Trixie Red Bum: a love to last forever

Trixie

Love has grey feathers, a mischievous glint in expressive eyes, and a beautiful heart and soul.  Love has a name, Trixie.  You left mom way too soon Trixie.

A few months ago, Trixie left her mom Tracy’s side to fly to the Rainbow Bridge, leaving mom and countless Anipals devastated and heartbroken.  The photos and videos that follow are a tribute to Trixie, a beautiful girl who will forever hold a permanent place in her mom’s heart and soul.  You are so dearly missed every day Trixie.

This is a tribute to you sweet Trixie Red Bum, a feathered star that shone bright and beautifully in our hearts for a while, but was called to the heavens to watch over mommy Tracy and your flock much too soon.

Gone, but never forgotten

Forever and for always Trixie, mom loves you.  You may be gone from this Earth, but you will never leave her heart and soul.

Love you forever Trixie
Mommy Tracy

Morty is full of hot air – Turbo Jet (Vacuum) Air!

Greetings to all my favorite parrot friends! Alexa is in a mood after she rolled under the couch. She blames me for her clumsiness! Good help is hard to find these days!

Recently, I received an interesting letter from a parrot owner.

Dear Morty,

I live in a three bedroom home and have ten parrots. I work 12 hour shifts and when I get home I am too tired to clean. It seems like every bird has the habit of throwing their fruit, veggies, seed, and pellets on the floor! When I go into their room at night, it is a filthy mess. I cant even get near their cages! Is there anything on the market that could help me? PLEASE DON’T TELL ME TO GET A VACUUM CLEANER! I have three. I am looking for a piece of industrial equipment. Price is not a problem.

Messy House

Beneath the Cage Grate: Dear Messy House

Morty is challenged to adequately respond to a letter from a stressed-out parront who’s trying desperately to keep up with the mess caused by their determined food-flinging flock!

Welcome Ruby!

A baby red factor African Grey birdie entered the lives of Oscar and her mom Pauline recently.  While Pauline doted over the wee one for days and weeks (to Oscar’s dismay), the Twitter and Facebook flock waited with bated breath for pictures – and of course the announcement of the name of this little cutie.

After a few weeks of naming deliberations and anxious online excitement, we were introduced to Ruby!  Welcome Ruby!

Here’s baby Ruby as an upstart 🙂

Ruby finding her feet and showing off her little red feathers.

Ruby demonstrates to mom and all that she’s becoming a big birdie, learning to climb and perch!

Ruby joins her flock in the living room, enjoying the comfort of her blankie while Oscar keeps a watchful eye over her.

And last, but not least, the one photo to be used on Ruby’s 16th Hatchday – probably at her prom party 🙂

We’re so happy to welcome you into our social media flock Ruby!  You’re going to be causing havoc with Oscar and Keito in no time!

No Assembly Required?

Morty

Morty solicits Alexa’s help to purchase what he thought would be a lovely playpen he could enjoy on his back deck.  Well, let’s just say that what the UPS man delivered wasn’t what Morty had ordered… or planned.

Read Morty’s latest adventure here – and be prepared for ‘some assembly required’!

Bird Games

Sherri

In the wild, birds instinctively play, finding fun and amusement in their natural environment.  Our companion feathered friends don’t have to seek out wild fun since we humans provide for all their needs.

So, what do birdies do with their pent up energy?  Read Sherri’s full article here to learn how Zack and Bubbles devise fun games to keep themselves amused and, most importantly, keep their parronts on their toes!
