March 2020 POTM Contest

March's POTM Theme is

"What's in a Name?"




This month is a little different! For this contest, we want to hear the story of how your bird got their name or nickname.
We know there are many rescued and rehomed birds who came to us with their name, so nicknames you have given them make a great story as well.

Any picture of your bird is fine (as long as it follows the rules for safety, etc).




The contest will run through March 29th, and a poll for voting will go up then. The winner will be announced on April 1.

The winner will receive a Supporting Membership for a year,
and their photo & story will be on the forum home page for the month of April.
One official entry per person, but you can add as many Just for Fun entries as you want!
Please make sure to specify which one is your official entry.



Examples:


This is Talli, and he was my husband's first bird.
His whole name is Metallica (Reg is a huge fan!) but we only call him that if he is doing something he shouldn't!
Otherwise, he is just Talli.





This is Jax. He came to us with his name, but we always call him Green Green.
His best buddy Phoe actually gave him his nickname as that's what it sounded like when he called for him, and it stuck.

LOL! This made me laugh because the look on her face totally fits with her wondering if she looks like him!
I love Kise's name, and think it fits her perfectly.

Re: March 2020 POTM Contest

Parker’s name when he came to me was Porker. While he was well loved in his prior home, he definitely got rescued from that name. We named him Parker as a name similar to his own, since he was often saying his old name.

And of course the photo is reversed In this photo heís actually upside down on my hand giving me a kiss.
Parker is such a perfect name for your handsome boy, I can't even imagine him as Porker. I love how you only changed his name a little as well, but that it made such a huge difference! Does he now say Parker?

I adore this picture of you two, so nice to see you in the picture with him!

Re: March 2020 POTM Contest

The story is a bit long
Me with my familly visited a zoo where I saw hanging parrots for the first time. They were the most adorable to my mum. There also was a poster with bats - two of them were upside down and one in (un)normal position. One of these hanging was saying "Zenek passed out!". After this trip my mum started calling all hanging parrots "Zeneks". She also wanted them to home but they are rarely met in aviculture.
A year later we got a conure. The first day he was walking in his Cage upside down and mum said "Zenek, Zenek!" ...and later we gave him this name

I love this story of how Zenek got his name, and I bet your Mom loved that you named him that! Zenek is such an awesome name, and I am so happy to hear the history behind it

Re: March 2020 POTM Contest

And we are off to an amazing start, Terry! Fabulous theme and already 3 beautiful stories with awesome images to match! I see another home run here my friend!

I knew Parker's name story, but had no idea about Kise and Zenek. Not only an inspirational theme, but educational as well!!
I tip my hat to you my friend!!

I love Kise's name, and think it fits her perfectly.
I couldn't agree more, Terry. The look she is giving in this picture is something else .... Love it!!




This could've been a great pic for last month's theme, Chris! A lovely image for sure!




Zenek is such a cutie-pie.
This is a very cool story. We do a lot of giving different names to things in my house. Your story brought a big smile to me face.
