Weeeeelll, that's a fateful story and similar to his girl Flycka's story. We had gone to a store to get a Sun conure originally and actually paid for one but it was too young to bring home yet, but we wanted to be ready for her by going out to buy her a cage. So we went to this cool bird store where we live, and went in to buy a cage. While perusing the lovely exotic birds there, my hubby stumbled upon Sonny and was simply looking at him when the girl who works there asked him if he wanted to hold him. Of course my hubby jumped the offer and as soon as he did, he was hooked. I on the other hand, have never held anything bigger than Flycka and was kind of nervous about it, but as soon Sonny latched on to my finger and looked at me with his big orange eyes, I too was hooked! Unfortunately for the Sun, we had to call and cancel the sale since we found Sonny instead. Sonny has made an awesome addition to our very full house of kids, dogs and birds!.

Hi! My name is Sonny

I am an Amazon from Bothell, WA.

Sonny Corinthos Jr, Sonny bird

6 years old   M

Amazon

Sonny love love LOVES seed balls, bananas, edamame and pea pods. His Mom is a health nut so she doesn't give him crazy people treats or anything. Good thing he can't talk to other birds or Mom would be in trouble!

Sonny loves to hang out on his play perch in the kitchen with his pals Maddie and Carson. He also likes to take showers with his Mom. She uses an orange smelling shower gel that he just loves!

Sonny screams when he doesn't fed fast enough. He get very offended if his girl Flycka gets fed first.

Mom loves to cuddle me first thing in the morning and she always finds my "spot" right under my beak right away (which is something Dad needs to work on) and she talks so soft and just loves me!

Sonny is only 10 months old, and hasn't had a chance to develop habits, but I'm sure he's working on something!.

Love your birdie friends, poop on the dog..

Hope your are all doing well....btw...did you like the Pine Nuts mom sent you? Molly and I really like them, but they are too hard for Cookie. Miss You!~~love, your humble Queen Tahoe.....be quiet...I am TOO the Queen...you have to listen to me and do what I say....for 2 more hours anyway! Hugs! xo

You MADE IT!!! Aw-w-w...thanks...it's so nice to have "family" support! This has blown my mind. When I got nominated, I thought, "oh man, I can't do this, then I thought of helping the rescued birds....and it all has a cause! Watch out, they hit us like an avalanche...Molly's day is June 25 and Cookie's day is July 14!!! We'll see if they get so lucky to get pledges. I've even had another Grey say he liked the idea so much that he'll match my pledge to the rescue! Wooohooo! I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks, again! Love you guys! v4u!~~~Tahoe

  I once was lost, but now I'm found!
Hi friends! I flew away last Monday! I got spooked by the wind when Dad took me to the door to watch Mads get something out of the car. It was sooo windy that day and the wind swooped me away and I got lost! For 3 days I was lost and scared and hungry and I didn't know how to get back to my family! Yesterday, (6/13) I flew into a garage hoping that someone would see me and they did! They found my missing birdie ad when they this googly thingy on the computer, and they called my Mom and she came and got me. I was soooo happy to see my family again. My Mom took me to see the man at the birdie store this morning and he clipped my wings, but that's okay, because I don't ever want to fly again! It's too scary for me! I'll just sit on my Mom's chest and cuddle with her and be happy that way.

Come visit me, Sonny & Flycka.

  Hi Sonny!
Ooooooh...you got to go outside....fun??? I haven't been outside yet. When it was warm enough, it was way too windy! I like sitting here in the sunroom with the windows open. I can chitter to the outside birds! Just felt like hitting the vote button for you today! I hear Mom and Dad talking about their trip to the Bird Store where they met an 8 year old African Grey named Tahoe. She's real scared being at that store with all the bird noise and people. Seems like Mom is really interested,but not so much for Dad...He's not so sure. Have a great week! Pecks to you!~~cookie

  Hello-o-o-oo- Sonny!
....so what's happening for ya? How's lil ole Mango doing. He fitting in OK? We have white stuff all over the back yard again...what's up with that stuff???? Not sure about this "sitter-chick" coming the next few days. She says she'll work more with me....I may have to tear up another pinata! Mom says if I tear into her the way I tore into Grams tonight, she can see why I don't get out of the cage all that much when they're gone. You should have seen Grams whoopin and hollerin when I gave her my best "beaky-kisses"...the more she whooped, the more I hung on...it was a RIOT!

  Hi Sonny!!i
I’m a ‘new fid on the block’ too! I can get what it’s like to have to try to break the ice, and start making new friends here on the BirdChannel. I may live in the South, but I’m FROM the North, so I know ‘breaking ice!’ So I said to myself, I said “Self, wouldn’t it be easiest to start off talking to fids who are just as nervous as you are? And what’s more reasonable to talk about than being new?!” My good pal Buddy and I are in a contest too..maybe you would like to play!! ~~ Come on over and visit when you can. I’m sure we can find something we have in common! Here’s a ‘Welcome to the BirdChannel’ vote for you. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Õ>

Oh-h-h yeah-h-h...Mango is looking FINE! Who cares what or who...just pick one for Mango and go with it!! I told the story to Mango about Nana and Boppa's "Bird Show" visit today....they came back talkin about a "hog"...what's up with that? They are an interesting pair. They stopped by some Pet Stores and saw a really sweet couple of cockatoos but then said something by being shocked by a sticker??? I don't always understand these featherless-beings, but they keep the food coming and the entertainment lively! Lately, Nana found an ad for an Amazon and a fancy cage AND a playgym....hmmm, if they toss in a trip to the islands, they may have a deal. I'll get back to you on that. Gotta go...big beaky kiss to you and yours! Yeah, I voted for you too...! ~Cookie

  Hi, Sonny!
Please listen to Pogo's story in hopes that you will learn some lifesaving info. One day, Pogo was sitting on top of his cage. He was sitting up there on the door, and we thought it was so cute he could sit up there for a while. Well, around 5 minutes later, we saw that he had chewed off a piece of metal that holds the top together. We were worried, but we would have never DREAMED it was LEAD of all things! We started giving him bird charcoal, Ornabac, peanut butter, peanuts, and lots of calcium to try to get the lead to pass, because we heard that lead poisoning can be treated at home if the bird didn't eat much. A few days later I came home from a game and Pogo was falling off his perch. He was quickly going downhill. We rushed him to the only avian vet in the area (it was lucky that she was even in her office at 11:00 pm) and he was started on shots. We gave him 3 a day for 8 days and he also had to eat some other medicine. He had to be hand fed because he just didn't have the strength to eat pellets. He has almost fully recovered, but now his feet are curled up and he can't perch very well (he just balances). Sometimes he has occasional seizures, and we keep shots on hand just in case. PLEASE don't underestimate the power of lead or zinc, and if any bird gets poisoned, take them to the vet immediately! Curing them at home DOES NOT WORK! Please listen to this. Pogo also left you a vote. Thanks and birdy kisses from POGO!

Come visit me, Cutie, Yoshi, Tiny & Pogo.

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird)!
Hiya Sonny, I'm an amazon too (double yellow head) and want to welcome you to BC. My new person is trying to get me to eat healthy, too, but it's harder to teach an old bird new tricks! However, that poop on the dog is a good idea, I may try that with the cats. Trouble is, they can move pretty fast!! Cya...
