Part 2 of When is a Tweet just a Tweet....

Yesterday I showed you Tazzy with her mangled feathers and her mohawk... but today I want to show you something different.

Things actually.

These things.

Dora and Jewel are their names.

They are mine, too. Well sort of. There is a parrot sanctuary in Massachusetts that lets you do virtual adoptions called Foster Parrots (their link is here). I've sponsored Dora and Jewel for two years. Parakeets are cheap to buy and many times treated as throw-a-way pets. People just open the door and let them go when they get sick of them. Or worse.

That was almost Dora and Jewels fate but they were lucky.

Most are not.

If you want to read about a virtual adoption you can here. I really enjoy it...I even send them treats sometimes.

The other thing I wanted to show you was a recent picture of Tazzy, in all her feathered glory.

She's not surfing or globe-trotting in this picture but she's got a rockin' big girl crest and somehow managed to straighten out her beak... although I miss that crooked smile.

And she's much calmer now.

I'm puzzled by that..what the heck? Why would.. forget it- but people are strange. My friends training one of these guys and is doing a great job. I'm not sure how different the parakeets are to Lovebirds (I have one)..anyway, this cockatiel is gorgeous. Cheers-
