We will all say goodbye some day. Death is as much as Life in this world. Companions, parrots, pigeons or any other you choose to love, will challenge us in their health and wellness care. Even at our best we may miss things, or never be given a clue. Saying goodbye is always difficult, even under the best of circumstances. Maggie Pigeon Queen shows this through her passing.
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.

Mistakes are not the end, but the beginning of improvements.

Felix is my muse. He is also a Parrot. If I expect Felix to NOT act like a parrot, then I am EXTREMELY confused and wrong. If you are expecting your companion parrot NOT to act like a parrot, then you are setting yourself and your parrot up for failure and frustration.
