We have an ongoing wildlife rescue and release program here at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. But sometimes the process is a quick one, rather than a period where an animal needs extensive specialized care.
That was the case this week when a blue-headed parrot flew into the doors at Scott and Kat’s house. He hit his head and was in shock, unable to move. To use a “technical” term, he seemed a little loopy. It didn’t take long for him to start feeling better and stabilize. When Kat went to check on him a little later, he tried to bite her and clearly wanted nothing to do with her (which is a good thing). After a while he started to scream – an obvious way of letting everyone know that he wanted to leave. He was let go a little bit after his mishap, once he passed his neuro exam and seemed okay to fly. So it was a very speedy rescue and release indeed as he took off into the distance, probably telling the rest of his flock about the “terrible” things the humans did to him. 😉

🤣🤣🤣 I’ve said that about elephants who have their babies rescued from a 4” water through by human keepers, she most likely ran back to her herd with her soaking wet baby and began telling the girls how her baby was clinging on to the side of the wall as 2’ waves crashed over the baby and all she could do was scream for her little angel to hold on momma is trying to get her out when all of a sudden these men came running over to snatch her precious and just as they had the baby in their hands she charged them with every muscle, ever pound of strength and pinned them with her tusks making her baby fly up to the clouds and she gracefully caught her teensy beensy precious in mid-air with her trunk and one ear..then they ran straight home unharmed without a scratch😂😂😂
As I heard her telling everyone “her version”🤣😂

Awesome. I had a Blue Jay fly into my patio windows. I heard the thump & went to see what had happened. He was laying on the patio. I got a box, lifted him gently, spoke to him the whole time, gently placed him into the box & left to go into the house. I kept checking, then he was on my patio furniture looking at me. I spoke to him again, he came closer. The flew away, It was a heartwarming experience.

Good! His colouring is beautiful 🤩. That beak makes it look as if it’s smiling but probably not!
