November 2019 POTM Contest

November's POTM Theme is

"Remember When"





"Time flies, but memories last forever."

This month is about remembering special moments with our birds. This can include:
-Your bird as a baby
-When they first joined your family
-First step up
-Enjoying a new food
-Loving a new toy
-Beloved ones who are no longer with us
-Any memory that is special to you.

A few examples:

Darwin learning to step up



The friendship between Phoe & Jax



Talli enjoying his first birdie muffin



Our sweet wild-caught Cally, remembered with much love




The contest will run through November 28th, and a poll for voting will go up then. The winner will be announced on December 1.
Videos are welcome!
*Basic editing such as cropping, brightening or sharpening your photo is allowed*
The winner will receive a Supporting Membership for a year, and their photo will be on the forum home page for the month of December.
One official entry per person, but you can add as many Just for Fun entries as you want! Please just specify which one is your official entry.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Made me sad to dig around for this.

Berta, my wild caught Orange Winged Amazon. She was with me from 1976 through 2015

Bill, Berta was gorgeous. What a long time you two had together, filled with love.
I'm so sorry that it made you sad, thank you for sharing her with us.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

This is our Canary winged parrot (Brotogeris) Max, who was ship's mascot for 6 years. He was the sweetest, most people friendly parrot I have ever had the pleasure to know. Max picked me out of whole tank full of his brethren, jumped on my hand and wolf whistled in my face. Who could resist? Max not a day goes by that your family does not miss you, still.

I love this picture, what a beautiful boy Max was. For beings so small they sure leave a huge footprint in our hearts.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Official entry
This was the first time Eddie was outside, well in our home. (He did go out with past owner) He loved flying outside, getting tired very quickly yet having so much fun. (A picture of him flying was posted in the last contest)
