Parrots Aren’t the Only Birds That Talk…

We already knew that birds are incredible mimics, but did you know that starlings can talk? A kindy teacher in New Zealand rescued a fallen baby starling when she was on a walk, but it's almost certain that she never expected what came next... You can watch the full video (including lots of Buddy the... Continue Reading →

I’m In the Newspaper – Future Avian Rescue.

If you've been keeping up with my blog, you know of my hopes of founding a parrot sanctuary here in the states. Well... I got interviewed about it. 😀 They got some facts quite wrong (e.g. Bobo and Mishka got swapped there), but the paper got the gist of it, and that's what matters.Because it... Continue Reading →

Koko the Invisible.

Let's give blogging via the mobile app a try. I've found out today that Phoenix Landing Parrot Rescue has a seminar near where I live in Maryland on the 28th, so I'm going to go. Step one towards starting my own organisation, I guess! Maybe I can get involved in education through them - which... Continue Reading →

Home.

I am home. Maryland. I don't know what to do without the birds making their constant demands... What is this, this thing called free time? Aren't parrot-less people bored all the time? Anyway, I promise there will be a further update soon. Fingers crossed the birdies' paperwork goes through soon! I have brand-new cages for... Continue Reading →

Days 23-25 – Dream Birds, Sleep, and Memories.

I realised most of the way through this challenge that I cut out day number 21 when the challenge image was moved into column format! Whoops. I can't remember what it even was, so I guess I'll make something up. Day 23: Dream bird? My list is endless, really, haha. I love them all. Truly,... Continue Reading →

Day 21 – All About Perches.

I'm running quite behind on these - so much for encouraging me to blog every day. To be fair, I've been busily preparing forms and paperwork and scouring the Internet for any information on importing pet birds. I think I have all sent the papers out now, but every time I say that I discover... Continue Reading →

New Blog Theme – What Do You Think?

Hmm, I've decided that I need to interject a little more colour into my blog. What do you think of the theme? It feels like I've only just changed it, but I stumbled across this on my WordPress reader and quite liked it! I'm definitely a black and white kind of girl, so choosing a... Continue Reading →

Days 16-19 – Survival Tips for Life With Parrots (And More).

Day 16: The meaning behind my blog's name. Ha! Well, I had no idea what to name it at the time, despite having had the idea for the blog itself for ages. I'm a student - or was, then, anyway - and have birds. Yup. Somehow, when it comes to making a decision like a... Continue Reading →

Day 15 – If My Birds Won the Lottery.

Day 15: If my birds won the lottery. If my birds won the lottery and had a comprehension of spending the money themselves, I should like to think they'd pay for their own flights and quarantine! Hah, but no, they would spend everything on food and toys. Ptak would replace his share with hemp seed,... Continue Reading →

Day 14 – What’s On My Bird’s Bucket Lists.

For this one, I think I can safely make  a group bucket list, as the flock's' interests happen to be suspiciously similar. A top-five countdown (from least to most important) includes: Chew the couch without getting caught. Chew the door frame. Eat the human's food. Chew the lampshade. Eat more of the human's food. These... Continue Reading →
