Think of a bunch of garden hoses banded together arbitrarily shooting water out one or the other.
As opposed to a “firehose” of information.
Now you know what fielding questions about captive bird care looks like to us.
We don’t know where it’s going to come from – Disqus, our blog, one of three ways you can contact us directly on the website or email.
Just organizing the questions is a task in-and-of-itself.
The following was part of an answer to the following Quora question.
“What would be a bird’s reaction if we tied a helium balloon to their legs (that would make them float)? What about a bat? How would they adapt? QUESTION DETAILS IN COMMENTS”
At some point in the very short response I saw these words
“Someday, I’ll tell you about the time I duct taped his feet to the kitchen floor to prevent him from chasing mine”.
Children are loud, messy, and time-consuming, but every family has 2.6 of them (Pew Research).
I probably spend less time cleaning up after my eight birds in three birdcages than most moms cleaning up after 2 six-year-olds
or a single toddler
To say that all birds are time-consuming is an unsupported blanket statement.
We have a Senegal parrot and an African ringneck.
Neither is very noisy.
I just want to thank you for the weekly messages – for the stories you tell, and all that you teach us.
I have had a 10-year-old female Goffin’s cockatoo in my care for 2-1/2 years.
Editor’s note: Goffin’s cockatoo aka, Tanimbar corella aka Goffin’s corella.
Her owner was someone I knew most of my life and she committed suicide suddenly with no warning.
She had many animals.
Horses, dogs, cats, snakes, rats, and a bird.
We don’t generally interact with mainstream bird rescue organizations.
The last bird club/rescue meeting I spoke at began with a police presence called by the current president trying to forcibly remove the former president, who wouldn’t leave.
The next 15 minutes resulted in parliamentary maneuvers so legal action could be brought against the former bird rescue president.
We’ve seen that a lot over the years.
Which is why we mainly work with private rescues and bird rescue initiatives.
