Jogging around the block
Oh Sarah i am so sorry...D*** people who neglect these precious creatures...sp glad she got to know love before passing.
He looks very happy. Nice setup!Meet my Reiko <3
Here is my big boy Reiko. He will be seven in September and I just adopted him in may. We are his third family and his last <3 his first parront passed away suddenly and he was rehomed to a member of our local bird club. His next family was unable to keep him because he was too noisy and so he ended up with us. I have always loved birds and always had a connection with them. I have always wanted a macaw and I've always said that I would get one one day but as life progressed "one day" seemed to drift further and further away from me as I got married and started building our family. This last may I decided that I was not going to let this dream slip away and I would do something about it now. I looked at breeders and had one all picked out but then I discover that there was a local bird club right in my city! I much prefer to rescue an animal when it is possible so I inquired if they had any gw macaws because this was my absolute dream bird. I was in luck! They did in fact have one looking for a home and where I live the odds of that are so slim so I seriously think it was fate I got in contact with the owners and went to meet our guy and it was love at first sight. I knew that I would not be walking away without him <3 I am truly surprised how quickly we bonded. He has only been with us for a little over a month now and it feels like he has always been a part of our family. How did we get through life without our Reiko? Lol. he does not like men though and will not let my husband pet him. He will take treats from him but that is all. He really does seem to be bonded to me and is a one person bird. I am a little sad at that because I wanted him to be a family pet but I feel so privelaged to be his chosen person and for him to take to me so quickly. He is a bit of a perch potato and we are working on that, in fact I just got his harness in the mail and took him out for his first walk yesterday! Once again he amazed me by letting me put the harness on right away. He is such a great guy and I amm so happy to have him in my life! Without further ado here is Reiko!

SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL!
View attachment 187642 Tucker came to join our family a couple of days ago after being given up by his first family. Not sure what the whole story is, and it really doesn't matter, he needed a home and we have one! He joins our eckie, cockatiel, and 2 cats. He's a bit of a rascal, and will bite everything and anything that gets close enough for him to reach. He will not leave his cage at this point, and definitely doesn't want us intruding in his space. We are hoping that with a healthy diet, and lots and lots of patience, he will learn that ours is his forever home and we are so very happy to have him. He's a cute little guy, isn't he?
