"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."

Frankly, of the two things I'd lose in a divorce, I'd rather keep the bush.

Nice story, I'm glad to hear the bird is back with someone who loves it.  
Similar thing happened to me, the ex took the cat and then threatened to have her put down, just to spite me.
I am lucky to have the cat now and a happy home and the selfish ex out of my life.

Oh, the last thing I gave her was the bird,
And she returned the favor with a few selected words.
I don't have to worry now what's being overheard,
'Cause the last thing I gave her was the bird.

she took your bird.  It's no longer in your pants.  You'll never get it back.

This is nothing special. I'm sure there's lots of exes who give each other the bird.

It wasn't all good for the bird though.

Good for him. Taking somebody's beloved pet is the height of dick moves, no matter how crappy your marriage was.

Most any parrots are awesome, but as for that woman that required medical attention after the bite; I bet that shiat was nasty. Macaws have huge powerful beaks. Only parrots I respect enough to not really want to own/handle long enough to risk pissing one off.

Huh... and I was getting the bird UNTIL I got divorced
 
2013-04-22 04:58:23 PM
There was a time in a previous career when I actually hand fed baby parrots.  One was an African Grey, the other was a Blu Nape Amazon.  They were both truly awesome birds.  The only problem was that both of those breeds tend to bond with one person.  It made it really difficult to sell them because they pretty much considered me their father.

The African Grey was particularly cool because of the range of sounds it could immitate.  There was one time that I heard the sounds of my boss coming in and unzipping his jacket.  I was surprised to turn around and find no one there but the bird.  That was freaky.

10 to 1 the bird was a major factor in them getting divorced.

Parrots are great pets - they're also extremely demanding pets and need someone able to devote a lot of time to them.   They also live a really, really long time - so unless you know what your living situation is going to be in 2060, you might want to stick with something less exotic.

I got the dog... and she got everything else. I'll have to say, it was a great trade to be rid of that woman once and for all.

Not the first time an ex-wife takes a pet out of spite and then gets rid of it.

Had a college buddy get divorced a few years after graduation.  She kept the dog.  The dog that he owned before he even met her.  Soon as the divorce was finalized she took it to the pound and claimed it was a stray.

Fortunately for him (and the dog), a friend of his works with a dog adoption charity and recognized the dog when he was there that day.

Or, if you want a parrot, get a smaller one. A Lovebird, Conure, or Budgie will not live as long as a Macaw, Cockatoo, or African Gray. They're still intelligent, social birds who need love and attention, but they're far less likely to outlive you.

/Plus, they're adorable.

The bird kept whistling "there goes the bride" as she walked out the door.

Glad the bird is back with its owner.  Considering how neurotic they can be when stuff changes (plucking, making themselves sick), I'm sure it's quite happy to be back with someone that knows its favorite things.  Anyway, this thread needs more cute parrots.

It wasn't George Jones. It was Jerry Reed.

A great novelty song from a great performer. As good a picker as Jerry Reed was, it's a shame that he's only remembered for his novelty songs.

However, I'm sure his bank account didn't mind. "When You're Hot You're Hot" probably bought several very nice guitars.

True, but if the person didn't lose a digit then the parrot wasn't really trying to inflict a wound.
Our fingers are made out of cardboard when it concerns the beak of those larger parrots.

CrimsonMeerkat: It wasn't George Jones. It was Jerry Reed.


Different song.  George Jones' "The Bird" is about a breakup that happened because a parrot squealed.  Jerry Reed's is about a con job.  Possum's seems a better fit for TFA.

They Might Be Giants. The album is Flood. It's referenced obliquely in a Mercedes Lackey novel, strangely, which is where I discovered them.

Well, the first few years weren't all that bad.
