Mango actually perched on my finger for 3 or 4 minutes last night while eating some seeds. I just stood very still. I am so proud of her!!

I want to love this post many times Craig. I always look forward to a Mango update.
I see that @Sodapop&Co. is working the way through this long, long story. What a read, huh?

Oh. My. Goodness. I just finished. Read through every single page. My emotions: :loveshower: :faint: :laugh::cry3::sad7: but mainly :loveshower:You're probably tired of hearing this by now but you are just an amazing person for sticking with this poor bird through so many ups and downs. Mango came to you, scared to death, neglected, awfully depressed and unhappy. You gave her freedom over a huge cage and your condo, you gave her health, confidence, happiness (and of course wonderful Nutriberries!); you showed her what it felt like to be safe and happy and to have friends. Right now she has the freedom to leave and do her own thing if she doesn't want to interact with you, but she also has the confidence to come over to you for treats and companionship. And that is the greatest, most noble thing one can do for a bird - let them have that kind of freedom while still offering them more. She's beginning to understand that you are trustworthy and can be the source of great things, happy feelings, good food.

You're doing so good. Really. I can believe very well that it got awfully frustrating and even heart-breaking at times but you stuck with her and now look how much happier she is! She won the lottery the day you made the wonderful decision to take a chance on her. Thank you. Best wishes to you and your Mango from me and my flock.

i am so amazed that you read through the entire thread!!!!! WOW!!!!!!

your post means the world to me. So encouraging! THANK YOU! That made my day.

mango is such a smart, sweet bird. That makes it so easy to want to give her a good life. Yes, VERY frustrating at times, but so rewarding.

Best wishes to you and your flock as well!!

Excellent progress. Just think what might have become of Mango if you had left her in that dark lonely shop... So it must be worth all the effort.
i could not agree more!! The thought of her being in that dark, lonely pet store just kills me. So happy to have her living here. To me, she has become a very special little bird.

Thank you so much for the encouragement!!

i can’t believe @Sodapop&Co. read the ENTIRE thread!!!!!! It’s like a novel!!!
It really is like a novel! A wonderful inspirational novel full of plot twists and clever foreshadowing and exciting happenings. I also can't really believe I read, what, two years? worth of posts in two days but it was wonderful. And I picked up loads of helpful information to use with my flock so thanks to all who participated! :D

I'm glad for your thread Craig... to show others just how long it can take to create a bond with a bird and to show how persistence and patience is key. Good for you!!!!!!
