That’s exactly how I came by my first parrot. As soon as he started in squawking for attention my husband wanted me to give him back! Instead, I went online, found a parrot group (Patagonian Feathers to Treasure) and started asking questions. They were invaluable. The very first day the administrator of the group gave me his phone number & I called him. Then I educated myself; now, 17 birds later, we’re all sitting here fat & happy in Florida. I would love to visit some of the parrot parks, do an ecotour, etc., but it’s hard (as you may know) to find someone whom I can trust to care for my fids while I’m away. I’m not complaining. My life is fulfilling; never has been more!
