Alert: Sick Human!

bubbles 7-4-16In our April issue, Sherri reminds all who share their home and life with birds that when we get sick, our birds react in different, and often negative ways to our illness.  Sherri experienced a very nasty bout with two viruses over a few weeks and as she recuperated, Sherri took notice of how her illness affected Bubbles in a more direct and somewhat serious way.  Zack on the other hand was attuned such human frailties and takes moms sicknesses in relatively good stride.

While diseases are rarely shared with humans, birds can definitely share nasty bugs with us!  Read Sherri’s Feathered Frenzy article here.
