Success Stories

These are some of our recently adopted birds and what their new families have to say about them. Have a success story of your own or a cute picture you'd like to share? Let us know about it!

Stella is a great permanent part of our family. Stella only gets a little cranky if you let her get a hold of paper to shred or get in a corner when she's out and about from her cage. But she gets over it pretty quickly when you remove her from the situation. Other than that, she's a perfect sweetie. I remember when I first brought her home and I had to use leather grill gloves to go near her! (and she still got through to my skin) She likes to take baths in her water dish whenever I run the vacuum and going in the shower sometimes, too. She likes to climb the towel racks. She talks a lot, imitates my laugh to a tee. She tries to sing like a ballad singer and it sounds terrible! Paige and I just laugh and laugh.

Omar

Things are going great with Omar. We have been able to pet him and have him step up onto our hands or arms. Even with occasional blood drawn we still love him without question. Band-aids fix and time heals. He is indifferent to the kitty and loves his baths. Bath time for both critters is most amusing. We haven't clipped his wings and I don't think that we will as he does seem to enjoy being able to fly. He is also pretty good at it. We do pay special attention to doors to make sure that there is no chance for accidental escape. Every bit of exercise is a good thing as he tends to be a bit lazy! Might be willing to take him into the shower like Lily for baths with me but will take it slowly and hope by spring baths will be a lot less messy. Omar seems to be getting a bit pudgy but we have been trying to keep his activity up and he seems to be losing some of the bulk. He surely loves to sit on his perch and munch out of his treat bowl.  Know that he is very special to us and he is doing great.  Everyday is a joy for us and we never regret giving him his home. Thank you for all you do and for allowing us to have such a wonderful companion to our family. Take care and know that Omar is loved beyond compare

Merry Christmas to you too!  Oscar, aka. Leo is doing wonderful!  He has a new feathered friend that I also rescued, Sassy, which is a young female African Grey. Both are very spoiled and always go with us to our cabin in upper Michigan several times a year.  They travel very well.  Oscar is a big talker and has a 60+ word vocabulary, too many to list.

Anny
Anny is doing great. She is a well-adjusted bird, completely settled in her ways. It has been a little more then 2.5 years since we took her in and you should see the difference. If you remember, at the beginning she had difficulty getting out of her cage and probably justified trust issues. However, now she does not want to be in her cage. She takes the first chance she gets to seat on me, Lana or play with us. If one or both of us dare to ignore her she demands the attention loudly or just simply flies over. Anny is fully flitted, healthy, happy and some times mischievous bird. We got her a friend, citron cockatoo. It is a girl, her name is Lika. We got her a little more than 1.5 year ago. Lika is very young two years old.. They get along with each other very well. As long as Lika respects Anny's territory.
WE JUST ADOPTED A DOUBLE-YELLOW HEADED AMAZON FROM FINE-FEATHERED FRIENDS. SHE WAS A X-MAS PRESENT FOR MY HUSBAND, WHO HAS ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR AMAZONS. WE ARE SO HAPPY WITH HER AND SHE'S PROVING SHE IS A VERY HAPPY BIRD WITH US. SHE TALKS, WHISTLES, WOLF-WHISTLES, AND TODAY STARTED WHISTLEING WITH THE MUSIC ON THE RADIO. SHE'S AN AWESOME BIRD. WE REALLY ARE SO HAPPY THAT WE DECIDED THAT WE HAD ROOM IN OUR HOUSE FOR ANOTHER BIRD, OUR 10TH.
