Hello Talk Budgie's friend's. Today is July 1ST and it is time to announce the Staff selection for MOTM. Pull up a chair, and listen up, this month's selection is a historical event for the forum, and I will soon tell you why.
The easiest way to describe this month's MOTM would be to cut and paste the "Insight into MOTM" Sticky from the top of this section, but I am going to give you the descriptive hint's that will have most of you guessing who it is before I even say....
Any of you that have joined here in the last four year's, were more than likely given a very warm welcome by this MOTM, because this member rarely misses a new arrival to the forum. You may have had a gender question on one of your new bird's, and this MOTM was there to give you an answer, which if my memory serves me right, turn's out to be correct 99.999% percent of the time. Did you have a question on your bird's mutation ? No doubt you got help in that area from this same member.
Breeding problem's, and questions... behavioral issue's...I could go on and on, because this member touches every part of our forum with great amount's of experience, and expertise that is kindly, and unselfishly shared to benefit all of us, and our pet bird's. I am sure a lot of you already have an Idea who I am about to announce, but I will give you just a bit more first
This MOTM joined the forum in July of 2011. Hailing from the land of Portugal, with her flock of 14, and sweet dog Elvis. She can bust a mean rap, and thrill's us with the adventures of a love bird named Khaleesi. She has been awarded a "Distinguished Service Award" here for her good work, was the November 2013 Member of the Month, and makes Talk Budgies History today as the first person to ever be awarded MOTM for a second time. It bring's me a great deal of satisfaction, and joy to show this small token of our appreciation for her great work, and friendship toward's us all. Please join me in congratulating July 2015 Member of the Month...........
Congratulation's my friend....as a small token of our appreciation you will receive.....

He came down from Heaven unto this earth below
He came down from glory and praises untold
He came down to man fashioned in their way
He came down to rescue, He came down to save
Oh my, this has completely caught me off guard, I can hardly believe it!
It is an honour to me to be part of such a wonderful community and I feel blessed to have found in Talk Budgies good friends from all corners of the world who share the same passion for pet birds and other animals in general.
As a person who was bullied as child in school due to loving, showing concern and talking about my birds, of growing up being misunderstood by people in general whenever the topic was animal companions, I have found in Talk Budgies my safe haven and second family and it is a privilege to me to contribute and be an active member of the forums.
My big thank you to the staff for this recognition... I'm stunned and words aren't coming easily.
If possible I'd like to keep the present colour of my special award and the title beneath it as well. Thank you!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Many, many congratulations, Ana! You are definitely a huge asset to this community and you're one of the people who holds up this forum.
More times than not, I find myself simply typing "I agree with Aluz" as you always offer the thorough and clear advice, knowledgable experience, and wonderful information that makes this forum what it is.
Very well deserved indeed, keep doing what you do best!
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
