Sissy the Severe Macaw on Deb’s leg during Bird Lovers Club today.
Deb gave me a spirited and chatty Quaker parrot (Papaya) for someone down here to adopt, and Sissy gets to go with her to eventually fly free in the flights at BOPS.
We had a birdy swap.
Bird Lovers Club is full of caring birdy people. They offered up bird food donations for the birds at BOPS. :)
There was a seminar today with Barbara Heidenreich, a legit bird behavior specialist. She demonstrated what positive re-enforcement, time, and patience can do to benefit your companion bird (and other animals).
I was going to join and pay the 25$ membership, but currently my job situation is up in the air after a meeting on Friday, so I’m holding on to every penny.
A NFLB friend told the head of the group, and when they sent the newsletter/reminder out, it mentioned “You don’t have to be a member to attend” They even hooked me up with a free lunch. I’m usually shy when it comes to people helping me out. @____@ I was very grateful.
Anyhoo. I MISS SISSY!
There’s only one other bird I got attached to like I did Sissy, Chico the amazon who was adopted. I’ll never forget you guys.
I’ll be visiting Sissy soon enough. :D
