Last Tuesday saw me getting up very early in preparation for a photographer coming out from the Vancouver Sun newspaper to do a story on losing pet birds. I had had a very quick telephone interview with the reporter the day before and, although the story didn't really go the direction I wanted it to, it did get some people's attention on keeping a closer eye on their birds in the summer.
Here are the URL's....
For the story look here. Here are more photos. And a short video is here.
You will notice that Bella & Bobby have very long beaks. They have now been trimmed again. They have had health issues in the past that cause their beaks and nails to grow faster than normal and need trimming every 3-4 months. Ths pics were taken several days before they were trimmed. If left too long, it can affect birds so that they cannot eat properly. It takes regularly-scheduled vet visits to keep them managed.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the story and photos and video!
Blessings to all! Have a great weekend.
