Check it out , the amazing story. Just makes you smile.
You can smile knowing that someone — your ruckus-causing parakeet — is feeling pretty good at the moment.
A heart warming story.
My granddaughter has not had very much good fortune in keeping pets. She has had many, parakeets, sugar gliders, baby rats.
She is working full time as a nursing assistant and going to college to get her RN Nursing degree.
She is in love. He’s a Keeper.
All her friends are having babies. Her babies are parakeets. They acquired Nina and Raspberry as their first ones back in August 2013. The cage is a beautiful, clean castle.

A few days ago she posted a video of Nina and Raspberry loving on each other and said Nina was a good bird, she will be missed.
Then I found out Nina didn’t die, she flew away. She had recently gotten her wing feathers.
The door was opened slightly, the birds were free flying and out she flew.
She said the bird flew so far and then she saw it again in the trees in the back. Her dad, boyfriend went to get her, determined and armed with nets, whistles, bells and anything they thought would get Nina’s attention.
Darkness came and they had to sadly give up. The next day at work she was just getting ready to print out a memory of Nina. Her boyfriend called and said “She’s back, we got her. “
Actually he said they put the cage with Raspberry and the two new birds they had just gotten (Miley and Cianna) out on the balcony and Nina flew right to it. Those two were mates, always kissing and preening each other.
I guess Nina had the experience of her life. Flying free and then back safe and sound with her mate. Too think of her being out in the darkness, alone all night. Hungry, scared of the wide world consisting of the other animals looking for something to feast on.
But, she survived.
Of course she is wondering who in the heck these other birds that look just like us are.
Funny thing though I think one is a bat bird. Cianna hangs upside down all the time.
Her boyfriend said he wasn’t giving up and he was bringing their baby home.
Like I said A Keeper.
