In this month’s edition of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri explores the reality (for her and many of us) of having our parrots go from avian companions to avian coworkers.
Sherri’s experience of working from home with Bubbles and Zack riding shotgun on conference calls may very well echo and mirror readers’ experiences too.

In this month’s Beneath The Cage Grate edition, Morty crafts a mischievous response to South Carolina’ pals Zack and Bubbles in their plea for help dealing with their own out-of-control artificial intelligence issues.

It’s amazing how birds, like people, can be introverts or extroverts, and every bird seems to be quite in tune with their personality and their interactions with fellow human and birdie housemates. In February’s issue of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri identifies some important issues regarding how matchmaking and our feathered companions can be an exercise in luck – and something often more challenging.
Sherri talks about how feisty Bubbles burst onto the scene in 2016 and took Zack and Chloe by storm (and shock).
This photo of Bubbles and Chloe, taken moments after they first met, tells the tale perfectly. Bubbles looks relieved to have a home and Chloe looks shocked by this blue interloper!

It’s officially the 2020’s and Sherri and the birdies are trying to tie a neat little bow on the Christmas just past and return to some degree of normalcy to begin the new decade.
But alas, normalcy is hard to achieve, especially after a couple of weeks of rushing around, decorating, wrapping and then opening presents, and the prep and clean ups from big dinners and visitors.
How do you and your flock return to your ‘normal’ after the holiday season? Catch up with Zack and Bubbles here to find out how they’re trying to resume their routines after a festive but hectic Christmas.
Sherri’s October Feathered Frenzy article finds her pondering how everyone – humans, companion birds and wildlife, acknowledge and react to the changing seasons.
She notes that like people, both Zack and Bubbles recognize the changing seasons, with Zack paying particular attention to his parronts’ changing eating habits, clothing choices and house decorations as Fall’s approaches.
Understanding how our companion birds react to seasonal changes occurring around them helps us parronts appreciate our feathered kids’ intelligence, keen senses and intuitive nature.

Sherri’s latest Feathered Frenzy article delves into the intelligence and perceptiveness of our parrot companions.
When someone says ‘bird brain’, they are actually describing a sentient being that can, and does, interact and react to their human and environmental surroundings in a way that is very similar to humans.
Sherri describes how Zack and Bubbles continually surprise and reassure her that they understand hers and hubby Rick’s struggles with life’s challenges – both in and outside the house.
Sherri’s article is a must-read for everyone living with a feathered companion.
Anybody who believes that birds don’t have a personality have obviously never had one. It doesn’t take long to see that these extremely intelligent creatures are aware of what’s going on around them. – Sherri Moorer
Sherri’s June Feathered Frenzy submission delves into the mysteries and wonders of parrot personality. What motivates, invigorates and maddens our birds is important for all parronts to understand, acknowledge and address.
Read how Sherri rewards and celebrates the distinctly different yet equally wonderful personalities of Bubbles and Zack in this month’s Feathered Frenzy article.
In 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.
