I figured we needed some good news around here.

I don't know why you say this. I am always a little sad when a friend of mine goes away. It doesn't matter how long we have know each other or that the move is beneficial to my friend it still leaves an empty spot for a time. This is normal.

Anyways, I really appreciate all that you've done for the birds. I read this thread comment for comment from page 1 to here and decided my first post here would be to thank you and all the other volunteers everywhere that help save these animals. AND give them great homes. You've come quite a ways since you started at the rescue and it really does show. Truly an awesome topic and I wish only the BEST of luck to you, the rescue, and the birds there
Keep up the great work, you are seriously an inspiration!

Recently, someone took a Conure to the vet. She had adopted this bird from us. I forget why the bird had to have an X-ray or ultra sound, but the vets told her that the bird was a female. They based this on the pelvis and other factors in the physical exam. They had also taken blood and were doing the DNA, but they were confident that this bird was a female. I told the volunteer that the vets were wrong, the bird was a male. Everything in the bird's behavior and his preferences said male. I spent all spring and summer with the bird. I knew this bird was a male, but if the team of vets said female, maybe this was one of the times I was just wrong.
The DNA came back. The bird is a male.
The only time I was wrong was with a little Peach Front Conure, although looking back with what I know now, I should not have had an opinion one way or the other. He was too scared while he was at the rescue to demonstrate much sexual behavior. He was focused on survival.
