Is there a birb anywhere that doesn’t love hiding, chewing, and playing in a cardboard box? I don’t think so!
In our November issue of It’s A Birb Thing, Cheeks demonstrates just how much fun one birdie can have in her own personal cardboard box!
Go Cheeks Go!
To clip or not to clip. That is the question.
Sherri’s November Feathered Frenzy column provides readers with a well rounded overview of the controversies and practicalities of wing clipping for our feathered companions.
We all want our companion birds to be safe. But we also want them to feel confident and happy in their feathers. Wing clipping plays a huge role in how our fids interact with and explore their surroundings.
For an in-depth look at wing clipping and how best to approach it with your fids, catch up with Sherri in this month’s Feathered Frenzy!
Morty’s latest Beneath the Cage Grate column finds him wondering about the status of a flock of African Grey parrots in Lincolnshire Park who recently added some shock ‘n awe to their adoring onlookers by sharing some rather off-color language. In his November column, Morty tries to track these characters down to see how they’re faring since their ‘relocation’ due to bad behavior.
While bemusing the antics of his Grey cousins, Morty is at the same time somewhat enjoying the ongoing shenanigans of his crazy bot housemates. Alexa and Roomba are determined to apprehend the tomato thief that continues to terrorize the garden patch, but their detective skills and actions leave Morty both laughing and also trying to defend himself to mum against unfounded accusations of complicity.
A must read!
Everyone who lives with a parrot knows that if you’re not in sight, your feathered companion will do whatever it takes to get your attention. Cheeks doesn’t like it when her human leaves her alone and goes out. She waits and waits and waits (kinda patiently but not so much) for her mommy to get home.
See Cheeks’ reaction when no one answers her call in the August issue of It’s A Birb Thing.
It’s hard to accept, but sometimes we’re not our bird’s favorite human. Often, with more than one person in a household, companion birds choose one person who they like best, bonding with that individual in a strong, special way.
This doesn’t mean the ‘second favorite’ person isn’t liked, it’s just that the bond isn’t as strong.
But, there are ways to ingratiate yourself and become their close-to-favorite person. Sherri’s August Feathered Frenzy article provides tips on how to build trust and show that you respect that while you may not be their favorite human, you do love them and want to part of their cherished flock.
Morty’s latest escapade takes him on a mission to right the wrongs perpetrated by an errant little Goldfinch who’s wreaking havoc in mum’s garden.
Morty confronts this pipsqueak and demands it refrain from damaging any more of mum’s beloved plants.
However, Bratbird’s reaction to Morty’s plea only inflates his feathers! See how Morty deals with this little upstart in the August issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.

Back to the archives for today’s post. I was looking/listening to bird calls on YouTube late last night and came across one that highlighted 10 of the most beautiful cockatoos in the world and was surprised to discover that 8 of them came from Australia. It reminded me of the Galahs I have seen in […]
