There are a few "parrot shaming" sites.
This one's pretty funny

The Rb refuses to hold still and pose with a shaming note, but I did get a video of him killing one.

Little maniac.

Oh, and about that raggedy flight feather...
He just finished growing out a beautiful set of turquoise beauties, but then during one of his conniptions, he bent one out at a right angle. Now I have to look at (and photograph) that for a year, unless it straightens out or falls out.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I know, I should be grateful he HAS feathers, after all I've put him through, especially for the 20+ years I was working, all the moves, feeding him so many eggs, etc.

Okay, I forgive you, Rickeybird!

Whoahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! He pulled that damaged feather out. I found it on the cage floor, root and all, no blood. I guess he knew it was messed up.

Here he is, minus right-angle feather (visible in previous shaming vid, performing a percussion tune he composed, using plastic links and his cage-top. I believe he is titling it "Ode to the Parrot Forum".

Thank you, Rickeybird, for the lovely composition you created in our honor!

And yes, as I was reading your first posting about the feather, I was thinking that it was not going to last a year - they don't allow a single broken, bent or crooked feather to remain, it's a survival trait because a bird with a defective plumage is vulnerable.

She's passed away in April, but I found this picture of my Hispanolian, Tanya, and had to share. This was taken by the rescue before I adopted her.

Nicholas. I've had him since early July. (This is an old picture. His beak is better now...better diet since June of '15).

He is wild-caught, I'm guessing about 25 years old?
