I had to put in bird species that he is a Toucan but he is a European Starling. They didnt have that selection in there. I had just been diagnosed with MS and lost my job all in the same day. I came home in a down mood and went out to water my garden. As I was watering I heard this little peeping noise. I looked down and there was this tiny little pink thing that looked like a alien of some kind.I picked it up and brought it in.I tried to get him back to his nest but it was to far in the sofet of my roof. I had never seen anything like it. I called all over and ended up finding a rehabber that told me what to do so I did it. Well, it was love after that. I fed him every 20 mins from 6am to 6pm. Carried him in my pocket wherever I went. Took him to a rehabber she said I was doing a great job to keep it up and then told me how to let him go back to the wild when he was old enough. Well, he didnt want to go and I didnt want him to. So I ended up with this wonderful pet Starling Lucky. Of course I had to find out the legalities of having a wild bird and found it is ok because he is not native to here. So found him a Avian Vet and the rest is history. He sings, dances and talks. Says about 20 words. He is the reason I became interested in birds. I had always loved animals but never realized how wonderful birds were. He also made me focus on something other than my illness he needed me so I couldnt just curl up and feel bad for myself. He makes me laugh..

  Hello
what a poignant story. Starlings are so common, I know they are an invasive species, but did not realize they still are considered not native. I also had no idea that they could mimic human speech. Thank you for your rescue--that young a bird must have been a good amount of time and effort.

Thank you for stopping by! WOW what an amazing story! we have never seen someone with a pet starling before, although we see them from time to time in our yard. Once our mom found and took care of a baby bird, but released it when it was older. it was a crow and when tame they are very sweet birds! Here is a vote for you!!! have a wonderful week!

  Hi everyone of my birdie friends. Mommy took this pic of me last night. I was doing great and singing and talking and let her snap this shot of me. But during the night I had a very bad night fright and really got hurt. Mommy says she thinks I might have to go to the Rainbow Bridge and she is so upset. She blames herself for not getting to my room fast enough. I told her its not her fault. Im old and blind and maybe it is my time. I dont want to go but not sure if I can fight this one. If not I will see all the feathered friends that are there already. If I can fight this I will stay and visit here awhile longer. Please say a prayer for mommy as she is heartbroken. Don't I look handsome in my pic? Love and birdie hugs always Lucky.

Come visit me, Keeko/In Loving Memory, Noah & Lucky.

  Hi from Fortune ,St. Patrick D'bird and Lonnie
Hi Lucky, Maybe your Mom should look at adopting from a shelter. My Mom is trying to do that now. There are so many abandoned birds that it will break your heart. Mostly they are near large cities. We live in a rural area with small towns. So it is harder to get a placement. Most shelters want people to live nearby in case the match is not a good one between adoptee and bird. Go to Petco.com they have links to adoption centers.. Good Luck V4U Fortune
