Birthday Tiel

Today is Sido’s Hatchday.

Because she is adopted, we don’t know how old she really is. This is her 4th “Hatchday” with us.

Here she is with one of her presents.

And her birthday millet. She was being shy and wanted to eat her millet behind the computer.
Happy Hatchday Sido, we love you! XO

Cooper’s Book Report

This month’s book is Cockatiel Lessons by Marguerite Floyd.

“Let’s just go in and look.” Marguerite Floyd and her mother decide one day to go into a pet store. Marguerite ends up leaving with a little yellow cockatiel who will soon change her life.

Sugar Franklin is a charming little diva (who hates toes) and Marguerite quickly falls in love with her feathered family member. It is not long before she acquires two more cockatiels (Flash and Nicholas) and an African brown headed parrot, Charli. Soon Marguerite is reading up on birds, visiting chat rooms, befriending fellow bird lovers and even writing articles. 

Cooper loved this story of one woman’s love for and devotion to her birds. Her human could relate to the joys and sorrows that come with loving these beautiful beings. Cockatiel Lessons is a must for anyone considering adding a bird to their family. Just make sure you have a box of tissue handy.
