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 →

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 →

Mishka makes camera noises when she wants her photo taken. 3. We think she likes the camera because it means... Continue Reading →

A Bird Blogging Challenge To Myself.

So, I've been thinking about blog posts I can do in the future... I like a balance between sharing adorable/funny/vaguely interesting birdie stories, and putting up some more informational posts (which bring in the Google hits, haha). In all of this, I realised I could do a weekly topic of discussion. The time I'll be... Continue Reading →
