I did not buy another bird....

I did not technically buy another bird...But I am fostering one!!
I met the little Bourke last time I visited the Rescue here and I just couldn't help it. (She has a name already, it Rosey. Lol)
She's about a year old, has never been tamed. She was purchased at a bird Mart for someone's daughter and soon after unwanted. She's been at the rescue for sometime. She mostly just growels, but if you whistle at her she perks up and lets out a little chirp.
I'm really curious how the same methods I used with Jasper (who was hand fed baby) will work with her. I know it will take a lot of patience. I'm putting her in the guest room with Tobie and Lilly for some company. It should be a nice change because I don't think she's comfortable surrounded by macaws and Amazon and big birds all day. She will have contact with it John and I to have the best chance of bonding and I'm also concerned about not disturbing our bond with Jasper who IMO is the perfect bird. Pictures to come (Photobucket has been super annoying)

You crack me up! I love how the flock increases, time to time, when you least plan on it ever happening again! Rosey is a beauty---are those bright feathers her adult coloring?

She's about a year old, she has a bit of the rainbow-ish coloring on her rump. She's a little scruffy I expect her feathers to really improve with a more relaxing environment. Right now she's kinda jumpy I think she bangs her tail a bit to often.

LOL...congratulations! I'm sure this new little one will do well with you...that's one lucky birdie to have the 'Bird Woman of Los Vegas' take her in and tend to her.

I just knew I should have been taking bets on you getting another birdie...I'd be racking in the cash right now!

Conrats! She couldn't have a better home. It will be interesting to see if she progresses as quickly as Jasper did since she was not hand fed and he was.

Can't blame me for this one, Violet

No, but when I get the Meyers or the Jardine I will for sure.

Congratulations! Poor Rosey, it breaks my heart to think of birds bought on impulse and going unloved. Lucky she has you now! Btw, where are the pictures of her? TheBeans referenced some, but I don't see any?
