Alrighty, so I really wanted a parrot back when I was in 8th grade. My parents-even my dad-were against me getting a parrot at the time, so we decided I'd get my bird fix by volunteering at a bird shelter. I had a good time with that, and I got to interact with a bunch of birds. But I had to stop because of football and stuff like that. For the record, I'm not involved in stuff that keeps me after school for long periods of time anymore.
So, has anyone else volunteered at a bird shelter in the past? If so would you care to share any stories and stuff? I really liked this little caique named Joker, and he was the first bird I ever really interacted with. There was also this sweet female Eclectus, but I can't seem to remember her name. In addition to that, my dad bought me this nice jacket, which I took to the shelter when I was going to put in some volunteer work one day. There was this macaw I (nervously) interacted with, and he bit the plastic zipper tag thingy right off of my jacket. So that all was pretty awesome. Feel free to share any stories you might have!
