Yes, my Mom has been taking care of birds since she was little.

She took care of chickens on the ranch when she was growing up. My Grandfather grew up on a ranch/farm.

He used to tell us stories of waking up at the crack of dawn to go and milk cows and do the chores.

I would love to see more picture of your lovely Francine Tammy.

Very beautiful bird.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful day.

When Ms. Francine is not pissy because she's going through a molt, I will try to take some better pics. I still have to sneak up on her if she's out of the cage with that particular camera, something about it sets her off, it must be the whirring noise it makes because she wasn't like this with the old SLR...

Your mom's bird really looks healthy unlike some I have seen.  She must know a lot about birds and how to take good care of them.

Aww pretty blue budgie! We had one when I was growing up, his name was Greenie and he had the most sinister, little voice. I loved that silly bird! Then later we had Nanday Conures their names were Baby and Teach and someone who shall remain nameless watched porn around them late at night while the cage was covered, so both of them would make sex noises and repeat 'yes, yes, yes' in their sexy voices when we had people over and embarass my Mother to death, it was sooo funny!

Here's a picture of my mom's Blue Bird - parakeet.

What a beautiful bird you have Tammy! I'll have to post a picture of my mom's blue bird. It's a parakeet. I just have to find the picture.
I appreciate you posting that.

This is our mouthy, tempermental amazon Francine, she doesn't like the camera.

Steph, that would be great. Is there anything one can do to protect other birds, other than make holes smaller in birdhouses? I have tried to not attract birds to birdhouses, even though I collect them for their whimsey, and I have a lot of shrubs and trees where they nest. I hate it when I see an egg laying on the ground under the Spruce, never even having a chance to hatch.

Joan the Brown-headed Cowbird and Starlings will lay eggs in other nests. There are other parasitic birds as well. I will make a discussion on it. I enjoyed the topic in my Ornithology classes.
