About Elwood and Dicha

Elwood Blues is a second generation captive hatch who was parent-reared at Houston
Zoo. His father is the son of BE Founder Pair #2 (Prophecy and Fantasy). His mother was raised by a wild-caught pair at
St. Catherine's. Elwood hatched Feb. 11, 2000, and was their first offspring. The acquisition of Elwood was facilitated by support from
Ark-La-Tex Caged Bird Club of Shreveport, LA. He moved into our flock in May 2001.

Dicha (which means happiness and good luck in Spanish) is a first generation female raised by BE Founder Pair #1 (Ira and
Eureka). She hatched on June 4, 1997. Along with clutchmate Xena, she remained with the parents as a family unit for almost a year.

Elwood and Dicha selected each other while in the flock during 2001. In 2002 they moved into their own habitat.
