    We met when he was still in the nest.  I hand-reared him, taught him tricks & things to say.

    He always said 'Hello Darling' in a whisper to me every morning as he knew I hated loud noises.  He said 'that's nice' when given a treat.  'What are you doing', 'Goodnight' and many more.  I taught him to ring his bell and to do other tricks. 

    I loved him so very much, now he is gone, died on New Years Eve but I had a feeling it might be the end, I stroked him all evening and tickled his cheeks, and he sat on my hand.  In the morning he was gone.  30 years is a long, long, time to love a parrot so fly to Rainbow Bridge my 'Darling', I will never forget you my precious Conure.

    Darling was a lucky boy to be so loved, and to end his days knowing that. He was also very lucky to have you for all of his life. Well done you, and maybe in time you can give the same love and stability to another little soul who needs a second chance.

    Welcome to BL by the way.

    So sorry regarding your loss. It is obvious he/she was a very lucky bird to have known such a loving caring home for all his life. You don't say what kind of conure Darling was but generally 30 is a very good innings for one, the smaller ones have a shorter lifespan. I know what a deep void they leave as I have lost 2 dearly loved conures in 2012 - one around Darlings age.

    Fly free and happy little one above Rainbow Bridge until you are both reunited.

    Thinking of you.
