The welcome home screams invited me into the offices of Doctors Zack and Bubbles, ready to begin their official duties as listeners and comforters of human sorrows after a hard day at work.
“What am I going to do?” I asked, as I plopped in my recliner. “The phones won’t stop ringing. The emails are constant. The mail weeps with the death of a forest every day. The computers crash, the copiers and scanners jam, and the people! It’s questions, complaints, problems, and misdirected calls all day long. How can I do this until retirement?”
Find out what Doctors Zack and Bubbles prescribe for their most important patient, mom, on the Feathered Frenzy page.

Grab a pencil, make a cup of tea and enjoy some Parrot Search-A-Word fun on our Feather Fun page.
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!
Head on over to News on the Wing to read some interesting tweets and articles about birds that we’ve gathered over the last few weeks.

Chloe Moorer, of Columbia, SC, passed away after an accident on December 2, 2017. Born in 2003 in Florida, she was moved to Parrot Mountain and Gardens in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where she was lovingly adopted on May 20, 2010 and moved to Columbia, SC, with her new flock.
Chloe was a sweetheart and a beauty queen. She loved hanging out with mommy, sitting on the porch, playing on her play gym, holidays, celebrations, visiting family and friends, interacting with her friends on Twitter and at the ConureCorner website and blog, and sticking her nose into whatever her flock was doing. Chloe was an avid fan of the University of South Carolina, the University of Tennessee, Bruce Lee, Superman, and most of all, Captain America. She enjoyed giving kisses to her mommy and grand-mommy, drinking daddy’s juice, eating good food, a rousing mystery, listening to mommy’s stories and ideas for novels, and looking her best. Chloe starred in several Anipal Land stories on the ConureCorner blog, alongside her Twitter pals, as a Kung-fu master who helped to save the day.
Chloe is survived by her parronts, Rick and Sherri Moorer; her brother, Zacchaeus (Zack, a sun conure on Twitter as @wazzupzack); and her sister, Bubbles (a blue Moncks Parakeet, on Twitter as @CaptainBubbs). She was pre-deceased by a brother, Oliver (Ollie, a green budgie who passed of cancer in 2014).
Chloe was a kind and generous bird, and a great listener. She is greatly loved and missed.
