The Rocky Road. Something we as companion parrot flock members may not talk about, but probably should more often. There will be days we struggle. We're only human and they are only exotic parrots. Because the basic truth that a parrot will act like a parrot first dictates those moments. Some struggles are small, some are large, and some are plain disheartening at times. I appreciate Valerie's candor in this story. It's okay to have a bad day. Because you can make a great day tomorrow.
We've gathered and continue to gather wonderful Companion Parrot Advocates from around the world to write their stories and experiences. These are Advocates who are making a difference by working tirelessly in Advocacy itself, Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary and Avian Veterinarian Care. These stories, and real life experiences are here for you to read, share, learn and apply not only to your own flock, but to your own efforts inside your own companion parrot advocacy.
I hope you'll find ideas and inspiration while reading through these Advocate Articles. Remember, your thoughts and comments are important, they are integral to the success of our prime directive here; To give every parrot, every where, a happy home.

We all love happy endings! Particularly the companion parrots living them! Sweetie is fitting in just fine and dandy these days.
Advocacy, and standing in the line of fire where laws can be an injustice to the companion is a terrifying and gut wrenching part of many who work out in the field. Penelope and her growing relationship with Lauren ends harshly, but this moment ends nothing in the heart and drive of Lauren. There are serious issues right now, far more serious than you can imagine. It's time to prioritize the real work of companion parrot advocacy, globally.
Change starts with knowledge. Global change starts with a global perspective inside context. Jana's goal is fearless and large. Create better laws and get them enforced inside the lives of companion parrots of Estonia. First you have to understand what those laws are now.
Words are powerful. They can steer us into the best of choices and understanding, or they can destroy a conversation and a goal. Mindfully choosing and rightfully using words not only makes our work stronger, but defines our advocacy clearly. What of the word "rescue"? Rescue has taken on a meaning these days that can muddle the real picture of companion parrot advocacy. Pam makes a simple but poignant example with the story of Cracker.
The world is full of wonderful advocates and their stories of rescue, ransom and happy endings. I'd like to introduce, Jana. And her Rescue Story of Carolyna. Jana lives in the Country of Estonia, and her advocacy travels farther than you might imagine. And I am so very proud to say Jana and her work are now part of FlockCall and our global efforts.
