Default Giving pamda the BIRD!

If the owner doesn't show up soon, in the words of MLK, "free at last...free at last"

That doesn't look like "free" to me, Queeg.

Note twist ties holding cage doors shut because Lovies are known escape artists, according to the Internet sites I've found. Plus, for the past few days the weather has broken and people have their houses open.

The bird is banded, but I learned on the 'Net that exotics for sale must be banded.

Of course we did not PAY for this bird ("free?") but I have a sinking feeling it will cost in the long run if the owner doesn't come forward.

Everyone around this area goes to the local WaWa (convenience store) to put up lost and found notices. So far, no calls.

If I'd lost a pet, it's the first place I would go. But who would want this nasty homicial chirper as a pet?

I live in interesting times.

Pamda - do love birds like to be in pairs? Or am I mixing them up with another breed?

He's a cutie pamda! My daughter hand -fed a baby love bird to adulthood many years ago. She called him Squeaky. He was great to play boomerang with....you held him on your hand, flung him, and right back to you he would come! Loved to sit in your hair and nibble at the strands, and occasionally, your ear.

Parrots usually bond with ONE person, and will not bite their beloved. I was unloved by the parrots that have passed through our household. Exceptional, intelligent creatures, although neurotic.

Queeg has the right idea because that's probably what the last owners did. They do it all the time in Florida and there are tons of lovebirds living in the wild down here.

This bird makes me smile! I think it is my Skipper re-born! The bird my dad hated and tried to get rid of and the more ornery things he did to that bird, the more the bird loved my dad!!! It was truly funny until my mother had enough and gave the bird away!

She had her own business in our home and if she didn't stop working exactly at noon to put the tea kettle on, the bird would raise such a ruckus you could not stand to be in any of the rooms near by. This is why it spent alot of time in my room but it wanted to be in the kitchen, which my dad hated. Ahh, the memories! Susie
