Hi Everyone, We had a beautiful male Plumhead Parrot named Jasper! We had just moved up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina, Qld. I think it was almost the end of 2013 at the time. We had only been there for about 3 weeks when Jasper flew away and being in a completely new area and lots and lots of trees for as far as you can see, he must of lost his bearings and never came back :-( :-( he was about 4 and a half years old and had him from a tiny little syringe fed baby!!! He use to mimic my family and myself. But loved hanging out with me all the time. He use to live in the house with us and also loved spending time outside in the trees with a couple of our other birds at the time. We MISS him so very much and hope to god that he was found safely!!!!! But would loved to find him and bring him home!!!!!! If anyone up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina way and have found our baby....we would LOVE to hear from you!!!!! I know it's a long shot but I've read so many stories where animals have been reunited with their owners and am praying this will happen with our 'Jasper'!!!!! Leeanne :-)

Beardsley is almost 37; I got him when he was 7 months. I was told he was an Orange Cheek Amazon from the Red Lored family, but he looks just like the pic of the Red-lored Amazon. I was wondering what kind of branch/stick I can give him for chewing. He loves to chip and pick at my wooden furniture, but he is destroying them! Any suggestions?

A male Zebra finch has started to feed in my back garden, is it likely to survive in the wild.

    It could, finches are very adaptable. However, if the weather is extremely cold (freezing) in your area during the winter, it may not.

Today I was promised a maui sunset macaw and the guy sent pictures to me of the bird that I was getting. I sent 600.00 by money gram to the guy. I was told the bird was gonna be to me in 7 to 8 hours. I was told he was giving me a great deal because I didn't want the little lady for breeding just my forever companion. The money included the shipping. Granted I had never had a bird shipped before so I didn't know about it. I got scammed out of the money. After the guy had my money then he said I had to send another 1200 dollars for the insurance for the bird to get to me safely then the money would be refunded back to me. I sent him all of my money that was saved up except for the money for the food. I now have no money and no bird. Now I can't even try to get another sunset macaw because he has my money. I was so excited about having my sweet loving forever companion now I only have a broken heart. Please be careful on giving money out to anyone expecting to get your companion. Don't end up with a broken heart like me.

    Hi I almost fell for the same scam but from Namibia. I have a Red fronted Macaw Male in Namibia. It is the only one in Namibia. The only place I can get one is in South Africa and it costs R 14.000.00. The transport and quarantine will cost me R 16.000.00 and it is not worth it. So I am going to put Blue and Gold with my bird to get a Sunset Maui macaw.

    Don't Ever Ever Ever Wire Money to Strangers to buy something you saw on the Internet. They are all mostly SCAMS !!! Please Parents -- Tell your teenagers and children to beware of SCAM Internet ads and that they should only buy in person from Sellers that you can meet in person. 90% of all Sellers who want you to send them western union money are all crooks and con-artists and you will never, never, never receive whatever it is they were pretending to sell you. -- These thieves pack the classified ad sections of internet web sites with their fake ads selling non-existent pets, cars, boats, and even pretend to be landlords who will rent you houses - (they pull the addresses of vacant homes from real estate web sites).

For the last few days I've seen this beautiful bird at my bird feeders. Today while outside I saw it and wanted to take a photo. I was amazed when the bird allowed me to come within inches of it to take a photo. I've since learned it is a Budgerigar Parakeet. Someone suggested it's probably someone's pet and for me to try to catch it. I don't know much about that and wouldn't know what to do with it. Do they or can they survive in Maryland?

    Budgies aren't native to Maryland, so it probably was someone's pet. Parrots can handle some temperature changes but with the extremes in your state I would suggest that it won't survive outside through the winter. If you can catch it, this page offers some great info on how to care for it. Good luck!
