Day 328: Cockatiel Plays Capture the Laptop

Having lots of flock members has its pros and its cons. On the cons side….well, “sharing” is never a favorite.

Day 325: Wet Bird Couture Is Back!

It can be challenging work – juggling an empire. One minute you are engrossed in planning your newest one-avian hit play. The next minute you are called away for some top secret mission – allegedly.

Day 229: Cockatiel Is the Muffin Master

In a wild setting, cockatiels live in enormous flocks numbering hundreds or thousands of feathers. It is glorious….but competitive. Sure, there are lots of ladybirds.
