Is There A Happy Life For Our Parrots After Our Deaths?

According to the pundits, the only certain thing in life is that we will all die. Whether you believe in an afterlife or not, the hereafter comes to an end. If you’ve read prior articles, you’ll notice that the concept of our own life ending is constantly referred to as a ‘tough issue.’

I don’t believe it’s so much about the end of our own life as it is about the ends we have to see throughout our lives. We watch helplessly as our parents, siblings, and, sadly, children are taken from this world, always before we are ready to say goodbye.

Then there are others who have been left behind. Are they prepared to cope with life once we leave? We do our best to prepare our children for the ups and downs of life, the roller coaster of ecstasies and anguish punctuated with fortunate routine. And they, our human problem, our sisters and brothers, maybe even our parents, have an anthropological support system in a society oriented around mankind at the top of the food chain.

But what about the nonhumans we leave behind? As someone who has parrot companions, you’d think this is a topic on which I’ve had numerous internal debates. Given that I’m already in my forties, some of my flock may outlast me. What options do I have to guarantee that they are safe, happy, and loved? There are, of course, no promises. No matter how well we plan for the care of our avian friends after we die, there is no certainty that what we hope to happen in their avian lives will really happen.

We are aware that there are sanctuaries where parrots are presumably maintained until they die. But I wonder whether a parrot trained as a human friend may be comfortable with less human engagement and more avian company. For any sort of a reasonable explanation, I’d have to look at each member of my flock. The macaws, amazons, pionus, and conures have strong personalities. They like their person’s attention, although they are not as dependent as other feathered species. That takes me back to my darling, demanding umbrella cockatoo. Yes, this is the “tough issue” that plagues me when confronted with my own death. How can this lovely, trusting, cuddly bundle of white, feathery affection endure the separation?

I merely needed to peek at the residents of the local parrot refuge. There are a plethora of cockatoos in residence. They are the plucked, mistreated, and abandoned, those who were left behind after their beloved human died. And they’re happy because they’re behaving like BIRDS, members of a flock with whom they can actually converse. So, although I still worry about my flock’s happiness when I’m gone, I know that there are alternatives for them that, while not ensuring their pleasure, will offer them with the possibility to live a life much less terrible than my active imagination can imagine.

While parrot sanctuaries are one choice for caring for one’s cherished parrot friend, they are far from the sole one. I know of pet owners who have carefully prepared their children or grandkids to care for their pets after they die. It gives me comfort to know that my parrots may still be beloved members of my family, even without my presence. Will hearing my Orange Wing Amazon chortling with my foolish laugh provide consolation to my relatives? It’s a bit of me that won’t be forgotten, and it’s a joyful sound to be remembered by.

Consider how your parrots will live once you are gone. I realize it’s not easy, but with knowledge, intuition, and love, you can make choices that will benefit your avian charges in the long run.
