You can do it! That little tiel needs a home with someone who won't give up on her. There aren't many people who would do what you've done thus far, especially for a bird that is often viewed as less valuable than a 'real' bird. She needs you.
Agreed.

Love conquers mountains.

Beeper got a broken foot and several toe tips missing before we realized her and Nerd could not play well together, plus her natural inclination to go poke the big bird whenever possible. Her foot eventually had several toes contract but it never slowed her down and your girl will do the same. They just roll with whatever they're given and make it work. If you truly think she may be beyond the care you can give her work with the vet and folks here to find a suitable home where she can be happy and have her needs met. You did all the hard work rescuing her and getting her all fixed up so she can have a happy healthy life as is so do what works for both of you and we'll support you. I try to stay at one bird at a time but if one came along that needed rescuing like Beeper the house finch we'd do it again.

The little Hobgoblin is home and snug and safe! :swoon:

No new pictures just yet, because I'm a terrible person and I love to leave you in suspense. :lol: No, but she was super sleepy by the time we got back, so I got her all tucked up in her little temporary housing situation, fawned over her for a million years, then left her alone to go to sleep...and entirely forgot about taking pictures. Wwwwwwhoops. She's dead to the world in a dark room now, so I'm just going to wait until tomorrow to shower you with her beauty. :D

The vets gave me the lowdown about her condition over the past few days, and man, she is just the toughest little string bean. And, great news about her leg: because of the spot where her foot was amputated, she actually has some tarsometatarsus left, which she has been using to hop about like a little cricket (hey, there's another name idea...Kricket :p). She doesn't have to put her weight on the actual stump, which is great because it'll have a much better chance of healing. And be less painful!

Weird diagram to show where her leg ends:

Overall, the Adventures of Tiny 'Tiel have been long and harrowing and dangerous and stressful, but I don't regret a second. She has all the fight in the world packed in her little body, and she deserves every chance to live her life to the absolute fullest. :heart: Welcome home, itty bitty.

Maybe you should write kids book about the two that were lost.

Kricket would be a great name. Being British it immediately occurs to me that cricket has stumps........

.......I'll get my coat!

Yay! I’m so happy she’s finally home with you! I can’t wait to see pictures!! :cantwait:

I also love the name Kricket, and I actually think it would fit her very well. But there are so many great name options for that cutie. :heart:

I loooove the name Katara, but it's already claimed by someone who's waiting for me at the bridge.
I hear you.
But I also love that named and I think that that brave young lady deserves a great name.
Ketera is similar but not the same. And I did name Eliy after Eloy, for me that was an honour to him. I'm not trying to convince you, I'm just telling that to change one letter can work too if you love that name.

Ketera is such a beautiful name!! :swoon:

But would it confuse Kamara?

The wait is over! :lol:

This little hopper is a very busy baby, so it was hard to get any pictures of her that aren't blurred-out action shots. But how wonderful is it that she's so active and happy? :xflove:

She is gorgeous - and such a sweet face! :heart: Just adorable :xflove: Just love that second pic.

And she does look very young. You have another tiel also, right? Being flock birds - they should enjoy each other's company.

I do believe that she was "brought" to you for some reason...:)
