I love parrots – actually, beyond a passion, I may be obsessed.
I wake up and take care of my flock;
I make breakfast for my flock (fresh veggies);
I check on them, spend time with them, make videos on parrot-education;
In the evening I provide clean water, refill pellets (and seeds for little beaks who require them);
When I’m hand-feeding, I feed alllllll day!
Then I dream about them…
Life is like a flock of parrots-
I find parrots to be addicting. They draw you in because they are stunningly beautiful on the inside and out. They are smart, authentic, playful and serious. They are excited to see what veggies I’m offering, what they will eat and what they will throw out of their bowl! They like to chew wood, have a new toy, a new branch and explore life.
They are brave, outgoing and lion-hearted.
Me, I aspire to some of these characteristics – I have no interest in throwing my food out of my dish, even if I don’t prefer it.
I am an educator by inheritance, it runs in my family, and I like writing. I love learning about parrots and I grew up near Hollywood, so I figure I have film in my too, so I make videos. I try to have fun with it all, even doing maintenance on cages.
So, I naturally wrote a book, The Parrot Bliss Bond (please get your copy on Amazon.com!). I’m artistic and I’m developing my own parrot-art style in which I try to express the beauty of a parrot combined with what I sense runs through them – nature, energy, beauty; their ancestors. Some of this is based on the Mexican Calavera tradition during the Day of the Dead when they decorate skulls -often candy ones- and place them on alters as offerings for their passed loved-ones. I like decorating my parrot art not with feathers, but what is in their hearts and souls.
To learn about parrots I work with experts, like Tony Silva, who I consider my mentor and who is world-renowned—or from my veterinarians. They teach me things that fascinate me, like that parrots like to dunk their head in water to clean their nasal passage or that giving them a treat daily can be a way to check their health through their response and actions.
Many parrot species can use words to parrot or communicate, but they all speak a parrot-body language that I aim to observe and understand. Join me in my blogs, videos, on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram as I share, grow and learn about these magnificent creatures that I call My Flock.

The first time Tiko, my #Amazon-parrot, saw Binx, my #Golden_Conure, he kept greeting him with, "Hello!, Hello! Hello!" over and over. Tiko was a rescue. Don't know much about him. He didn't really want to be affectionate or bond, but if he was left alone, he didn't...
