Some of you may have watched the recent show aired on PBS, “Parrot Confidential.” For some it was the first time they saw into the world that is “Avian.” For others, it merely confirmed, in some ways, the current plight of the domestic and wild parrot population. I have been fortunate to share my home with an Umbrella Cockatoo for 12 years. I was one that plunged into the world that is “Parrot” with […]
I am departing from my normal photo blog format to speak out about a topic I am seriously passionate about! I hope you enjoy it, and take time to meet some of the people I have met along the way and admire for their passion. “The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any […]
What an honor to be a part of a worthy cause! A group of determined people wanted to help The Parrot Posse saddle up for the next ride! What did they do? Well, thanks to the magnificent art and skills of Diane McKinney, The Posse was able to auction off a magnificent quilt! My awesome Umbrella Cockatoo (Ze’, named after an awesome Bar in Buzios, Brazil, the Bar dos Ze; http://www.lonelyplanet.com/brazil/the-southeast/buzios/restaurants/other/bar-do-ze) was honored as the official […]
Imagine, if you would, one petite lady, Judith Archer, and her band of merry parrot crusaders making this world a better place for the multitude of parrots abandoned, neglected, abused, lost and alone! Judith Archer has dedicated her life to helping parrots in need. Many of you do not realize the plight these magnificent parrots are in. So many people have taken in these parrots without the education and understanding of what it takes […]
Recently, I experienced my first major Facebook encounter of a “not so nice” nature. My words were misconstrued, as well as my intent. I can’t really say how or why it happened, but it centered on my major passion, which is my love of parrots. Few people realize the crisis that is going on in the avian community. Literally there are hundreds of thousands of parrots needing rescue, a new home, or a safe […]
A Favor and a Vote For Small Business. This is why I do what I do……because of people like Rebecca Stockslager, Bonnie’s Birds and a cast of 1000’s. Please help us help her win! I thank you and the countless birds that have been “saved” through the good work done at Bonnie’s Birds thanks you…..
Actually, it takes someone like Emily Trimnal (www.theroamingparrot.com), and Miss Vicki Knox LeClaire (http://www.parrotvillage.org/) to change the life of one sweet Umbrella Cockatoo. Thanks to the quick action of both women, Sebastian has a fighting chance. Sadly, there are so many that are completely oblivious to the issues surround avian abuse and neglect. It is often difficult, if not impossible to impress “authorities” the urgency of situations involving avian abuse and neglect. I will not stop […]
