Oh no, I’m so very sorry Danita. Floyd was so lucky to have you and he knew how much he was loved.

@Danita - you are an angel on earth. You have taken in so many birds that have all the odds against - the detritus of the bird world - them and gone through the process to death with kindness, courage, responsibility and all the time providing them with the best medical care and LOVE. I salute you as the bird angel.

Floyd has gone, but I'll bet he left happy. Happy to have been one of Danita's gang and so very loved.

Danita will miss him terribly, but with the satisfaction that she did everything possible to make his life as good as it could be.

From all of us to you sweet Floyd and the angel that took you in.


This morning I had a strange request,
I did not understand.
An invitation to fly free
Throughout the Heavenly land.
But I had found my Heaven!
I had Heaven here on earth.
I had a home that gave me warmth,
That gave me love, and true self worth.
But we all know that one day comes
A time when all move on.
A time when we must move ahead
And trust what lies beyond.
So I decided not to fear,
I would trust that guiding light.
I went with the faith you gave me
Over to the other side.
I flew free with you within my heart
Towards the other shore.
The love you gave will stay with me,
You will be with me, forever more.
I have with you eternal bond,
Through faith, through love so sweet.
Have faith in me, as I did you,
Believe! Believe! Again we’ll meet.
So do not cry beloved friend,
I am joyful, I am free.
The bond we hold between us
Is one we hold, Eternally.
Beautiful poem !

Thank you. I read all these comments through tears. He was SO huge in my life, his passing left a huge vacant hole. He was my boss :lol:

I was sent this today. It was written by someone who worked at the refuge. If I had read this BEFORE I adopted him, there is no way I would have :lol:
I thought he was a quiet cockatoo, sweet as pie.
The first night I brought him home, he chased me around and bit my shin lol. I. thought :omg: what have I done! Well, he took over my world and I tried to make him happy. I kept telling everyone around me, he isn't happy, what can I do? The answer was always, "He is a male Moluccan cockatoo, that is the way they are". I would give him as many carrots as he could fit in his crop, I bought him his favourite wood blocks, I built him a playhouse that he hated! I was his slave to happiness. I wouldn't trade it for the world now. Screen Shot 2021-11-27 at 8.14.35 AM.png

I kept praying he would pull through. Fly free Floyd, you will be missed.
