Meet the newest member of our family, Dexter the sun conure. (Crappy photo I know but there will be more to come.) It's been almost 10 months since our boy parrot, Bubba, was startled and flew up into a tree. The problem was he didn't know how to fly down. That's him in that very, very, very tall pine tree in our neighbour's yard.
Try as we might we couldn't get him down and eventually he flew off into the big wide world. Heartbroken we swore we wouldn't get another. Our girl parrot Portia would get all our love.
That was until a friend asked if we would take her bird ... and we did. It's only been a couple of days but Portia and Dexter are getting along famously. Each has their own cage but they spend daylight hours out on perches and ropes in the stables only heading into bed at night. Most importantly they both have freshly clipped flight feathers. No more lost birds.
