    Wow, that must've been really scary! I'm glad the bird landed on you instead of flying away!

    Wow - so glad your bird flew to you and into a tall tree or just away. That is a very close call.

    WOW!!! You are one heck of a lucky person!!! That is the reason when we have people over to visit I always put a zip tie on boomers cage so no one can let him out when we are not watching them.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I was just in a pet supply store and their lovebird decided I was his next girlfriend. Right onto my shoulder and no salepeople around. I had to stand there another 10 minutes praying that no one would open the front door!

    How cute Robin Boomer did the same thing to my sister years ago and that is why he ended up coming home with her, it was LOVE at first sight when she saw him sitting up there on her. Yes, we got boomer from her because boomer thought he could fight with her amazon, not a good thing at all for either bird!
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I think that could have been what happened to Tequila before I found him. Either that or his owners just didn't care. He wasn't in very good shape when I found him. Two tail feathers, bad looking beak. Dull colors... but now... His tail is almost all the way grown out, his beak is nice from his love of the cuttle bone, and his colors are very bright.

    THANK GOD he landed on your shoulder. That would've been horrible.
