Over the last few years I may have mentioned once or twice that my dream bird is the red-bellied parrot. I have had to reluctantly (VERY in some cases) turn down various birds that needed homes as my bird room filled up, because I've known that sooner or later, I would get my red-bellied parrot. And I've known these last few months that there was a good possibility that would be happening soon, but the decision wasn't 100% made, and I've been afraid to get my hopes too high even while I was fairly certain of the outcome...However, today I spoke with a woman I've grown to know and respect from one of the mailing lists I'm on, and it is official: Maxwell the red-bellied parrot is coming to join the Peters flock. Maxwell is a male RBP, I've known of him from the afore-mentioned list for a couple of years now, and loved him from afar. He has been my ideal, and I'd always hoped when I got one, it would be much like him. So when Mary first contacted me I was flabbergasted, I'd never even thought I'd get to meet Maxwell, let alone have the opportunity every day to play with him and cuddle him and kiss his sweet little head...

He's very well socialized, has a large vocabulary and isn't afraid to use it , is playful, confident, and adventurous...Mary has given him all her best since she got him, and he reflects that.

Also coming with Maxwell is Miracle, a greencheek conure. She's 8 years old and very social and friendly and sweet, loves everybody but especially men (little flirt!), and it's so interesting that the whole time I've had Chuckie (greencheek with issues), I've wondered what it would be like to have a greencheek that has all of Chuckie's intelligence and spunk and sense of mischief and quickness and wit, but that was also touchable. From what Mary has told me, little Miracle is all of these things!

It's been hard not to say anything about it but I wanted to honor Mary's request that I not do so yet. This has been very very difficult for her, her reasons are her own but it took a lot of love on her part to do put aside her own feelings for the sake of theirs. They will be flying here hopefully next week, or as soon as possible anyway. I am so blessed...

And now my flock will be complete!

Before that moment these creatures were simply a decoration, an element in the background to our existence. But now they are transformed to individuals, hearts pounding, eyes searching, throats calling as they live out lives as vital as our own. Jane Swan
