I haven’t had an exclusively parrot post in awhile, so here goes!
There’s a wonderful parrot store a few miles from my house called Omar’s Exotic Birds where tame babies sit on clean perches, well-fed and watered and just waiting for you to pet them. Here were some of the denizens of Omar’s on a day I was out and about with my camera.
“Love me, pet me, take me home!”
The dearly departed: birds I have loved and lost
Peeper 1984 – 2004 Grey Cheeked Parakeet (small parrot). My most beloved pet who died of very old age.
Hansi 1978 – 2000 Mom’s Umbrella Cockatoo, died of unknown digestive causes.
Smoochy 2004 – 2005, Pacific Parrotlet, died of hepatitis (non-human kind)
Parrots who own me now:
Gizmo, 13 year-old Black-Headed Caique (with my Dad)
Ooops! Not a parrot…
Gobi, 6 month old Orange-Chinned Parakeet (actually a small parrot)
Birds – gotta love ’em. I do!
