My Sister - The Beak Whisperer


Happy Friday to you all. Where did the week go, I don't know about you but the days are flying by and it will be Christmas tomorrow! Speaking of that, just the other day my sister was saying how she has been picking up presents for her 'boys', those boys being of the feathered kind. I know, I have never mentioned these nephews, but I really know nothing about birds that live in the house, and so I leave all of that knowledge to my little sis, who has such a way with the birds that she has been named by some as 'The Beak Whisperer' as her blog is so named.



Here is Zeek, the Nanday Conure, a rascal for sure and one that I never get my fingers near his lopper like beak!




This is Timothy, bless his heart, a Timneh African Grey who was adopted by Sis. When she got Timmy, he looked horrid from picking most all of his body feathers off, I couldn't even look at him for a long time when I would go visit...it was very sad. Look at him now, with her knowledge and patients, he has come a long way. She has developed special toys that birds need to occupy their minds and beaks.

Here is their Condo unit, Timothy's is on the left, Zeek is on the top right and Gabe the Cockatiel, who is painfully camera shy, is on the bottom right. They have a wonderful view of the chicken compound where they can boss those silly birds around through the window.

Her love of the feathered friends have even spilled over into her art work..Love this sweet owl!


Do you think they all might be spoiled? Our brother always says "When I die, I want to come back as one of Michelle's animals". How funny!

Like I said, my knowledge of birds end with the chickens so I will invite you to go over to her blog where you can see more.

I hope you all have a fun packed weekend in store. xo

I visited Michelle's beak whisperer blog. Love birds. I used to have a pair of parrotlets and I still miss them. I do believe Michelle's babies are spoiled :)
