Are Himalayan Salt Lamps to Parrots what Coal Mines Were to Canaries?

Editor’s note: some of you may remember my journey enabling my mother’s return to Chicago Arlene (my mom) has been on five of the seven continents. Eight years ago at the tender age of 76, she spent three weeks traveling to China.

The Himalayas span five countries: India, Nepal, Bhutan, China (Tibet), and Pakistan, with the first three countries having sovereignty over most of the range. At the time, China had not closed the border to Tibet and she was able to spend three days there. According to mom the majesty, environment, and the purity of the air you breathe in the Himalayas – cannot be understated.

What Causes Small Moths in a Home With Pet Birds?

Great question Ron,
 
So here’s the deal, birdseed is a natural product harvested from the ground outside. All bird seed contains bug eggs. They could be weevils, grain moths, and so forth.

Bird Flight Suit Endorsement

Dear Catherine and Mitch, I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the flight suit and leash I purchased from your company. When my cockatiel’s cage mate died, I wanted to find a way that I could spend more time with my remaining cockatiel tiel (Rai).
 I saw the flight suit on your site and watched your video. So, although I was skeptical, I decided to give it a shot. My cockatiel is a 7-year-old bird with a feisty personality.
 
I followed the instructions, took two weeks just showing it to her, placing her favorite treats on it, hanging it in her cage, etc.
