The latest news from a Refuge for Saving the Wildlife.
(CBS) Mira Tweti and Zazu, her pet parrot, are inseparable. Not because Tweti (pronounced Tweety, and yes, that's her real name) wants it that way, but because Zazu demands it, CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker reports. Tweti explains, "With a parrot there's only one place for everything in your home ... and that's on the floor. He's a huge amount of work."
We came, we walked, we sweat and we had a lot of fun! Thanks for organizing this walk, Maryann, Erica and Ann and everybody else who was involved.
We shall post some of the pictures shortly!
Please join us in welcoming our two newest members; Kaiya, a Grey Phase Screech Owl with a broken (and healed) wing and leg who is unreleaseable; and Peaches, an M2 who was returned to the Refuge after ten years in a loving home due to extreme allergies to her dust.
A good article on PBFD. Please read and keep this in mind. This is one of the reasons that Rich & Karen are so strict on making sure all boarders and turned-in parrots are current on disease testing.
This is also why you should not take your bird around other birds who haven't been tested and why you should ask about disease testing before boarding your birds or having someone with birds of their own pet-sit for you.
The lives our our feathered friends are precious... don't take the risk!
