Cooper decided that once a month she wants to feature those who rescue, shelter or are active in the conservation of her feathered friends. This month she would like to promote The Center for Avian Adoption, Rescue, and Education (CAARE).
CAARE is a non-profit, all volunteer organization in North Dakota devoted to the welfare of companion parrots. They help parrots find new homes as well as educate the public on caring for birds.
They have a room dedicated to large parrots and one for small parrots. CAARE does on site visits (nursing homes, schools, etc) as well.
If you live in the area and would like to help, you can adopt or volunteer. You can also support this organization by donating. CAARE has a facebook page where you can see photos of the parrots posing with their adoptive humans. Cooper loves to see the photos of the birds with their new families.

The flock is going to take a week off from blogging for a little vacation. The budgies found some fun stuff on the internet to share on Cooper’s Corner until they return, so check back. See you soon!

We put Sunny’s cage in the same room with the other budgies.
They seemed excited to see each other.
Then we let Cooper, Dewey and Ozzie out (while Sunny was in her cage) to see how they would behave. Cooper seemed indifferent and Ozzie preferred to play with the string of a toy, but Dewey was fascinated with Sunny. I think he’s in looooooove. And fickle! He’s supposed to be Cooper’s boyfriend…
Hopefully, Sunny will see how we interact with the other budgies and become tamer. She’ll step up while she’s in her cage, but not when she’s out of it.
