Ahhhh that was a nice story actually.

Gosh all I got was the house, the dog, full custody of my daughter & my full retirement .
Makes me wish she would have escaped the mental ward with my bird. Rick

It's nice to know that the bird bit the woman......which is the reason she got rid of it.

First of all, this statement is false, I also have a greenwing that is the one that hides his head and plays peek-a-boo, and I did not leave this bird with him when I left him because he was found guilty of domestic assault and I was not the only one he took his temper out on so you can bet I was not about to leave any of my animals with him!!!...This real bird was placed into a very caring and loving home less than 2 years ago..and really, how can anyone say they are not certain if it is their bird or not, how can you possibly live and see the same bird everyday for 3 years and not know the bird, you could place me in a room full of scarlet macaw's and to this day I could still pick out the real bird, he is just covering his butt because he knows he lied and not only scammed but stole the bird from the sanctuary, that there tells you of his true character!!! Sob story my butt!!!

No technically the sanctuary believed his so called sob story, he also told them that I had sold the bird for drugs and that I am sitting in prison in New Mexico, HA..just goes to show the extreme this man will go to get what he wants, as soon as I contacted them and sent them the proof they needed that the bird wasn't who this individual claimed it was they contacted him and took the bird back, I sent them several pictures of the real bird, marriage certificate showing their was no divorce, vet records, and original adoption papers they then realized they had been scammed. I don't blame them, he lied to them, cheated them out of an adoption fee, they are a non profit organization and run their sanctuary on donations alone, and for this man to scam them like that is just wrong, so they took the bird back and you can bet they will never let this person adopt from them!

So, when are you getting relesed from jail? When you do, will you want the bird back?

I am the founder of the Sanctuary and I'm afraid everything the greenwingscarlet said above claiming Mr Taylor scammed us and lied to everyone is true. We did recover our bird thanks to greenwingscarlet's proof and Mr Taylors incident is being examined by the county attorneys. You don't scam a charity that is ran by volunteers. That clearly was fraud and Mr Taylor knew it!!!!!! Its a sad day when ppl lie just to steal a macaw!

But what is best for the bird?
If the bird loves him, and is happy with him, isn't that the ultimate goal?
