Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Hannah, I agree with Scott, never too much Sunny!

Valyndris, thank you for sharing your touching story of Shadow!

Like I said, this month is going to be an emotional one for sure.

Meanwhile, I've got my work cut out for me, with a mountain of photos dating back to 1984 to wade through! Good one, Terry, it actually really sounds like fun. I may even need a few of those danged old Puffs myself.
Please see if you can buy in bulk, I need some too
I can't wait to see which memory of the Rb you choose, and I hope Gail enters her own favourite as well!

First time Sunny sat on my shoulder (2 days after I found him)


Fist time outside in the aviary for some fresh air and a wing stretch..


First time using his feet to grip an item! (Proud Mum moment)


First time meeting a peachick (Sunny hated him lol!)


First time successfully flying! (Funny memories of him finding his wings and being AWFUL at flying, his wings would just go everywhere and hed fly like he was possessed by a crazy chicken)


First time digging for roots, showing me he knows how to survive in the big wide wild world.


First time reading..


First time he actually stood on the scales like a good boy..


First time and awesome memory of Sunny posing with a rainbow


And a memory in a somewhat different way, The last photo I took of him
Please don't apologize, Sunny's photos are all so amazing, definitely not an overload.

The last picture choked me up. I hope that soon that will no longer be the last photo taken of him.

Shadow the cockatiel

He was part of a clutch of 3 eggs. Unfortunately the parents abandoned the eggs 1 week prior to hatching. We did not have an incubator at the time but we did have a friend with a pair of love birds. We gave the eggs to the pair of love birds and they took care of them as if they were their own. The first egg hatched but the love birds killed it when they realized it wasn't one of theirs. We tried to keep a close eye for the second egg but didn't notice it in time and that bird was also killed for the same reason. Now we were on full time awareness with little to no sleep. The third egg hatched and we saved the little baby in time.


We named him Shadow and he was born August 11th 2003. He was hand raised from day one and was the size of a thumb when he hatched. Feeding him was a challenge but we used a tiny syringe to get some formula in him feeding him every hour for 24 hours to gradually needing feedings less often as he grew, this resulted in little to no sleep but this little guy was worth it. Here he is at 10 days old. He was kept in a small heated tank.


Shadow became such a wonderful pet, you could do anything with him, from holding him on his back to petting him anywhere and he was cool with it. Here he is at 1 month old.


Here is Shadow at 5 months old, still on formula but learning to perch and eat on his own, his face was full of formula as he was a messy eater.


Here he is at 6 weeks old, now perching like a pro.


Here are his parents, Spike the father on the left and Buddy Girl the mother on the right. Buddy was usually a good mother but it was due to Spike the dead beat dad that attacked her that made her abandon the eggs.


Shadow now at 4 months old. His name really did suit him as he would follow me around the house like he was my shadow, while singing the whole time. He was always so happy and cheery. He loved singing to my big toe as it was the same size as his head. This bird just loved me so much and if I was around, he was always at my feet singing happily. He could always cheer me up no matter how bad my day was.


Here is Shadow at 1 year old hanging out with his parents, even though they abandoned him as an egg, they became friends. Shadow on the left, Spike the father in the middle and Buddy Girl the mother on the right.


Shadow at 1 and a half years old chewing the (fake) flower centerpiece on the kitchen table. He was always finding things to chew and have fun with.


Here he is at 3 years old. I grew up with him in my childhood and I loved him so very much. He loved me just as much and was always by my side no matter what, always singing and always just so happy to see me. I was his favorite person and he made it obvious. He was so cuddly and loved getting head scratches.
Shadow was so beautiful, and his personality really shows through in the pictures. I loved seeing the progression in the photos, and it is obvious his life was filled with love. Thank you for sharing him, and I look forward to seeing which picture of Jacob you choose.

This picture of Jordan and Opal really shows the bond they shared. This is so sweet, and my heart goes out to you and Opal for the loss of Jordan.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Just for fun photos:

Here (in Poland) was All Saint's Day yesterday, so I will begin with my first fids which aren't longer with us. They were Limonka and Szafirek. I got them on my 10th Birthday - August 4th 2010
They had one babie named Green. I'm sure my dad took few photos of him but we were searching and searching but unfortunetely we couldn't find them Probably they were deleted Also, we couldn't really find any pics of his parents except so bad quality photos from my first phone. Here are few of them:
Limonka (left) and Szafirek (right) together:


Limonka "riding" an eagle

Szafirek:

During the searching we found only one better (but still not the best) quality photo of them:

Unfortunetely Szafirek became ill and died on December 23th 2013. About half year later we made a mistake buying a mirror for Limonka. A budgie in the mirror became her new "partner" and this was her whole word - only she and her mirror She also laid two eggs (the 1st one was in the Szafirek's death anniversary). On January 2015 she also passed away. Then I was in a hospital and was coming back the next day after her death

In the next post will be photos related to current fids
