An Explanatory Post – My Quest for The Bird *

Having thought through this for quite a while, I’ve decided to make yet another separate page for Avian Ambition. It’s called My Quest for The Bird. It will have everything and anything on there that has to do with getting my future fid, and I will refer to it often. Here’s the official description on the page…

◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊

This page and its separate categories will be all about my quest for The Bird. If you don’t know already, The Bird is actually the name I use for my future bird; a Yellow-Sided Green Cheek Conure to be more specific. There may be a few birds in my home along the way, but this is definitely the bird that I am aiming for. If you’d like to read more on my story of why I want to get The Bird, you can check this post out.

Since I’m expecting this quest to take several years to complete, I decided to start this page out by adding the information I learn about green cheeks in one category called “Research Ramblings”. I want to research all aspects about owning a green cheek conure, mainly by asking other people who own these kinds of birds. I will also read books, magazines and look through websites from time to time. My main goal is to know as much as I can about this kind of bird before actually trying to find one. I want to know general information about them, their average behavior, their favorite types of foods, and all sorts of things like this. I also want to learn the best way to bring a ‘baby’ or young bird into my home, and how to raise it the right way.

Despite the title of this category, I want to organize the information to make it easier to read and understand for future reference. That way, when a situation occurs like this; “Umm… What was that thing I read about how to discourage my bird from screaming again? *screaming bird in the background* God, why can’t I find it! Be quiet (insert bird’s name here)! Ugghhh!”, I can easily find the right information I need, when I need it. Of course, I won’t be quite that panicky or mad at my bird when it continues to scream uncontrollably… right? Not to say that my bird will end up being a screamer; I’ve heard that most green cheeks are quite quiet birds compared to other conures. Hopefully mine will be one of those.

Anyways, the point I’m trying to make is this: It will almost serve as sort of a ‘guide’ or ‘user’s manual’ for me when I start out with owning a bigger bird for the first time. Specifically The Bird. I want to be able to come back and read advice or tips on caring for my bird, that I have gathered, whenever I need it. I also want to have the information set up the way I find it best suitable for reading. It might not be perfect or the best reference that I can find at the beginning, but at the very least it will be my customized version of what I have learned so far.

Another category that I would like to add is “Wishlist of Wants”, where I will post some reviews, links and/or pictures of the many things that I’d like to buy for The Bird when I get it. This list will include toys, food products, perches, accessories, cleaning products, and anything else that is related to The Bird. When I start this category I would appreciate it if other bird owners, that already have some of these items, posted their own reviews or testaments to let me know the quality that I should expect.

The last category that I think I may add in the future is “Events of the Quest”. These events will be the steps I take towards finding The Bird. Things like finding a vet, buying a cage, visiting shelters or breeders, and buying stuff for The Bird will all be events. I’m thinking that these types of events are going to be near the end of my Quest for The Bird, so they won’t be added until then.

I’d like to say a special thanks to everyone for any support or help given in my Quest for The Bird!
