My first picture is of a wonderful, yet confused Green Cheeked Amazon. His name is Doc, and he was a rescue from a very serious abuse/neglect case in Palermo, NY. (No clue how old he is.. your guess is as good as mine =) ) He has some emotional and behavioral problems, but I love him all the same even if he's extra moody. In this photo, he is playing with his jingle ball, which is tosses around and rolls around with his beak. He also enjoys taking his leftover anger out on it.
My second photo is of a White Fronted Amazon, Phoebe. We have not a clue how old she is, but if I had to guess Id say somewhere between 10-15 years old. She was loved by an older woman who passed away, and then got mistreated by another person.. So she ended up in a Avian Rescue in Hastings, NY where I then adopted her and spoiled her with all the love she can get.. She enjoys eating Grapes, Blueberries, and Strawberries (as you can see in the picture!!!)
My final photo is of another Green Cheeked Amazon, named Kramer.. Ive had Kramer for the better part of 10 years (Hes 30 something years old!!!). I use to be his favorite person, until he ment Doc, now they are buddy buddy!! He was also abused, and I rescued him in Wallingford, CT. Before I got him, he had gone through a ton of abuse, such a kids poking him, people chasing him with brooms, and throwing balls at him! Hes come around well and is pretty resiliant!
This birds amaze me more and more everyday. The way they come around from abuse and neglect has no words. They grow and shine everyday!
