What Did You Say?

One reason people want parrots is that they love the idea of a talking bird. To me, this means they don’t know enough about parrots, they will get frustrated quickly, and the poor creature will end up being rehomed early on. I try to educate people about the situation, but most don’t think I know what I am talking about. Continue reading

Spring Baby Boom

Southern California is wonderful for keeping birds because Spring arrives a bit earlier than elsewhere in the country. My birds know it’s a good time to start raising babies. I love the fact that I am providing lots of sweet companion birds for people who love small parrots. Continue reading

Nursery News

Watch this space for a new adventure in hand feeding tiny parrots. That’s right, parakeets, or budgies, are actually small parrots, as are lovebird and cockatiels.

Mine are light reads, I think. Nothing that would cause anyone to stop and ponder life. But Ms. Dare did mention in a talk I heard that when she doesn’t have time to write a blog post, she just links to her favorite cute cat videos. Continue reading
