I lived at Second Chance Bird Rescue for a few months because my first parents didn't want to clean my cage. My mommy was looking for a little bird to live at her office as their mascot and she fell in love with me the first day she came to the rescue for a visit. I lived at the office for a few months but I didn't like everyone there - just a few people and my mom, so mommy took me home and now I'm all hers. My name was Zack because my first parents thought I was a boy. Well, mom loved me so much and I wasn't sure what to do so I laid an egg and she now calls me Zacharina. My mom also liked the rescue so much that she started volunteering there and she is now the vice president. She thinks that rescue birds are the best ever and wants them all to find forever homes like I did. I live with four other birdies now and although I am the smallest, I can make the biggest mess..

Hi! My name is Zacharina

I am a Quaker from Rochester, NY.

Zackers and pipsqueak

9 years old   F

Quaker

I like cashews. When my mom eats mixed nuts I like to pick out all the cashews and eat them and leave her the peanuts.

I like to sit on shoulders so I can squeak into ears and preen hair (beards too).

I don't like to be ignored. When I visit work with my mommy and she is busy, I climb down from my playgym and put a beak full of my food in the middle of her papers so she will know I want her to play with me instead.

I love my mommy because she doesn't care how messy I am. She takes me to work with her sometimes and I love to be with her all day.

I like to steal paper clips and rubber bands and hide them. Mom says I can't play with them so I try to hide them in my bowl, but she is smart and always finds them. I keep trying though. I bet someday I will hide one really good and mom won't find it..

Just because I'm small doesn't mean I can't play on the big bird gym..

  Hello from Cotton Ball
Hi Friends, I am experiencing my first snowfall today. I just watch out the window of course,....I also got to get out of the cage to play with visitors this afternoon. I love humans, my feathered mom and dad flit around the cage like wild birdies when Mommy comes to get me out for play time...I don't understand why they are afraid of her..She is so good to me..I get to ride on her shoulder...I am so glad to have you for a friend.. v4u...Cottonball

Yes, I talk to my Millet. Unfortunately, it doesn't talk back. Yet. I think it's just shy. I've also started doing what my Mom calls "Rejoicing my Water"...When she first brought me home, I didn't know how to drink water from a dish, just from one of those glass tubes that drips into a canal at the bottom of it, and Mom hated it cause it didn't work too well. So, she started teaching me how to drink out of a bowl. At first I was afraid of it, but she'd dip her fingers in, and then I'd lick it off of her fingers. Now, I love my water bowl so much, that I sing a few notes after each drink I take, so she says I'm rejoicing my water! Hope you & all of your friends at the rescue are doing very well!!!

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Hi Zacharina, We got to see the Zebra baby for a second. Mommy took a pic of the Zebra Finche's chick today. It is 6 days old. They are supposed to fledge at two weeks...It is growing so fast. Next to the penny you can see how much it has grown.(look for the pic on bottom of my page). We see little pin feathers. Mommy doesn't know if she could hand feed it like Crash or not. Probably not. hehe She is scared of hurting it. Here is a vote for all my Friends. Patrick

  Hi Zackers!
You are adorable. I am very happy your Mommy rescued you. Clean cages are a must. Clever way to show you are a girl. Have you tried dried papaya? It is the only thing I like better than cashews and sugar snap peas.

  HI!!!
Oh, good, another birdie whose Mommy takes them to work! Mom takes both Bentley & I every day to her work with her. We work as Administrative Assistants at a Maintenance Company, but I think that I have the HARDEST job of all, because I have to be ready to sing extremely pretty whenever our boss uses his printing calculator, or when the printer prints, or when the phone rings and my Mom is trying to talk on it...just like that, at a moments notice. WHEW, it is difficult, let me tell you. But, my Mom tells me what a good job I do all of the time, so I've got to keep it up. Coconuts job is to throw the food out of our dishes onto the floor in front of our cages, and to start screaming when Mommy runs the vacuum to clean it all up. We have the greatest time riding in the car in our travel cages too. I am so glad that your Mom found you, and is so involved in the rescue now! Stop by & say Hello sometime! :) Bentley

  ZACKERS BBFF (Best Birdie Friends Forever)
VOTE 4 U, I'm so glad you have such a special forever Mommy!!!!! She is so great, my Mommy said she is going to check in our area & see if there is a birdie rescue, so she can volunteer, too! My Mommy is a 1st time birdie mom but she's doing good with me & she really loves all animals, so she can help even if it's cleaning cages!! he,he,he, she's good at that! Mommy put my bath & flying videos on web, go to www.youtube.com categories - pets - then search by - Bird IRN, my 2 videos should come up 1st. My latest craze is I'm obsessed with mom's feet. I'm not sure what they are so when we're playing on the bed, I stock them by walking around & around them & then sneak up put my beak on them and whisper to them. Then do it again & again, then climb up on them, taste, bite, taste, walk around on them, bite toes, bite heals, then do it all over again. Mom can't figure it out but just laughs, she said something about it tickles. Got any ideas?? I got to take my 2nd shower today & mom let more warm water sprinkle down on me... Ahhhhh I spreaded my wings & shook my tail. Then mommy towel dried me & I preened all my feathers. I can't wait till tomorrow!! Can a birdie be too clean? I can't wait till Turkey Day, I get to go out to my skin sister's house, she has 3 dogs & 4 cats?? But Mom said don't worry the cats will be kept in the bedroom, not sure why, I like the bedroom. I'm a little nervous cause I've never gone anywhere else but I love potatoes!! he,he,he Oh well, that's all my excitement for today. Hope you have a Great Turkey Day with lots of food, friends & all your family!! XXXXOOOOO
