A new Bird of Paradise..... We hope.
I have a cockatiel. I've had him since 1998. His name is Bird. Yes, I know, it's not too original but his name fits him perfectly. Over the years I have tried to tame him, much to his distress and my frustration. After several years of un-sucess... I stopped trying and since then we've lived in peace and harmony. Except of course when he hears the crows crowing. He hates them, and in some earlier part of his life before life with me, he must have had a scare of some sorts involving crows. Anyhow, Birds life has been very secluded, quiet and I would imagine very lonely. Today, that's all going to change. I was contacted by the Animal Rescue League last Saturday. They've got a three year old female cockatiel who needs adoption. I thought about it, all weekend... did I want the noise in the house? Did I want the added cost, care etc. of another bird?
I've already named her.
I'll be back in a bit... got to go pick her up.
