Harmony is a yellow-nape amazon parrot, who was rescued by Vanessa (Rescue Center Costa Rica) and Valentina (Parrott Rescue CR).
Valentina received an anonymous call one evening from a neighbor who reported the beautiful bird was being kept in a very small cage (16 inches) and was being mistreated by a lady in the home next door. The parrot had been kept in that cage for over 15 years and was fed a diet of coffee and bread.
Needless to say, she was malnourished and suffered from an enlarged heart and had severe liver problems. Vanessa and Valentina went into action the following day and approached the home with the hopes of convincing the lady to allow them to take her to the Parrot Rescue CR to medicate her and get her on a proper diet...to bring her back to health.
A promise was also made that if the woman agreed she was welcome to come and visit at any time. However, the lady went into hysterics and refused to allow the bird to be removed from the home. She said she preferred to kill the animal rather than give it up.
Vanessa has dealt with this before and worked to calm the lady down and speak in a reasonable manner. In the end the lady was very upset but did agree to release the animal into the care of Vanessa and Valentina. Once the parrot was back in the vet hospital and x-rays were completed, she was administered a proper diet high in green vegetables and plenty of sunshine and fresh air.
It took a few weeks but she made a full recovery and is healthy and happy with many new feathered friends at Rescue Center Costa Rica.
