SCARED OF THE RAVEN (Nevermore).
The most engaging bird I’ve ever met was “Cindy”, a rescue raven who lived with a family friend. Wemet when Iwas about 10—I had recently read “TheRaven’ in school and had my doubts, but Cindywonme over. Not onlywas she extremely intelligent but shewas also very playful, andwas happiest when serving as an “Animal Ambassador” at schools and youth clubs. If the children didn’t move quickly
enough to greet her, she would run over to them to make the introduction. She also had a very good vocabulary and was able to say things like “hello”, “pardon me” and “permesso” (somewhere along the way, she’d learned some Italian). I’d never had a pet – my sister’s allergies had precluded it – but Cindy certainly filled the void. Thanks to her, I became very interested in birds, and it’s an interest that continues to this day.

MARK’S DUCK TALE
I love ducks. Above the water, no matter how fast they are swimming they show a calm stillness. They are also team players as evidenced watching them fly in formation. However, I love them most because as a child my dad and I used to watch them in Camaan’s Pond every Sunday morning before he took me for
chocolate chip pancakes. Ducks make me happy.
ED’S SUMMER COMPANIONS Common L oon
I am a member of the Garnet Hill Property Owners Association. We are stewards of 650 acres that include pristine woods that abut Thirteenth Lake in the Adirondacks. Thirteenth Lake falls within the New York State designated 114,000- acre Siamese Ponds Wilderness Area of the Adirondack Forest Preserve.
Each spring we welcome back the loons for another season on Thirteenth Lake, and we listen for their calls across the lake. Many kayak trips are highlighted by paddling parallel to these seasonal visitors. A few years ago, GHPOA was instrumental in eliminating gas motors from the lake, allowing the lake to remain a pristine home to these loons. It’s not summer until you hear their calls echo across the lake.

ELYSE’S FIRST bird LOVE Y ellow-Crowned A mazon When I was about 3 years old a yellow- crowned Amazon parrot flew into my grandparents’ home in Berbice, Guyana and landed on my father’s shoulder. My cousins fed the parrot and he, of course, refused to leave. My father decided that he would bring the bird back to the United States as a pet for me and my 4 siblings. The parrot repeatedly said “Robert”, which we named him. Whenever we came home from school Robert would greet us at the door singing “Hello, hello, hello”.

He would then climb onto my shoulder and watch as I did my homework. Robert was an incredible pet who went everywhere we went, repeated everything at the appropriate time and even did not mind when we dressed him up for Halloween. My love of the yellow-crowned Amazon started with Robert and I hope to own another parrot in the future.
