Lei, that really was beautiful. I really like what you have to say regarding not expecting anything from him. Kudos to you for doing such a wonderful job with Jasper.

Well, I've had to rename Billie to Billy. The boys in the house said that I spelled it like a GIRLS name. *sigh* Ok, so his name is Billy. Fine. I don't think he'll see a difference <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> Yesterday Billy made noises to my husband, and when John mimiced him, he did it again... it lasted all of 5 minutes but PROGRESS people! Yes! He still won't play, dance or even move when John is in the room, but he is blinking and making the tiniest bit of noise, so we're happy. He does strike at my and my son's fingers/hands, so we'll just give him some more time before we even think of taking him out. I think he's doing great. He's exploring his cage a little, tearing up his toys, showing off for me, dancing to music, yelling at me in the morning (I got up at 6 for 5 days in a row, the 6th day I woke up to Billy yelling at 6:15) and I think these are all good behaviors, right? Oh, and the new avatar is the newest picture of Billy. We put it on with the other on the link I posted before. I need to figure out how to do a yahoo pictures page like you guys have.

I think this story is wonderful. Billy is a very lucky bird!! Just to let you know, I think patience, patience, patience, is the best way to proceed. My husband and I had our severe macaw for 5 years before he would let us hold him. Earning their confidence and trust takes time but when you do get it, it's worth the wait. Good luck to you and please keep us posted on your progress. Glenda
