spiritually hopeful. C ya. xoxox

Come visit me, Spring & Sunshine.
