So relax, catch up, and tell us what you think of The Roost! Have a great Sunday Everybirdie! October edition on the way soon!
Visit our News on the Wing page to catch up on birdie and nature-related issues and items retrieved from social media over the last few weeks. For example, read and follow the Tweet about the plight of the Swift Parrot:
Just over a year ago we lost two beautiful souls, Alice (Warden) and her beautiful Amazon Penne. The Roost thanks our close online flock, and especially Coco the Parrot, for forwarding so many wonderful pics to share with everyone in honour and remembrance of a lady and her birdie, both of whom brought much love, joy, silliness, and laughter to many, many lives.
Alice and Penne, you are missed so very much. Your candle will continue to burn bright in all of us forever and for always.
A rose, from Coco, to remember Alice.
If it weren’t for Alice and Penne, many of us (affectionately known as ‘Anipals’) would likely have never connected, so thank you Alice and Penne for bringing us all under your wing and into your loving embrace.
Here’s to you Penne and Warden, love you, always.
The silly and saucy side of Alice and Penne!
Penne, you are so loved, and so missed by your best friend Coco.
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!
Oscar’s dad used to launch eggs out of the nest box so fast that it took me a long time – and several failed attempts, to finally rescue one.
After incubating Oscar’s egg, the fun began! During hatching, Oscar had a job breaking out of her shell. After 55 hours of struggle, and me and hubby taking shifts to sit with her and gently chip little bits of shell away, Oscar finally broke completely free of her shell, and entered our world and lives as a wee, pink little baby!
Hand-rearing proved difficult too as Oscar’s crop wouldn’t empty, but we got there in the end. Oscar is now a beautiful 6-year old treasure that’s just a wee bit special to me 🙂
Oscar is best buds with Keito, her Canadian Pionus friend. They go on virtual adventures together, and have been known to get into the moonshine often! Keito of course is a bad influence, being a Canuck via South America and all, ha ha.
Ladies and gentlemen, Keito and Oscar are now taking the stage for another sold out performance as The Tipsy Chicks!
Oscar often has some explaining to do when she gets home from these adventures and mom see’s her beautiful, pure white feathers covered in mud and foliage. Such debris tends to stand out when you’re white! Such happenings cause Oscar’s mom to worry just a little bit about what her sweet, innocent Oscar is up to on these ‘excursions’.
