A lot of you know me from AA. I also used to be active on another forum I wasn't too fond of, but I see some members are here.

wee Just flew in to say hi! Not sure how active I'll be yet since things are really busy here but I hope to see all of your smiling tweeties around!

hope to hear stories about your flock, how is cupcake doing? your green cheek conures are adorable. I'm thinking of fostering/adopting another gcc from a bird rescue hereabouts, if all goes well...

Cupcake is doing wonderfully. He is finally dna'd, but I often slip up and call him a her. On a pelleted and fresh food diet flappinhappy and enjoying a lot of time with his window perch. He stopped plucking for a while but recently has started again. No old owner in sight. Very Happy

Oh yes, greenies are my favorite species. My ekkie has a Facebook page where you can read a condensed version of his story. https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=206541839387290

Monty's story brought me to tears. Eclectus have eyes that see right into your soul, what an amazing fella you have!

so glad you popped over just to say hi to us!

I guess you're keeping Monty? What a doll. And that video of him in your hubby's dinner - fuggetaboutit! Too cute!

Oh yes, Monty has been officially adopted. It's been a bit of a trial sometimes (testing new waters) but we love him. I actually just read on your blog that their expected lifespan is 20 years...is that true? Seems awfully short for such a big guy.

I was surprised by that number, too. Apparently that list was compiled from only sources that could be verified like vet records, breeder records w/ hatch dates as to maximum age reported in captivity. I'll try to find the exact list again and double check what data was included and what wasn't. 20 years does make sense if the list is a little dated. I would think before their nutritional requirements were determined, eclectus would have been fed an all seed diet like all our other birds. I'd think the eclectus would die younger than other parrots on an all seed diet.

Glad you guys kept Monty. He and your hubby seem to really get along.

They do...and I love him dearly. I got bit several times for a while (no feathers means hard to read body language) and he was under a lot of stress. Things have been doing much better now though.

In the Gallery we have an area for "calendar pics". Please feel
free to upload pics of your birds. In October we'll be having a vote on
the pics and the winners will go into a 2012 calendar available for
purchase.
