Nathan splish, slash he is loving his bath! He is doing great! He has a cage mate now that he might be mates with but not totally sure yet. It would be nice for him to have a mate to go to his forever home with. So we are hoping for a love dove connection. Special thanks to and follow @allmyrescuedbirds for rehabbing/saving Nathan and hundreds of other birds. If you'd like to help her and or the pidgeilantes with birdseed please donate to my venmo acct. Pidgeilante..

On the Marquee 🎥:
Feature film: “The Swamp” — Nature Never Surrenders (2019, 120 minutes) tells the sweeping story of humanity’s attempts to conquer the Florida Everglades, one of nature’s most mysterious ecosystems. Home to a profusion of unique flora and fauna found together nowhere else on the continent, the immense watershed once covered nearly all of Florida's southern peninsula. In the late 19th century, however, wetlands were largely perceived as impediments to progress, impenetrable swamps inhabited by dangerous reptiles. Draining much of the Everglades was a feat accomplished by the Army Corp of Engineers. Radically altering the landscape in favor of development unleashed a torrent of unintended consequences — including floods, droughts, habitat loss, collapsing rookeries and fisheries, and species teetering on the brink of extinction. The critically acclaimed film retells this epic real-life drama through the lives of a handful of colorful characters, hucksters, politicians and unlikely activists. Both captivating and compelling, The Swamp brings viewers full circle to the present as state and federal agencies work closely with Everglades advocates to save America’s greatest wetland by restring the flow of water south.

A long overdue update on this little birdbrain. He’s still quite vocal and screechy. He is still struggling to catch onto this foraging business. If the foraging toy or activity requires much thought or effort, he gives up. BUT he is starting to eat more and more veggies and has lost 4 grams! Although he still looks chonky to me, his auntie (my friend), who happens to be his babysitter and veterinarian, says he looks amazingly better compared to when he came to me in December. He’s stronger, his plumage is brighter and shinier with less flakes, and his demeanor has changed. A good diet can do wonders! But let’s talk about the best part! THIS BIRD IS COMING OUT OF HIS CAGE! 👏🏻👏🏻 He has spent his entire life (6 years) in a small cage. This is huge for him to leave his safe place. He doesn’t stay out for hours, and tends to stick close to his area, but who cares! He’s getting comfortable with open space. He’s getting comfortable with taking a treat from my hand outside of the bars. He enjoys sitting on top of his cage looking out the window. When he goes for a stroll, he will flutter (ahem, drop ⚓️) down, and then we use a laundry rack as a makeshift ladder for him to get up since his muscles are atrophied and he cannot fly. But that’s the other fantastic part! He’s been practicing! He couldn’t get lift at all in February. Now he can clumsily fly from the floor to the dresser his cage sits on. 🚀 It’s amazing how far he’s come in 6 months. He’s definitely less...erm...cerebral than Ziggy bird, but the derp is part of his charm. 😊 Hope you enjoy some glimpses of Mr. Paris. Sorry for the dark videos/photos. He decides to come out when I least expect it and don’t have the lights on the other side of the room on. I just leave his door open for him to decide what to do. Sometimes he comes out in 5 minutes, others he comes out after 2 hours. Also, volume up for the video of him walking on the floor. The pitter patter of his little feet are everything. 😄💕🦜
