Everyone who lives with a parrot knows that if you’re not in sight, your feathered companion will do whatever it takes to get your attention. Cheeks doesn’t like it when her human leaves her alone and goes out. She waits and waits and waits (kinda patiently but not so much) for her mommy to get home.
See Cheeks’ reaction when no one answers her call in the August issue of It’s A Birb Thing.
It’s hard to accept, but sometimes we’re not our bird’s favorite human. Often, with more than one person in a household, companion birds choose one person who they like best, bonding with that individual in a strong, special way.
This doesn’t mean the ‘second favorite’ person isn’t liked, it’s just that the bond isn’t as strong.
But, there are ways to ingratiate yourself and become their close-to-favorite person. Sherri’s August Feathered Frenzy article provides tips on how to build trust and show that you respect that while you may not be their favorite human, you do love them and want to part of their cherished flock.
Morty’s latest escapade takes him on a mission to right the wrongs perpetrated by an errant little Goldfinch who’s wreaking havoc in mum’s garden.
Morty confronts this pipsqueak and demands it refrain from damaging any more of mum’s beloved plants.
However, Bratbird’s reaction to Morty’s plea only inflates his feathers! See how Morty deals with this little upstart in the August issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.
In the July edition of It’s A Birb Thing, Cheeks finds herself a bit tangled up.
Living with parrots is a lot different then living with other species like dogs or cats. As all parronts know, our birdies have big personalities, and we parronts make a host of accommodations to ensure we keep our feathered companions happy, healthy – and occupied!
In this edition of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri explores some of the lifestyle changes – perhaps better stated, adaptations, she and Rick have made to keep Zack and Bubbles entertained and feeling as integral members of the flock.
Because, they’re worth it!!!
You know when they say ‘if it’s too good to be true’ it probably is… well it was very true for Morty’s Twitter friends, Beach Beaks recently!
After receiving a disturbing letter from King Olaf, our in-house intrepid investigator was on the case. What he discovered was very dark.
All birdies need to know what happened to King Olaf and his Beach Beaks flock so you too can be on the look out for sneaky tricks and evil deeds our humans sometimes try to pull on us!
Catch up with Morty in the latest edition of Beneath the Cage Grate to see what happened to poor King Olaf and Beach Beaks birdies – and learn the key signs of when you’re about to be duped by your humans.
Spa Schma, it’s a trap, it’s a trap I say!!!
As parronts, we all know what happens sometimes when we leave the room and our birdies don’t know where we’ve gone.
Check out how Cheeks expresses her feelings on this serious issue in the June edition of It’s A Birb Thing.
In the June edition of Feathered Frenzy, we find Sherri, Zack and Bubbles mesmerized and intrigued with happenings occurring around the yard, including foraging wild birds, trespassing raccoons and errant neighbors running machinery far too close to Zack’s property!
It’s important for our birdie companions to share in activities that we too enjoy. Zack and Bubbles often join Rick and Sherri in observing wild birds enjoying seeds at the feeders, or fledglings just beginning to explore their new world.
This month’s Feathered Frenzy reminds us to share in our companion birds’ interests and need for external stimulation by joining them in enjoying the external activities they too find engaging and intriguing – and sometimes, in the case of Zack, a cause for sounding the Conure Alarm!
Poor Morty, coupled with Lockdown madness and masked humans, his bot buddy Alexa has recently ratcheted up her silliness to a whole new level.
Seems Morty is now being told where to go, what to do and how to do it in Sign form…
If this craziness continues, Morty is going to make his own sign for Alexa, and you can bet it will not be parrot – or bot, friendly 🙂
Find out what Morty has been dealing with of late n the June edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.
Alright already, I’m starving! I haven’t seen an errant French fry, flung about by a wasteful human in months. WHERE ARE THE HUMANS? I’m a seagull, so a novel coronavirus means absolutely nothing to me. The fact there are no fries is a big deal!!!
I make my living mooching and believe me, humans are usually reliable for throwing us our share of fries. So it’s been a lonely, hungry Spring for us seagulls.
