Why I Love Parrots as Companion Animals

Parrots may not make good pets, but I was thinking about this: There are endless reasons why I love them anyway. I'd never give my birds up if I had any kind of a choice! It takes a saint-like amount of patience to live with one...as well as an immunity to mess, noise, and waste...yet... Continue Reading →

Bobo the Umbrella Cockatoo Update.

I apologise for being so horribly, horribly lax with my posts - I've been a bit glum, I admit, as I'm leaving Scotland very soon. Didn't want to moan too much. I have lots of posts to come, and will of course finish my blog challenge! In the meantime, enjoy a clip of our Bobo... Continue Reading →

Days 9-11 – Parrots Have Bad Habits.

Day 9: Worst habit. You might think 'worst habit' and 'parrot' would automatically equal something along the lines of chewing, biting, etc., but all that is really only a fact of life. (That's not to say sometimes I don't wish parrots were less voracious chewers!) Ptak's worst habit is getting underfoot. The little monster likes... Continue Reading →

On Re-Homing a Bird: Five Becomes Four.

O. and I visited the Island Parrot Sanctuary on Kerrera yesterday with three lovely ladies. It was a fantastic trip. Even the weather held up! As we came in, it was cloudy and a bit cool. Then it warmed up as the sun came out. And... Truly... Clouds or no, Kerrera is a place you... Continue Reading →

First Challenge, and a Funny Video.

Let's just say that I knew from reading that site that it's no easy path with a 'too in the house. I feel it's a message worth repeating again and again. And, okay, 'not an easy path' is a huge understatement. It is... Continue Reading →

Cockatoo Cuddles.

Cockatoo cuddles are known for being unlike most parrots' cuddles. They're very... well, forceful... and very sweet. There's something quite adorable about it. But I have a paranoia about keeping it 'PG,' so to speak. It's pretty difficult when this 24" bird pushes himself onto you with such insistence. You might guess that we lot... Continue Reading →

I’ll Hold Your Hand.

 I try not to post more than one thing in a day, but I had to share. What a cutie! 

Introducing Bobo, the Umbrella Cockatoo.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZcwq0GKnQI&feature=youtu.be I said to myself, 'No more new birds in the house...' And I especially said, 'No white cockatoos!' But then I met Bobo. So ::shuffle shuffle:: I guess this is his introductory post! His age is unknown, but he is definitely an adult. He spent two years locked in a greenhouse, although the time before...

Cockatoo (No Longer) Looking For a Good Home!
