I was pretty shocked myself when I was able to get this photo of my parrot family... it's on self timer and I just thought that hopefully the birds would want a family photo as much as I did! I think they did pretty darn good, don't you?
I often get asked, "How many parrots do you have?"
The answer can be complicated, because sometimes I am bird sitting for someone or training a bird for someone else, sometimes I'm hand feeding for a client or raising the bird until a certain age until it goes to its owner... there are many different reasons I'm always with a different bird. Or that you might see me with one bird and then not hear about that one for a while. The ones above, however, are pretty much mine and aren't going to anyone.
My military macaw tends to bounce between family houses for training so sometimes you hear more about him than other times but you can usually always get an update about him somewhere on the web!
Thought I'd leave you with this crazy video of all the birds in the house at once. We decided to be adventerous! And it was so much fun, we did it two days in a row.
