Our Nanday Conure is 25 years old and going strong.  He/she eats mostly sunflower seeds greatly supplemented with our table food.  Mostly pasta, chicken, beef, apples, toast, fish, etc. Most of her day is spent outside of her cage on the top of her outside perch.

I love helping give advice on the different parrot species, as well as their care (diet, housing, ect...). I also love helping people find the right kind of parrot for them, or help people (and their birds) work through behavior problems and things of that nature. I`m open to any non-emergency questions, and if I can`t help you, hopefully I will be able to direct you to someone who can. (or maybe online articles and such). The species of parrots I have first hand experience with are: cockatiels, lovebirds, conures, budgies (aka: parakeets), parrolets, macaws, cockatoos, Amazons, Pionus and Afican Greys.


I've volunteered for Mickaboo Cockatiel Rescue since 2000. I volunteered for a wild-bird rescue center for 3 years. I've been the avian expert at the pet store since 2001 and was certified as an avian specialist by PIJAC (Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council) in 2004. I've also been owned by parrots since 1993! :)
