The Joys of Parroting

The Joys of Parroting

A parrot is a bundle of attitude, bad manners, loudness, messiness, and sweetness. Always the center of attention, unpredictible, and never boring. A drama queen and a glutton, always sneaking and plotting how to get what it wants. Lots can be learned from parrots. How to be relentless and always keep trying to get a sip of that forbidden coffee... Never take no for an answer even if it means being kicked out of the room twenty times in a row... Loudly demand to be left alone if one needs a moment in the cage with a mirror... Do whatever it takes to get a cuddle when in need of attention... Always explore, explore, and explore... Meet Basil, Manuel, and Stephie. The masters of our home.


Quaker Parrots as Pets: Featuring Guest Blogger Joanna Grinberg-Ayala

If you wanna know all about living with a quaker parrot, check out our guest blog post at our friend’s blog – Students with Birds:

Three Birds and a Cloud

Quaker Parrots, also known as Monk Parakeets, are said to be vivacious and noisy ‘big’ birds tucked into 90-140 gram bodies. For guest blogger Joanna Grinberg-Ayala, founder of Diary of a Kooky Parrot blog, this definitely holds true. She explores what life with quirky quaker parrot ‘Basil’ is really like – the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is one real owner’s perspective on what these small parrots are like as pets; the post is part of an ongoing series that seeks to educate the public about life with pet birds. Let’s give Joanna and the fabulous Basil a warm welcome!

You can also follow Basil’s antics on either of her Facebook pages (or Twitter):
