Why should anyone care about these birds? To answer that question, one of our adopters/volunteers told us about two of her parakeets, Miracle and Poppy. Miracle flew like a rock - meaning straight down to the floor.
"Well, today Miracle found himself on the floor again and when I didn't notice him right away, Poppy got to a spot on the outside of the cage where he could see Miracle and also get my attention with his chirping and acrobatics. Once he knew I was watching him, he switched his focus toward the floor, knowing I'd follow his gaze. Miracle stepped up to my hand from my floor and Poppy then watched him non-stop until I got him back to the cage.
Why do we save them? Because they are intelligent, thinking companion birds who deserve it ... even when not physically perfect."
