Maestro

Although I only had Maestro (along with his brother Major) for 11 months, my life will be forever changed by him.
He was always crouched over and when xrays were done we found out he had broken his spine either while hatching or extremely early in his life and it had fused together making his spine bent. Kyphosis is what my vet called it. He also had a liver infection when I got him. Months later he was doing well and living a happy life. Though not able to fly, Maestro enjoyed running around chasing his brother on the bottom of the cage. They loved each other dearly and were never apart.
On April 13th while doing homework I looked over to their cage and saw that Maestro had fallen into the water dish and due to his wings not working, he had no chance of getting himself out...CPR for 20 minutes failed.
Every kind of medicine or therapy I have Maestro he never protested, bit or gave me attitude lol. So much life in such a tiny bird. Despite his conditions, he adapted to as normal a life he could have. I miss my precious baby so much and I wish I was able to save him, God needed another angel and he is definitely mine. <3

What a special bird. I'm so glad we got to know a little more about how sweet he was.
I would love a pic

He does sound like a very noble and brave spirit. I'm very sorry for your loss. He was fortunate to have a person who cared so much for him and took such good care of him. Bless you!
