Finally joined and am looking forward to joining the community. We have a 9month old Black-Capped Conure named Morgan. Have not had him sexed yet.
We are just outside of NYC in Astoria. Morgan came to us through a great store in NYC called Bird Camp where we got to visit with him several times after he hatched until finally coming home with us in January.

I'm Karin, and we have a zoo here in Canandaigua, NY. We have our beloved Frankie, a one year old Sunday conure who is spoiled rotten. So spoiled that he walks around the dining room table during dinner, picking what he wants off everyone's plate. Yes, he rules this house. (We call him a he but we really have no idea). We also have Baxter, a toy fox terrier, Archie, a lab mix rescue from the pound, and Deedee, our ball python.
We also have two human children, Matt and Jessica.
I'm thrilled I found this site!

My name is Evo. I live in South Dakota and am soon to move to Iowa. I have a Yellow Nape Amazon, Jaya. "She" has been with me since she was 9 months old and is now over 16 years old.
I've fostered birds, as well as other pets. I used to work as an Avian & Sm. Animal Vet Tech. It was heart wrenching at times, but also fun and spontaneous and truly thought provoking. It taught me much.
I also have a small dog, Bootsie. She is about 15 yrs. old. As the runt of a litter, I brought her home to try and save her with bottle feedings. I was nursing my son at the time also, so why not put another feeding on the schedule? She was so tiny and seemed so fragile. I lost her in the house on several occasions and would find her in the oddest places. She is part Jack Russell and part Corgie, but honestly she is more the spitting image of a little bitty Border Collie than anything else. She loves to travel and is very intuitive. She's even saved my life on one occasion.
Boots and Jaya understand each other quite well. Bootsie respects Jaya's space and Jaya throws any extra food she doesn't want on the floor for Bootsie. They seem to have things worked out and get along better than most siblings do.
Both of them have watched the children grow up and leave home. Now it is just the three of us. We are soon to move to a new home with a room-mate and this is giving me a bit of stress. I'm wondering how well all is going to balance, but hopefully everyone will fall into step in a short time.
It is nice to be here. With a move coming, you may not see a lot of me for a bit, but I do except emails and will be around. I really enjoy being part of a bird community again. Very special people indeed!

I personally own Three Budgies, Sunshine, Nipper, and Chipper. They are all abandoned animals that have been left at the store by people who didn't want the responsibility anymore. In addition to the birds, I have a Guinea Pig named Starbucks, a rescued Maine Coon named Magicat, two rescued Italian Greyhounds named Vinnie and Geno, and a pound puppy named Dozer. A few months ago, I lost my whitefaced cockatiel, Lucky, to a respiratory infection she just couldn't kick. I don't know how old she was. She had been with my fiance for eight years, but he was not her first owner.

I'm Tiffany from Tasmania, Australia. I currently have 1 bird, a green budgie named Tweety who now lives with my grandmother to keep her company. Tweety bites. Hard. She loves my Nan though and attempts to talk back.
Anyways, I'm getting a Pied Cockatiel friend next weekend, he's really very beautiful. I look forward to becoming a part of the board, as is everyone one else.
