Extra: Charlie Update
I went to visit my little pal Charlie at the shelter today. Here he is, safe and happy. He has his own cage, toys, a mirror, a perch and sunflower seeds and other tasty treats. He did a little dance back and forth on his perch, complete with head bobbing when I came to say hello.
I only had two responses to my ad – one from a 16 year old, but after comparing markings, we agreed that Charlie is not her lost bird. Another from somebody who wanted to adopt him (I referred him back to the shelter, where he can apply properly).
I know he’s living a much better life than scared in my back yard with not enough food and a nasty blue jay circling him.
