Well, I had a great weekend. This past Thursday, I got a call from our bird club president, who said they had been contacted for a bird rescue, and how would I feel about a Blue and Gold Macaw? The club officers knew about the recent loss of Rio, and had been looking out for a good match for me.

The bird got picked up on Friday so they could check her out for temperment and suitability for a "green" big bird owner. Turns out she was a very well-cared for bird, and had no behavioral problems, so she was a good fit. Saturday, I picked up a used cage from the club VP, went to work cleaning it and putting it in order, and that evening she was home.

Her name is Toby. She's 11 years old, and as you can she, she's a beautiful bird. A biggie though. She definitely has a weight to her, and that big nutcracker can exert over 300psi. Having a bird you can trust is a must. So far, we're getting along great. =)

I had a B&G when i was in Cali. Big female, Kona. She HATED females of any stripe, young, old, it didnt matter to her. But when i was home, i couldnt keep her off my shoulder. Lots of love was the command of the day, and she let you know if she was irked. hated to let that bird go. Congratulations on your new avian overlord (^8

I met with Toby's previous owner last weekend. Small world, as not only was she previously involved in the local bird club I am in, her husband recently retired from Northrop here in Palmdale, and we knew a few people in common.

Oh and I did learn her name is indeed spelled "Toby." =)
