Still pretty sad.
But I have to tell you we had the coolest bird come in as a stray today (her owner was nuts…)
It was a Conure, which I know nothing about. But it sure was cute, and I named it tie-dye. I’ll post some pictures.
The cool thing about the shelter is I’m so much more comfortable with all animals. I can read them so well. The second I saw the bird I watched her behavior, reached out my hand and told her to step up. And she did. She used her beak first. Most people thought she was trying to bite, but you could tell in her eyes she wasn’t trying to be mean, she just needed it for support.
I felt really accomplished, I feel much more confident in animal handling now. I used to see a bird and pretty much hide cause I didn’t want to have to touch it, now I feel like I could walk into anything with an idea on how to read the animal.
Such an experience, working here.
