I am Sarah, animal lover and parrot welfare advocate. This blog focusses on avian diet, nutrition, and welfare, taming and training tips, enrichment, parrot news, controversial issues, plus other stories and facts about pet birds. I’m not a professional (well, not exactly – I worked as a horse trainer and pro dog-walker for a number of years). But I am someone who has – in my own quest to learn all I can – amassed a lot of research on both animal training and parrot care.
Formerly, this blog was known as Students with Birds. I am no longer a student, however, and my life is no longer run solely by the birds (much as I’m sure they wish otherwise). Our new name reflects this: Three Birds and a Cloud; our goal to share all I’ve learnt remains the same.
The flock consists of three, at the moment: parrotlets Ptak and Tayir, and Senegal Parrot Maverick. You can read more about them on The Flock page. We also have rats, a cat, a cloud (Samoyed, yes), and the best dwarf hamster known to man. It’s a zoo in here!
