Wings Day, Woo-hoo!!!

These two little birds are about four ounces and four inches tall. The blue is Lapis the grey is Ashland.

Yet they saved the mental health of this one who suffered a loss of Nye who died in August. Everyone knows that animals feel deeply. They love, they get upset, they cry in my case since Jasper can cry when he's hurting and so much more. If more people realize that animals are just like us when it comes to emotions maybe they take better care of them. Maybe they wouldn't abandon them maybe they wouldn't shuffle them from place to place. The reason I have been rescuing birds since 1998. I am Jasper's 2nd owner and what I got when he came home was a very emotional bird who didn't know what he had done wrong and a bird who was scared. But I tell him repeatedly you are in your forever home you are not going anywhere. He has been with us since 1999. Animals get it. Humans not all the time. So Jasper and I grieved. Making sure he didn't get any sicker because he was struggling those little birds came home.

Wingsday in Decorah :wuv:

From Raptor Resource Project:

November 21, 2022: Close-up of handsome HD in Decorah. This one is pretty clear, at least to me - his beak and collar are both shorter than HM's.

November 20, 2022: HD and HM gleam in the sunlight, resplendent against the bright blue sky.

Back home in Northern Maine I grew up in a house in front of a lake. Across that lake there are quite a few nests of eagles. I enjoy looking out to find them and then finding them every time I go.

I'm not going now. I went in July with my sister, who lives a state up, so hubby and son took over. A couple of times when my family drove up , Jasper came with us. Him looking at the cars and sights was fun. He was a hit all over. By the way, 27 hours one way from my house to my hometown.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, sis.🥰

Awesome. Was he a large parrot like Jasper? Jas is a Yellow Cheek Amazon. Our son was just under 10. You can foster but it be hard as heck to not take them in.

Yeah he was a large Parrot I was really interested an employee of my hubby needed to find a home. Hubby was all over it and I was really leaning towards getting him. My eldest at the time was 4 the middle was 21/2 the youngest my daughter was a newborn and the youngest was just not even a consideration lol. Fortunately he was able to get a family member to watch him for a bit....

Awesome. Yes, four kids four years and younger, yeah, I might not have either if that was me. That is a lot on your plate. We have a few sanctuaries for parrots here. If one was closer I would volunteer there. There is a place near us that needs volunteers to hang out with cats. Thinking on that one. I mean, hang out with cats.
