Well, I loved the little guy. He was so tiny! It was late in the day ... we were late getting there because had to drive about 500 miles to pick up and deliver another rescue bird, so he was tired and maybe shy. But sat on my arm and let me scratch his little head. What a sweetie! Sadly, it was not love at first sight for Popeye and Jeff. He wouldn't step up for Jeff or get a head-scratch. So, he will go on to another good home, at least two people have asked for him.

So J will still keep looking for an Amazon. Maybe not have to be a blue-front, but will need to have that active amazon attitude. I wish he'd go for a birdie like Salty, so active and also so sweet and friendly, and not some hothead bite monster. But that's just me. Actually if it were just me I wouldn't have any parrot. I travel too much. I can help them from a distance, and help support the people who help them directly, and I love having one around - but I'm not a good parront myself. Kudos to you who have it together.

What would J think about a Yellow Nape Amazon? I have been approached by two separate individuals (so its not the same Amazon ). Ask, and if he is interested, I will get more information. At present, I am working with one of them to find a way for the Amazon to keep its home. So, one never knows! The other is more interested in rehoming, I need more information regarding that situation.

Just checking in now, sorry the RLA was not a good match. So kind and conscientious of you to heavily rely on allowing the "bird to choose." There will be others, and one that is a perfect fit!

I think you were very mature, sensible, whatever the right adjective is, in making sure you have a harmonious flock, I know what a draw it is to find a cute little bird, but being pragmatic enough to make the right decision. Kudos..

Yeah, Iím not a reliable chooser. The little DYH we transported to the rescue? Want. The red-lored overlord? Want. The big green wing I couldnít touch? Want. The little female eclectus chewing the drywall? Maybe no one would notice if I put her in my coat pocket.

Re: Meeting potential red-lored overlord this week...advice?

I've had both a super bonded BFA and a super bonded Red Lored.

Red Loreds are the shyer of the two, but shy within the context of Amazon shy... (i.e. Not really all that shy.) They are sweet sensitive souls...

Mine is somewhere around 18 years old now, and I've had her since she was 2.

You sound like me. I'm a sucker for every hard luck story out there. I am actually choosy about who I bring into my home, but if money and space were limitless, there'd be a whole lot more (and a staff to help care for them.)

Monday night, when we were discussing what to do with Charlotte's stuff, MrC noted that we really should just clean and store it all, because he said that there will be another large disabled bird show up, and I won't be able to say no, and we'll need the stuff. He's probably right.
