So there are lots more birds that you might share your world with, and lots of groups on Facebook that have wonderful opportunities to share. I just want to say that my heart is aching for a woman whose husband is hours away from the end of his life due to cancer, and the Congo African Grey who is the man’s companion is aware of something changing. Her human is not awake very much, and she sits on her cage close to his bed, watching and watching. This touching part of life would never have come to my attention without the wonderful folks at African Grey Parrot Lovers. https://www.facebook.com/groups/AfricanGreyParrotLovers/?fref=nf
I have lots of plans for my lovebirds, and two of my pairs are in nest boxes right now. The violets have three chicks, which is really exciting. Lovebird Connection is for breeders and focuses on Fishers, but there are great photos and good information there. https://www.facebook.com/LovebirdConnection
The group known as Agapornis Passion is also about breeding, but a little more open instead of one breeder’s page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/agapornis.passion/ I am thinking of starting a page for lovebird companions, in my spare time.
The Macaw forum is a fairly new site, with a focus on rescue, breeding endangered types of macaws, and helping people find lost or stolen birds. Not a bad reason to be out there. https://www.facebook.com/pages/MacawForumcom/149259131753385 Macaw Breeders Association is another good source for information, but you would think not so much for sharing pet stories and photos. But breeders also love their birds, and share lots of great photos and fun stories. https://www.facebook.com/groups/macaw.breeders/
My husband and I love canaries, and there’s a pretty nice group on Facebook called Canary Breeders Wcbc. This is a friend rather than join page, and so far the few photos I have seen are really nice. https://www.facebook.com/canarybreeders.wcbc
If you love zebra finches, then you will love Zebra Finch Lovers. Breeders, of course, because I am one of the few people who have zeebs just because I like them. And there are photos of all the beautiful mutations available. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ZebraFinchLovers/
Again, if you have many parrot types, like I do, you want a group where you can share any photos of your beloved companions. For Love of Parrots https://www.facebook.com/groups/593106950808104/ is just such a group, for all parrots and lots of sharing of photos and adventures.
Don’t forget the birds all around you, and all over the world. For a great site to view amazing photos of all sorts of avian species, green bee eaters, red tailed hawks, ducks, gannets, even simple sparrows. Bird Watchers is a great group to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/globalbirdwatchers/
Happy joining and viewing, sharing and commenting. I’ll be back on Thursday.
