  Hi Hulk, thanks for the visit and the vote, SKY
Hello every birdie, SKY here with a special weekly report " SPOTLIGHT on CARING"
These weekly blogs will highlight the many BC persons who are making a difference for us birdies.
I trust you shall enjoy these one on one interviews. If you know a BCer who is helping out, let me know please, so we can feature them in weeks to come. These blogs shall continue AFTER the BOTM run from my Broken Wings page.
Today's feature Bird is our own Miss Sugar-145943 & her Mom Eileen.
SKY-" What Rescue are you involved with?"
Sugar- " The IOWA PARROT RESCUE run by Mike & Abi Hutchison"
SKY-" how long have you been involved with them?"
Sugar-" I've been donating for nearly 2 years"
Sky-" how did you learn about them and what impressed you the most?"
Sugar-" I hear of them through Jenny-Lynn's Dad Chuck, and her aunt Denise. What I was impressed with is how well Mike runs the rescue. It's all about the birds. He runs a tight ship, I am amazed what he can do on a limited budget. They are also the only inspected and licensed rescue in Iowa."
SKY-" what is the one most important thing you would say about the IPR?'
Sugar-" Mike makes sure that the bird and the new parronts are compatible. Mike is very upfront about the birds temperment. Some birds can't be handled and he makes sure anyone who adopts them understand that."
SKY-" Anything you'd like to tell us about abused birds in general?"
Sugar-" After Mom Eileeen and I joined BC, I read about a bird named Braveheart who whose evil owners burned his feet off. It's been 3 years since I read that, and to this day it brings tears to my eyes to think about the pain & suffering this bird went through.I found out that he had passed away in 2008. He knew love there and I know his story has touched many lives. I try to forgive because that is what God expects of us, but when I read stories like Braveheart's and yours, it makes it very hard to be forgiving."
Sky-" Thank you Sugar & Mom Eileen for sharing with us. Tomorrow we will visit the Iowa Parrot rescue with a personal phone interview I had with Mike."
with my heart filled with love Sky
Congratulations Ella Rose on your BOTD

  Hi Hulk
Where are you? Your picture has disappeared. I will look for you pal. SKY November 2nd
Hello, this is SKY here to ask you " ARE YOU READY TO EXPLORE?"
I felt it only fitting to begin our journey into EVERYTHING BIRDS, by telling you a little bit about myself.
I was born west of Toronto, Ontario in an aviary run by a devoted and respectable breeder. At 5 months I was sold to a Pet Store in London, Ontario. It is from there that my story begins;
At 6 months old, I was sold to a man from London, Ontario who said "he had always wanted to own a Macaw." In the late fall of 2004, I was surrender to a Bird Rescue in the same area in which I was born.
The rest of my life history is based on facts discovered over the past 8 years. Sometime during the first few months with my first owner I reached my teens with all the attitude that is typical for us Macaws. I bit my owner, and I bit hard opening a wide gash in his arm. In his rage and anger he threw me against a wall. I fell to the floor screaming in pain. The trust was destroyed. I had broken my wing and both my legs. I never saw a VET.
Over the next months, the abuse escalated. Unable to stand, or climb I lived in unbelievable pain. After countless months, my first owner advertised me on-line and I was sold broken bones and all to a woman in Hamilton, Ontario. My stay was short, when, out of fear and in pain I bit through her forearm causing severe damage. It was my act of fear, that saved my life. This, my second owner unknown to her, saved my life.
Tomorrow, I shall share the rest of my life story, and tell you a little about the home I now share with many rescued birds, all with stories of their own.
with my heart filled with love
Congratulations THE CALENDAR PAGE on your BOTD- Nov 1st

Are you there?? Where are you, I can't see you! HULK are you OK?
“Polly, why are you dragging that perch around?”
Polly drops it, panting, “This is a didgeridoo.”
“I recognize a PERCH!”
Polly blows into the didgeridoo.
“What will you play?”
“Today's selection is 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down' in honor of the Honeymoon”

Please remember to check out pics in my gallery. I used a couple from Mr. Kiddo's honeymoon album.
Mr. Kiddo, will tell the story of the honeymoon?

First of all there were four Sennies on the honeymoon. Myself, SP and the couple who shared our first date, Peanut and Codie. Peanut is not so active anymore, and Codie has since flown to the Rainbow Bridge, so the Fab Four as we called ourselves are a bit of BC history for sure.
First we left right from the Castle in a chartered jet piloted by John Travolta! Then we landed in Sydney, Australia where our good buddy Jivu met us and took us on a tour of the city including a tour of the Rainforest Park and a lovely dinner at the Opera House. From there we set out for Ayers Rock and did some climbing about.

Then we set out across the Outback in a rented Hummer chauffeured by Leah from the K Kritter Korral flock as her wedding present. The five of us drove across the Outback (which is an amazing trip in itself) to Brisbane where Leah dropped us off, and we met up with Jack from down under (the best man from the wedding, remember?) and spent a day at the Brisbane Water Park. Next we set out with Jack for the Steve Irwin Australian zoo, which is so large we had to spend two days touring it.

After regretfully leaving the zoo, the five friends boarded the luxurious cruise ship, Orion, and headed for New Zealand. The amenities on board were a dream come true, and after the ship had circled New Zealand we landed on NZ's shore for the final leg of the honeymoon.

After a tour of New Zealand we were welcomed by the wonderful Maori people for a traditional celebration. SweetPepper and I renewed our vows in a traditional Maori Wedding Ceremony. It was a day of fun, sun and feasting, and the four of us were thoroughly tired out when we boarded our flight home at Auckland Airport with Jack seeing us off at the gate.

All in all it was the trip of a lifetime, and the memories and friendships with the folks down under will never be forgotten.

Thank you Mr. Kiddo. What a wonderful time.

Please vote for ME, ZIPPY.
