Hello Beautiful

Mother nature sure knows how to usher in a new year with flare!  Over the last two days, many of us in central Ontario – in the District of Parry Sound, have been treated to a glorious new year’s with frosted snow covered trees, roads and lakes.  Everything sparkles!

Welcome 2019!  So far, so beautiful!

Goodbye 2018

There’s nothing good, bad or sad about another year passing, it’s just a natural course of action for all living things.  Time passes and, if we’re lucky, we get glimpses into the future with each new day’s arrival.  img_20181208_1012321396510045098733994.jpg

For the next 365 days of 2019, I hope the global community can be brought closer together in love and respect for one another, and that we are all witnesses to positive actions and commitment to protecting and revitalizing the world’s wildlife and natural spaces.

My hope for 2019: to hear of more tigers in the wild, more wild parrots flying freely in the Amazon Rainforest, more, healthy polar bears roaming the tundra, more wild and safe pangolins in the wild, fewer destructive forest fires and floods around the world, and many more areas of the world’s land mass and waters set aside and protected as habitat sanctuaries.

Goodbye 2018, it’s been interesting…

Pionus Parrot Perfection

Maximilian pionus (also known as Maximilian’s pionus and the Scaly-headed parrot) are Abbyunderstated beauties.  Their green, bronze and brown feathers shimmer in the light, the mauve/purple breast feathers are rare in the family Psittacidae, the striking white eye ring, and the brilliant red feathers on the underside of the tail make Maxis, in my opinion, among the most beautiful of parrot species.  With gentle, knowing hazel-hued eyes and a calm, sweet personality, it is not hard to understand why – and how, Maxi Pi have endeared themselves to many companion  parrot enthusiasts.

Abby (right) is roughly 26 years old, and still the sweetest, most gentle companion parrot I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and loving.
