Recently, I experienced my first major Facebook encounter of a “not so nice” nature. My words were misconstrued, as well as my intent. I can’t really say how or why it happened, but it centered on my major passion, which is my love of parrots. Few people realize the crisis that is going on in the avian community. Literally there are hundreds of thousands of parrots needing rescue, a new home, or a safe sanctuary where they can live […]
A Favor and a Vote For Small Business. This is why I do what I do……because of people like Rebecca Stockslager, Bonnie’s Birds and a cast of 1000′s. Please help us help her win! I thank you and the countless birds that have been “saved” through the good work done at Bonnie’s Birds thanks you…..
Bald Head Island, North Carolina offers so many chances to experience nature. One minute you are deep in the heart of the woods, and the next you are cruising along the coastline! A good friend has a lovely home on the marsh side of the island which offers many opportunities to observe nature at it’s best!

Actually, it takes someone like Emily Trimnal (www.theroamingparrot.com), and Miss Vicki Knox LeClaire (http://www.parrotvillage.org/) to change the life of one sweet Umbrella Cockatoo. Thanks to the quick action of both women, Sebastian has a fighting chance. Sadly, there are so many that are completely oblivious to the issues surround avian abuse and neglect. It is often difficult, if not impossible to impress “authorities” the urgency of situations involving avian abuse and neglect. I will not stop until we have found a […]
These guys are for the birds….. Most of my blogs center around photography as that is where my heart and passion lies. Equally as important to me is the welfare of exotic birds (http://exoticbirds.com/). I am fortunate to share my life with an Umbrella Cockatoo, who goes by the name of Ze’! We named him after our favorite bar in Buzios, Brazil (http://www.buziosonline.com.br/home/portugues/o-que-ver-e-fazer/comer-e-beber/bar-do-ze.cfm). I know, call me shallow, naming my sweet bird after a bar, but believe me when […]
