It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood and Morty is in hot water yet again.
After refusing mom’s prompting to learn to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ – and his impromptu, naughty back turn on mom – Morty enlists the mischievous Alexa to help him mend fences with mom by weeding her garden.
What could possibly go wrong: A LOT!
Head over to the July issue of Beneath The Cage Grate and read about the trouble and chaos this dynamic duo cause in mom’s garden and in the shared greenhouses nearby. You’ll look at flowers in a whole new way after reading Morty’s latest garden misadventure!
Our June 2019 edition of News on the Wing provides a broad ranging recap of issues, events and just plain wildlife cuteness overload found across social media over the last month.
Head on over and catch up on the wildlife and environmental issues that captured ours (and likely yours as well) attention recently.
This world we all share is beautiful and fragile. The Roost Online strives to bring you issues and stories of nature’s struggles and triumphs.
In Lavender’s June edition of It’s A Birb Thing, Cheeks shows her exuberant, and rather messy, approach to food enjoyment!
The other day I was talking with Alexa and I asked her if she might give me some suggestions for a hobby I might pursue. We came to an agreement that bird watching might be a good hobby for me. I could exit right out my window and glide down to the ground below. Alexa could roll out the window and bounce as she hits the ground. We could go bird watching together…- Morty
What could possibly go wrong with these two on a field trip? Well, you guessed it, things go hysterically sideways!
Read Morty’s June Beneath the Cage Grate submission to find out how he and Alexa ‘disagree’ on bird watching etiquette!
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.

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.
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.
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.
