Adeline made a new friend at Butterfly Gardens and now she's OBSESSED with going back. Little E is an eclectus parrot that is free to roam in the garden, but who often chooses to interact with people and he's especially fond of women - before his rescue and retirement to Butterfly Gardens he likely didn't know any men, as he doesn't like to get as close to them. We found Little E near a quiet out-of-the-way bench and Adeline sat a few feet away from him. He got closer and closer as they chatted and flirted with each other for about 30 minutes, until we finally were able to drag Adeline away. She immediately came home and drew a portrait of Little E and started making plans for when they can be together again. I totally get it. She feels like she had a real MOMENT with an animal who was as interested in her as she was in him, and that's powerful. We'll take Adeline back soon - hopefully Little E will be just as happy to see her as she is to see him!
