Remember your first date? A little uncomfortable, but full of potential. You and your partner aren't quite sure how to communicate yet. You spend dinner finding things to talk about, you wonder if you'll hold hands later. You wonder if you SHOULD hold hands later. Building relationships is time consuming and it requires patience. Not to mention wondering who's going to make the first move.
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.

A breeder turned rescuer and advocate, Deb has 40 years of experiences and reality based knowledge. Been there, done that as the saying goes. Life and an open mind allows the facts and realities to realign for new purpose, if we let the enlightenment in to show us the way. We can all learn new facts, to make better choices for companion parrot's and their advocacy. I appreciate Deb's honesty and her new commitments.
There will be a time, in such a long lifespan as a parrot, where they choose not to choose their favorite person. It may last a day, it may last a season, it may just go on for years. Choice is the gift we can all give our companions, and at times it may be painful, but it is a powerful force in building that long term trust.
With a lifespan as long as a human's parrots change their minds, tastes and choices with the same frequency. Just because your bird favors you today, does not mean that favor will be bestowed a year from now. Growing with your parrot requires empathy and understanding to their changing preferences and tastes.
