"I have to say reading others posts really warmed my heart. This past Feb. we lost our red-lored amazon during a very cold spell and were absolutely heart-broken. She was not clipped and would love to fly all around the house. We were forced out of the house at about 7 am due to the neighbors in the other side having carbon monoxide problems. Candi was fine til the fire trucks got there, and then was very skittish. On the way back in to the house, she jumped from something and took off. . . we never saw her again though we spent 10and1/2 hours walking in the 5 degree day looking. Though I then was so lost, I now do believe that when the door closes, look for the open window. Six weeks later, my husband and I were offered a "scarlet macaw." Of course we were a little hesitant til we met Hauto. He is truly a green wing who was bought by someone who apparently had more money then sense. The bird was allowed to fly around their house while the child pursued with a baseball bat, or so the story goes. The result. . . a bird with two broken wings that instead of being taken to the vet was put in his cage with one perch in the basement with barely enough food to keep him alive. When he was two he was given to a friend of a friend who couldn't keep him because of a young daughter whose new favorite thing was to stick fingers in the cage. So he was offered to us and after meeting him there was no way not to. For all that he has been through, he is an amazing bird. He is actually a green-wing and after a few showers and a few weeks of a good diet he looks great. the vet gave him a clean bill of health, except for 2 wing that will never heal. He says a few words and continues to learn more. My family is blessed to have him, and we don't need to worry that he will ever fly away."
