Hey, where’s my food???
Poor Cheeks, her bowl is empty and she’s none too happy about it!
Visit It’s A Birb Thing to see how Cheeks reacts to this dire birdie dilemma.
Do not adjust your screen! Morty has it on good authority that Sherri’s Alexa Tablet is conspiring to ‘help’ Sherri publish new writings IN FRENCH! It seems Morty’s Alexa, who’s always one step ahead, has passed on her mischievous (some may say devious) behaviours to Sherri’s device (what could possibly go wrong…).
Aside from Sherri’s Alexa trials, Morty also regales us on his ongoing strife with his demonic technological nemesis. Check out April’s Morty’s Column here.
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.
The March edition of News On The Wing is chock full of interesting and important information, collected from social media over the last month. Articles reflect wildlife and conservation issues affecting species and ecosystems around the world.
Some issues are hard and troubling while some, like the following from Twitter’s @scamperspets share an important message in a very endearing way.
“I think this little poem about one of our most fabulous native animals says everything needed about why the humble #hedgehog needs all of our love and care.”
So head on over to News On The Wing
now and enjoy what we’ve gathered together for this month’s edition!
Cheeks is back and as cute as ever! See what our favorite cartoon cockatiel is up to by visiting our It’s A Birb Thing page here.
In his latest column, Morty sends off some interesting advice to a frantic Sherri. Sherri’s still dealing with her own Alexa issues. Morty, in his usual offbeat wisdom, also tries to pawn off one of his own technological nemesis while passing along support and suggestions to Sherri.
Read Morty’s advice to Sherri in the latest issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.
In Sherri’s latest submission, she finds herself wondering the extent to which Alexa (or possibly Skynet itself) knows all her secrets. With her tablet mysteriously booting up and files being moved about, Sherri suspects that all this nefarious business is at the behest, or the invisible hand, of Alexa.
But perhaps even worse, Alexa may be using Sherri’s own secrets, secrets only Bubbles and Zack know, to tailor search results and lead her down murky web paths.
Find out how Sherri has managed to curtail Alexa’s nasty behavior (or not), and whether she can contain Alexa’s spewing of secrets onto social media here.
The Roost’s February ’19 edition has something for everybirdie:
- Morty is beak-deep in technological problems, again, with Alexa, but with help and commiseration from Rocco, Morty just might have a couple of (albeit hilarious) solutions!
- Cheeks’ latest comic strip provides a lesson on grooming.
- Bubbles and Zack help parront Sherri appreciate the value – and pitfalls, of modern digital technology.
- News on the Wing showcases a range of issues impacting wildlife and the environment from around the world, including articles on wildlife crime, wetlands conservation, the plight of the plover, and a celebration of penguins!
- Feather Fun provides an opportunity to test your virtual jigsaw puzzle solving skills as well as your word search acumen.
