On the Wings of Love:
, Problem Birds Find Feathered 'Friends'.

our chat here
, and specifically the cockatoo link
. I love parrots, but they can be problematic.
I also miss fellow parrot owner and expert, Beeswacky.
My parrot, Turtle Bird, can be a moody little dragon at times; I keep in mind that he didn't choose to live in captivity even as I'm bandaging my hands. Buddhists give real meaning to the word "compassion." Encouraging story. Thanks Ralph.
how did she know I was a Buddhist???
So good to hear of a place that takes in those most in need. Some stability and loving kindness can go a long way with birds (or any animals I guess, but it's especially key for those who can deafen with shrieks and have unsewing machines on their faces). Turtle Bird is a great name, kinnakeet!
Thanks, patita... he likes his name too, and enjoys reminding me what it is, very loudly, usually at sunrise. But that's part of the fun! *still laughing about the unsewing machine* Buddhists seem to be the only group who really grasp the important concepts, RTD, at least in my opinion. And bird people are usually fascinating and tolerant. Great combo.
Parrots teach man to speak again: A US fireman who lost his power of speech in a traffic accident has been taught to speak again by parrots.
I know I shouldn't be thinking this, and I'm happy for the fireman, but
do you think he eats a lot of soup with those crackers?
