Hello from New Mexico!

I just arrived after having seen this site mentioned in another forum. I am owned by a Goffin Cockatoo (Amy) who is (our best guess) about 15 years old. We rescued her about 9 years ago and what an adventure it has been! She is my first bird and the only thing I knew about birds when I brought her home was that I knew I could do better than the way she was currently living....

My "flock" also includes 3 dogs (a cattle dog, a catahoula and a rhodesian ridgeback), 2 rescued turtles (red eared sliders) and my loving and (mostly) understanding Hubby!

I work full time, go to school part time, have 2 grown step-children and am a grandmother 4 times over!
