Re: January 2019 POTM Poll

Oh man, these are all just heart warming, tear jerking and down right beautiful entries.
So hard to pick just the one from these special FIDs.

I think this month every single one is a winner.

It was a great joy to participate in this celebration of human-avian love. Thank you, Terry, and everybody, and PHOE!

Re: January 2019 POTM Poll

I can’t choose, they’re all just too precious! A worthy tribute indeed to sweet Phoe but as far as actually making a choice is concerned, I think I need to go have a little lie down ...

Re: January 2019 POTM Poll

Terry, I know how heartfelt this particular POTM contest has been for you, and it shows in how fitting a tribute it is for Phoe. Thank you for taking your grief and pain and channeling it into something so beautiful.

And thank you to each and every member who has participated this month. Most months I comment on each entry, but couldn't this time around due to the hectic pace this month has had for me. But please don't think it a reflection on the entries themselves. Quite the opposite, in fact, as I have never been so moved by a POTM as I was this time around.

Lincoln, Romek, Patches, Parker, Penny, Jester, Kise, Cheddar, Jack, Gorgeous George, Skittles, Indi, Poco, Finley, Sunny, Twitch, Squish, Noodles, Clark, Zod, Paris, Sunny, Abby, Bixby, Zeke, Peanut, Rickeybird and dear Phoe... each of you is beautiful, indeed perfect, in your imperfection. And you are loved beyond all measure.

Re: January 2019 POTM Poll

I just voted. I'm not the most sentimental guy when it comes to birds, and especially not the Rb, but Anansi, I'd like to join you in your thoughts. If I were a better writer, I would have said all that. It really was a beautiful month. Little Phoe was an inspiration. He didn't think anything was wrong with him, and he was right. Terry this was a homerun and a touchdown and a 3-pointer. Well done everybody.

This is beautifully written, and the bolded part took my breath away with how true it was. Thank you so much for that.

Terry, thank you for baring your soul and creating a phenomenal contest in memory of Phoe. Stephen (Anansi) beautifully captured the spirit of community beyond words.

Argh, I just voted. Not to diminish the final tally, but they are all winners!
