Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Sorry Iíve been a bit to sad to come on here..
No Sunny. I cry everyday, itís silly I know. I just need to accept that heís gone. I fear heís died. But I guess Iíll never know.
Iíll always miss him.
My parents arrive tomorrow hopefully that will cheer me up and keep my mind off him. And at least I donít have to worry about him while I go to Queensland for 10 days soon.


Itís going to take me a while to get better.
He was my best friend, and the best thing thatís happened to me.




Thank you everyone for your kind words and support.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Hannah if I was you I’d be crying every day too. But I’d prefer to think that Sunny has done exactly what he was born to do, which is to find himself a girlfriend and have a family of his own. And this is possible for him because of you and your loving care that you gave him.

I still hope he will pop back and visit you sometime, he’s probably a little pre-occupied but he’ll never forget you and will always love you, just as he will be forever in your heart. You’ll hear Sunny in every corella’s call and see him in every rainbow. Sending warm feathered hugs your way!

Thank you so much. There is a big part of me that thinks he has fallen head over heals in love with a female Corella and doesnít want to leave her side. And Iím more than happy for him to be wild and never see me again, itís just the suddenness and unknown that is making me think the worst has happened. And of course thatís my anxiety speaking also. But if I really think about it, the past few weeks he stopped sleeping in the barn and heíd spend most days off in the wild, so maybe itís not as sudden as it seems.

All the Corellas sound like Sunny now, they play tricks on me everyday

Oh no, how long haven't you seen him? Maybe there are some chances?

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Hannah, it sounds like he's been ready and preparing for life with his flock friends for a while. It's hard to see it until it actually happens, then it's a surprise. You have every right to be sad and miss him. We're all right there with you on that. Just keep in mind that you did the very best for him, and made him truly happy. YOU DID THAT, and that's amazing!

I definitely understand the feeling of him being your best friend. For me, that was Patches, in all his beautiful plucked imperfection, my best friend. The one who could look into your eyes and see you right down to your soul. He died in my arms on the way to the emergency avian vet, a three hour drive from home. It still makes me cry. I learned so much from him. I guess that's what helped me make room in my heart for Tucker and Baxter, my two wonderful, deserving fids.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Hannah, there's absolutely no reason to assume anything bad has happened to Sunny.

My bet is that the pull of the wild flocks has become more powerful and he's anxious to explore his world in the way all young animals do. Really, if he's going to be a wild corella, he needs to be spending all his energies foraging and flying and finding waterholes (especially with the drought the way it is). If you have a stock-watering system or a water source Sunny knows about, he'll come back to drink if not to eat.

Do you have any idea how old Sunny might be? I've always assumed he was a new-season chick when you found him because he was so ready to bond with you. That would mean he's not really old enough to breed this year, but if he were older when you met, then he could be busy with the new Mrs Sunny and helping her design their first home. That would take up all his energy and interest and would be a good reason for him not showing up at yours.

I can't imagine how painful it must be, but I know intellectually that you must be miserable at not seeing his little face every day. The one thing you can take GREAT joy in his that you rescued him from an awful fate and literally gave him his life back. Very few people get that opportunity or, if they did, they would give in to their human emotions and keep the bird enclosed for the remainder of its life. So you gave Sunny his life again every time you allowed him to fly away with the wild corellas.

I hope your Mum and Dad bring you loads of comfort and laughter. You certainly deserve it. Do make sure you wish them a cheery 'G'day' from all of us here. We like their daughter very much! XX

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Hannah, we are collectively embracing you with feathered hugs, knowing you did a magnificent job saving Sunny and giving him support as he transitioned to adulthood. Most of us could not do what you did - honor his wild heritage and allowing him the supreme choice of lifestyle. Your deepest fear is understandable though he may yet make an appearance. Sunny's gradual independence the past few weeks offers the best case for flock inertia and the opening of his next life chapter.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Everyone has already said it so much better than I could. You are amazing. Your selflessness is practically unheard of. I admire you deeply. And my heart is breaking with you. Please stay here in the forums and give us updates about the wild flocks and the horses and your parents and of course when Sunny brings the family to visit. Youíre an important part of our little family.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Sunny????

I find myself checking this thread several times a day now looking/hoping/praying for an update from our lovely Hannah. Her parents should be there visiting by now and keeping her busy,and I'm positive if that little boii showed up,we would know. This hurts more than I want to admit.

SighhhhÖ
