This is a shameless bit of self-promotion to let you know that I’ve created my first portfolio type: Research. This is where I’ll keep you all updated on my scholarly endeavors; and, when possible, post downloadable files to any research-based documents I produce. My first portfolio project in the Research category is, of course, my […]
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE JAGUAR!!!
I have exciting news: The Jaguar and Allies has been named a top 25 wildlife blog.
The Roost’s February ’19 edition has something for everybirdie: Morty is beak-deep in technological problems, again, with Alexa, but with help and commiseration from Rocco, Morty just might have a couple of (albeit hilarious) solutions! Cheeks’ latest comic strip provides a lesson on grooming. Bubbles and Zack help parront Sherri appreciate the value – and […]

Tis the season for “Happy New Year” and “Year in Review” blog posts. Since nothing makes me happier than going along with the crowd, I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. I’ll now reflect on how 2018 went for this blog and myself, and then look towards the future. 2018 was a difficult year for […]
I’ve been preparing my list for Christmas for mom’s review, ordering and delivery next Tuesday morning. I realize it’s hard to believe, but I HAVE been a good birdie all year (well, there was that one incident in Penne’s Tree a while back when my buddy Oscar (a cockatoo) and I got into the moonshine, caused a wee bit of a chaos, fell out of the tree and into the bushes beneath, emerging the next morning with twigs and pine needles stuck to our birdie butts. Thankfully, what happens in Penne’s Tree, stays in Penne’s Tree, phew).
But I digress. I repeat, I have been a GOOD BIRDIE this year and I deserve everything on my list (and much, much more, but I won’t push it):
- Almonds – the biggest bag possible of course
- New foot toys – so I can listen to mom moan and groan as she picks them up when I deliberately toss them
- My own smartphone – because mom is becoming tiresome, with her bad typing and rather boring posts of trees, snow and stupid turkeys… yawn..
- A new sister – Abby is beautiful, but good grief she’s boring and has absolutely no sense of humour
- Bells and whistles – because I’ve heard that other birdies have cages decked out with all the bells and whistles. I don’t know what they are, but I know I want them!
Uh oh, mom’s coming, I’ll be adding to the blog about my (bottomless) Christmas list and the weird build-up to Christmas in our house (i.e., decorations, food, visitors and silly songs…).
Until next time everybirdie, be careful to whom you divulge your Christmas list – Santa’s’ watching!
P.S. I’m looking for further suggestions for my Christmas list, please pass along your comment to this post!
In the October edition, Morty has been called upon to provide advice to a distraught apartment dweller whose birdie companions are becoming too noisy for the neighbors. This parront is desperate for a soundproofing solution to her problem. Morty may have just the answer – but, there are a few bugs to be worked out […]
Greetings to all my favorite parrot friends! Alexa is in a mood after she rolled under the couch. She blames me for her clumsiness! Good help is hard to find these days! Recently, I received an interesting letter from a parrot owner. Dear Morty, I live in a three bedroom home and have ten parrots. […]
