My birds know that I would do anything for them and that they can count on me to keep them safe, happy, and healthy. Well maybe they don’t know all that, but they do know to come to me for comfort when they’re scared or don’t feel well! #WhatMyBirdKnowsAboutMe #TheRoost

@wazzupzack & I sure do. She bounces EVERY idea off us! Her latest was three and a half years in the making. I came two years ago and helped with the last 2 books in the trilogy. I even stole the cover for my wallpaper. (And I do love aliens!)

My birds know when I walk by the door in the mornings that it’s me (not my BF) even though I could be tiptoeing , they start going off screaming 😂 or when I get that one day off of work and forget to cover them they know how to wake me up #whatmybirdsknowaboutme #Theroost

❤️Elvisbird❤️  @elvisbird_dean -Jun 22

Today marks 1 year since Elvis flew away. I miss him everyday. With his craziness and funny antics, he taught me to love and appreciate birds. He led me to Twitter where I found wonderful friends who love their birds as I do. #MyBirdTaughtMeTo

#MyBirdTaughtMeTo slow down and be present in the moment. There’s nothing like giving a bird a head skritch to pull one’s attention away from oneself and outward onto another living creature. No feeling sorry for oneself around a bird! #TheRoost @TheRoost10
