I love this budgie's deep voice. Check it out!
Are you listening to me? What’s the (window) catch?
Poured myself a glass of orange juice and when I came back after putting the carton away this is what I found. Sometimes Inspector Sammy takes his job a bit too seriously. LOL
Thank you Pat R. for sending these awesome gifts for the birds here. I also can put those dish mats to use right away. It is so kind of you to think of all the birds here.

The answer to yesterday's riddle about who was accompanying me on my return flight home! Meet Petey! Kelsea Young found him on a woman's porch living in a dog crate. She finally convinced the woman to give her Petey so she could try to find him a good home. After searching for several months she wasn't successful and contacted me for help. Since I was traveling to attend a conference in Nashville, I had a layover in Atlanta on the way back which is a three hour drive for her. She and her husband drove with Petey and met me so he could come here. It was quite an expensive undertaking, but we made it happen. We had to purchase him a cage ($385), a boarding pass for the flight ($125), a health check for the flight ($92), toys, perches, etc., and he'll still require a full intake at our avian vet which will include the blood work ($175). If you'd like to donate to help with the expenses, please use the donate button. Thank you for helping support Petey, who now has a sponsor, Helen Bas! A huge thank you to Kelsea for rescuing him from the dog crate to give him a better life!

I'm hiding so I don't have to go to bed. Please don't tell Ginger where I am.
Our group toured EAST today. What a beautiful facility. Kim has done such an outstanding job in a very short time. She has much to be proud of.
Thanks to everyone who donated funds to The Flying Gourmet so that our birds could enjoy the delicious birdie bread and balsa blocks. This is especially important for Kelly because he gets the bread daily as part of his diet. He has a split lower beak and can't crack harder foods.
Dexter is learning how to use the play stand. He's getting more comfortable with every passing day.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Cooper says, "Please remember to do your monthly self-check breast exams."
Please welcome Moe and Molly! They are both in their 30's and are a bonded pair. This is a tragic story and one that I hope will make all of you that have companion parrots really stop and think about the future of your birds. What will happen to them when you can no longer care for them because of illness, death, etc.? This pair is very loved and were well taken care of for many years, but as the owner became more, and more ill over time she was unable to keep up with the care they required. Please do not judge her on the condition of this cage. She has been unable to clean it for a very long time, and being alone and disabled it was impossible.
She finally had to come to the reality that it was best for her birds to move on to another home. A truly heartbreaking story. I want to thank Christa Hubbard for all of her help yesterday when we picked up the birds. It was a true team effort because we were also trying to comfort the owner and make it to the vet appointment for the birds. A tricky situation. Showing her compassion and understanding was what was necessary to help ease her mind and let her know that she was doing the right thing.
I carefully caught each of the birds and wrapped them in a towel so she could touch them and kiss them goodbye. And then it was off to the vet so they could have all the necessary tests done and an exam as well.
Power washing and taking the cage apart took hours! But, now they are back in their clean cage, they have their clean nest box (temporarily because they sleep in it), all new perches (thanks to Michael Sazhin, The Parrot Wizard) and of course a new toy for the night with more to come over the next few days.
They will be evaluated here and are currently in quarantine. Once the evaluation is complete, the decision will be made about their future. The MUST stay together. That is the promise I made the owner, and the promise I make to them!
Keep watching for updates about their condition as I post about their journey.

Wonderful Kenny Tuesday memory!
Kenny Tuesday! Wet Kenny Tuesday that is. LOL
Please help me welcome Dexter to our flock. He is 22 years old and lived with his owner all his life until she passed away last week at the age of 93! The family didn't know what to do with Dexter, so a friend helped them find me. I went to pick him up on Tuesday afternoon. The home did smell of cigarette smoke, as did Dexter and his cage. Nothing a shower won't fix for him, but the cage is a total loss. It is rusted and covered in grime, tar and nicotine. The woman did the best she could for him, but as she grew older she just couldn't keep up with the cleaning, which is understandable at her age and considering her condition. Dexter now has a clean cage and is much happier in there. I picked him up from the home he had lived in for 22 years, and took him directly to the vet to have his exam, fecal and bloodwork done. Then he came to the rescue and settled in for the night. He's a sweetheart! Watch for updates as he transitions from quarantine. He's quite a charmer.
