A few of you have been following the saga of Kevin, my sweet cockatiel who was paralyzed in both legs/feet after a severe head injury 3.5 months ago. (You can find more threads on her in Special Needs.) Her recovery has been slow but dramatic -- probably never 100% but absolutely functional. Tonight for the first time since her injury, she jumped on her favorite swing and didn't fall. I just had to share with everyone one example of how resilient our littles can be.

Awesome news @enigma731. Goes to show how resilient these birds can be, and how a little work can bring such great rewards. You"ve done a brilliant job there.

ETA: I've not been following your tale, but going to read up now

That's great. You just have to do everything possible for a bird with such a desire to thrive.
