  Hello Gumbo, Sydney & Tiki
It's wonderful to meet you. What a neat flock you have. Your colors are beautiful. Are you a double yellow-headed? Do you like to chew wood like I do? My favorite is Mom's floor. Yum - But I'll chew up my wooden toys & other things, too. Paper is fun, too. I like to wad that up into a ball. It's getting really late & Mom says she has to shut down this thing I'm pecking at now. We all get up very early & Mom has to go to work. We'll stop by real soon to see you all. Please come by to see us again, too. Here's a v4u & wing hugs from all of us to all of you.

Come visit me, Fred & Sunshine Birdie.

  Hello Gumbo,
Mom said to look up other Amazons so here I am. I'm an orange cheeked. I see you're 42 years old. Wow- My mom took me to my new Doc a year or so after I adopted her & Pop because my beak was breaking & they got scared. She said that the band on my leg tells where I came in to this country but not how old I was or when. My 1st mom's daughter said I was a baby when her mom got me, & that was 18 years ago now. She was my mom for 15 years. But Doc said that I'm older than that 'cause the stations where our kind came in to this country were closed down 20 years then. So I had to be at least 20 maybe 2 years ago, but she said I could have been that old, or older when I was birdnapped. So I guess I'm kind-of an old man now.
I really like the colors on your head. Hope we can become friends. I love company & mail. Here's a v4u & a wing hug, too. Stop by any time. You'l always be welcome.

Come visit me, Fred & Sunshine Birdie.

Welcome to the BC! You'll LOVE IT HERE! You've got to meet Max(ie)! She's one of the BEST amazons---'bout your age too! So tell us what's going on in your neck of the woods! Our mom was visiting kids out there a while back and missed her turn and almost ended up in your pretty town. She'll never forget that. Had to call her son to get her back on track! Too funny!
