Sweetie was brought to our private bird rescue on May 4th 2014 suffering from a broken leg which had occurred on April 23 2014 but had not been treated. After much investigation it was discovered that she had visited a Vet. in Brampton, Ont. Upon contact with this clinic it was agreed upon to take Sweetie there for surgery on her leg. Unfortunately due to the former owners reluctance to have it treated or surrender her for almost 2 weeks it had become very infected. Sweetie under went surgery on May 13th to amputate her then hopelessly damaged leg. She has rebounded wonderfully and is going to live a happy, healthy life here with our Sly Flock!.

  Hey Sweetie
I strongly believe that parrots should have fruits and vegetation in our diet. Seed is good but it should be a well balanced meal.
With everything combined or eaten seperate.

  Hi beautiful Sweetie, my V4U from Jen Lynn
Our future mom called dad the other evening, and as usual her voice lit up our mundane little home, she is such a peach, very much like our aunt Eileen! They talked about the sad day when I will go live with RB, Kelley, and my old friend Art Alex! It will be an adjustment, but I can wait! Dad does not feel very well again today so he will be cutting back a little bit, he is not sick, just don't feel good, you all have had that feeling before! TGIF as they say, and please give our love to all in your Friday home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jennifer, & my Dallas family

  Hi Sweetie!!
Here is another vote for you!! Mom cleaned all of our cages this morning and whenever she runs the vacuum, I decide that it is time to take a bath. Lol I sure made a mess in my cage (right after mom cleaned it, too)!! We have w bird feeder that sticks to the window of the house and we have been seeing house finches sitting on it and eating from it; and their babies are on it, too....and the adults are feeding their babies!! It sure is fun to watch them. Have a great weekend!

  Sweetie DAY TWENTY-NINE
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?

  Heya, Sweetie!
The thing that Mom finds is that people don't understand how much personality we have, and how great we are. She always stresses that we are a lifelong commitment and that it is not all roses with us, but that if our parronts take the time to make sure we are loved, and spend time with us, and feed us good things...we are wonderful flock members. Guess most folks know about dogs and cats, but they don't really understand that us feathered creatures have just as much charm as those two.

Wing hugs coming your way!

Our parronts talk about us to anyone who is interested. They always point out how having birds is so different from having dogs & cats as pets. We are unique, but require a lot of time and care. Most people have no idea & it makes them think.

Sorry I wasn't on last night. We had power outages and the internet was down all night.
Have to tell you this.
It was hard here at first because I wasn't used to being touched or cuddled. I soon learned to love it. My mom went away on vacation and I stayed home with dad. He is greyt but not mom. When she came home a week later it was late at night. I heard her voice and started crying like no one has ever heard before or since. She opened my door and out I came. I couldn't pushed into her neck any harder. We cuddled and talked for a long time. Then I had to get some sleep. Mom says that was when she knew how much I really loved her.
Now, we will be moving to a different state hopefully by Christmas and I'm eggcited too.

  Sweetie DAY TWENTY-EIGHT
Happy Thursday to all my friends. Sweetie here once more with our BOTM blog. I did miss yesterday as momma Deb was called upon at a moments notice to help out with a rather difficult birdie related situation. All went well, and it has a happy, satisfactory ending. Today we get all Momma's attention and she promises extra treats for everybirdie who was so well behaved yesterday when our friend King Mikey D's Momma helped get us ready for bed.
Our month is quickly coming to an end. We have shared some very timely and sensitive issues and discussion and I truly hope each of us has learned a little or a lot from one another's experiences. A life with a Companion Parrot is never dull, never ordinary and certainly never boring. No two species are alike, and among like species we each have our own extraordinary individuality and quirks. Some of us are as bold as a lion, others as shy as a mouse, yet we all possess the inherit ability to melt our Parront's heart, worm our way into their every thought and garner their love and respect. I wish that this description was universal, and it grieves my little Blue-Fronted Amazon heart that at this very moment, Parrots are suffering untold neglect, abuse or worse death at the hands of mankind. Never did my Momma Deb in her wildest thoughts think she would ever be writing as a Companion Parrot Advocate. That she would be one of the ones to stand up against our mistreatment and to put up the fight for our rights. Life has a way of changing suddenly, and if we allow it, it can transform a one time breeder into a Parrot Spokesperson.
I am only one Parrot, but I want to encourage each of you to take the challenge to become a Companion Parrot Ambassador. Never doubt your ability to bring about change. Whether you are a "get in your face" type, or a "quiet, shier one at a time" personality type we ALL can make a difference. Just imagine if every bird loving Parront spoke to just one person about life with a Parrot, about proper care, feeding or even shared what it is like to be owned by one of us, the impact would be fantastic. We could make change, stop improper selection of species for first time would be Parronts, change how one Parrot is treated, or how it is viewed within it's own family situation. We might open a cage door closed for years, allow a Parrot to begin to enjoy better food, have room to move in it's cage at last, find out how much fun a toy can be, or receive the Veterinarian care it needs and deserves. You would be shocked at how many do not know that their Parrot should be seen by a Veterinarian regularly. The number who feel a Parrot only needs peanuts and sunflower seeds. We need YOUR voice to make change happen.
NOW FOR TODAY"S QUESTION: It is not a question at all. Please continue to share YOUR special MOMENT(S) with your fids with us. They are interesting, educational and encouraging to read. Your experience might make a difference for someone else too.
