Morticia was a bird nobody wanted,
she was in an aquarium at a bird mart
and was the only one the breeder hadn't sold. She wasn't a very pretty
bird then, but we saw her and couldn't leave without her. During the
next 6 months she made 33 trips to the vet and required surgery to treat
an anaerobic bacterial infection that was non-responsive to
antibiotics. While we have 15 other birds she is our special baby.
When we travel she goes with us and loves all the attention she gets
when out in public. this picture was taken during a trip to Arizona.
