I have been known throughout the years as the "bird lady." Whenever my friends and neighbors have stray or injured birds I am always the first to be called. Yesterday, I got such a call from my friend who lives two cul-de-sacs away. Her frantic call was telling me she had an injured colorful "exotic bird" of some kind in her backyard. I said I would be right there thinking I just might get me a beautiful cockatoo or a colorful conure! It wasn't quite that magnificant however, just a lovebird but still very pretty. I retrieved the friendly but hurting bird, carried it home and tried to nurse him back to health but he later died. But, he defnitely reminded me of our cute lovebird named Cheddar that met his dimise too when Alvin asphyxiated him. (that is another story) So, how about another one - I think I would like that!!!!!
