PetSmart: Green Cheek Conure

PetSmart: Green Cheek Conure

After a long few days it felt good to go visit with some critters. So, on this visit to PetSmart to get some cat food I stopped as I always do to look at the birds, specifically the conures. The one little guy I have been visiting was adopted and on this visit they had a new guy in. He’s being shy but if he’s there for the length of time the last one was, I’m sure I will be able to get him to come over to say hi. Also, there was a cute long haired hamster. He was showing off a bit.

Thanks for watching guys!

I’m on Facebook and Instagram. You can find the links to follow me on my home page here on YouTube. Look for the icons in the upper right hand corner. Hope to see you there!

Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure: Fandango, My New Feathered Friend

Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure: Fandango, My New Feathered Friend

I think he is a green cheek conure. The Crimson’s belly probably glistens red. Anyways, I was going out for a smoke on saturday the 13th of October. I heard a strange bird in a tree. It was very unique and unlike any wild birds. A bit of a mix between Screeching and Squaking. I peeked up in the tree and it took a half minute to find him (or her). I saw this beautiful multicolored bird sitting in this tree. I began thinking how I would scale this tree then I noticed a power box on the building next to the tree. I began climbing the box and realized there was a lock that was a great foothold so I got on top of this 8 or so foot box. I started talking kindly to the bird. He (or she) came over and came onto my finger. I didn’t clamp the birds toes at this point because I wanted to see if the bird would simply be rescued. But Fandango jumped off onto another branch and I sweet talked this bird for about the length of a cigarette. Finally the bird realized the alternitives and came back onto my finger and I clamped this time. I immediately put the bird to my chest to make him (or her) feel secure. Then I hollered at some kids I saw playing nearby because I realized very quickly a jump from 8ft up with a bird in hand wouldn’t work very good. A kid came over he had earplugs in because of a football accident. I told the kid to hold the bird’s whole body and wings. He did so. I should have asked the kid to take a step back so I could use the pipes to crawl the wall down but I wasn’t thinking and I tried to drop off the side and use my foot to catch the lock. I think I caught the lock on my foot which slowed my fall a little. Then fell on my butt. I felt extreme pain instantly but kept my cool and tried to get up slowly. The kid asked If I was okay I said “yeah, Im fine I just dont know where all this (Blood) Nevermind.” The kid said the bird was pecking. So I grabbed the nibbling bird with my bleeding hand and quickly walked inside. (I did thank the kid. And he cheked if I was okay afterward and I thanked him again.) I closed the door. Let the bird free and ran my hand under water, grabbed some ice, I was in so much shock and pain I wanted to cry but I haven’t cried from pain in a very long time. About 5 minutes of dry tears later and I poured some of my Freezer stored Malibu Red over my fingers. I let it sit for about fifteen minutes then hopped in the car, Overdrew my account for medical supplies and a birdcage/cuddlebone/toy/millet spray/Cockatiel bird seed (LOL). The girl at village pets was very kind and put the cage in the car for me as was the woman that helped me with the supplies at cvs. I bandaged my wounds then set the cage up. I let Fandango free in the apartment the first night and we watched the movie “Fandango” with Kevin Kostner (1985) together. In the beginning of the movie, it makes up a 3rd definition for the word: A foolish act. Very memorable day in my mind. Anyways Just showing off my “Free Byrd” and telling my story. Hope you enjoied.
