And her birthday millet. She was being shy and wanted to eat her millet behind the computer.
Happy Hatchday Sido, we love you! XO
Tico whistles the main theme of Game of Thrones (the last season premieres tonight).
“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.
Kicking off cockatiel week (in honor of Sido’s upcoming hatchday) with drawing (and coloring) a cockatiel.
A man in Anchorage, Alaska passed away, leaving behind 300(!) cockatiels. The birds appeared to be healthy and well cared for.
The baby cockatiels that were found will be hand fed.
The Alaska Bird Club plans to adopt out some of the birds from two Petco locations. Other birds will be taken to Anchorage Animal Care and Control, where they will be available for adoption after a period of quarantine.
You can follow updated on the cockatiels by visiting The Alaska Bird Club page, here.
