    My Sunshine Senegal died suddenly October 22nd. I had gone away over night, left everyone with extra food, water and toys. I had done it before without problems. When I got back, I couldn't find Sunny. Usually she flies to me, scolding and upset.

    I tore the birdroom apart. Two hours of searching. I was frantic. I was gathering the trash I had dragged out of the corners and under the cages, and there she was, hidden in the corner of the trash can, hidden under a discarded bag. She didn't react to my voice, my touch, nothing. Sunny was breathing, blinking her eyes, could move her head, wings and legs. But she didn't react to me. She had bite marks on her right wing and under her right eye. I rushed her to the vet.

    Dr Stern said she had been beaten up and had a probable head injury. Her crop was completely empty. Linda did everything she could for Sunny but she had a seizure and died six hours after I took her in. Linda said probably Oscar RBP wanted her to mate with him and when she refused, beat her. She hid from him in the trashcan.

    Eighteen years and she is gone. So many things I could have done to prevent her death... Sunny is gone.

    Sending hugs to you in your time of loss. It's the hardest part of having companion birds in your life.

    Oh no, I’m so very sorry! I know you feel sick about this, but please don’t beat yourself up. We just can’t foresee all the possibilities that can harm our birds. My heart aches for you.

    I'm sorry she left you and you can't plan for everything that could possibly happen. You did everything you could once you discovered her and she knew she was loved and loved you back. :sadhug:

    I'm so sorry Lois! :sorrow: I wish I was their and could give you a big hug.
    Please remember what a great life you was giving her. All that freedom, and to be allowed to live in a natural flock and never be alone.
    You gave her 18 good years, never forget that! :) :bighug:
