Hi all. Meet Charlie. I picked him up at LaGuardia airport Tuesday night. It was horrifying for a while. He started his journey at 1:00pm from Sarasota Florida and was landing at 11:00pm with Delta cargo in NY. I get to the cargo building at 10:30pm because the flight was coming in early and Delta cargo was CLOSED! Found out from a maintenance guy in the lot that they have been closing at 8:00pm because of Covid. How do you have live animals coming in at 11:00 and you close 3 hours before.? The guy told me to come back tomorrow. I wasn't leaving. I went to Delta arrivals to the lost baggage office and told them about it. They didn't even know that cargo closes early. They spoke to a supervisor and again I was told tomorrow. I went out to baggage claim where one of the supervisors was, right next to a luggage carousel with people all around that have been waiting for their luggage for an hour already, and proceeded to get loud. " How can you ship someone's pet and close the building before the flight even landed? MY BIRD WILL BE DEAD BY TOMORROW!" They quickly brought me back into the baggage office and miraculously another supervisor called to tell them that an employee is bringing my precious cargo to me there. 15 minutes later my little boy was in my hands. I actually cried when I saw him. I was so worried. I will post my experiences with him when I got home in another post. The good and the bit of bad. Thank you all for your help in advising me for getting my little boy.
Update?????

Thanks for all your replies. I commented using wrong wording before, I am going with a fully weaned bird. I purchased the fancy neon green one with the cherry beak from the lady who says she is "100% sure" it is a male. Hope so, but either way he is a beautiful well tamed bird. He arrives at LaGuardia airport tonight. The night before she ships them, she and her helper handle those birds and sends photos and videos to the purchasers. The first photo was from a couple of weeks ago (the photo I purchased the bird from), and the second photo and video was from last night. Can't wait to pick him up. (Can't post video so I did screenshot of sections)
was the breeder in west florida by chance? i think i’ve ran into that lady and her “cherry red beak” and “trust me i know he’s a male” tactics before

I don’t think you’ll get a response, the OP hasn’t been on since August of 2021
