Third Week of October: Nanny to a Bird


I spent the weekend as nanny and companion to a small bird: a conure by trade and Piper by name. In case you know as little about birds as I do, here’s the skinny.” Conures are a diverse, loosely defined group of long- tailed New World parrots.”

Piper

Piper is a sociable little bird brimming with personality. He is always up for socializing, a bit of banana, and some pomegranate seeds.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I am adding both a photo taken with poor lighting and a little video.  Below is the link to a poor quality video filmed with my camera phone. When you click the link, it will take you out to Sharecast, where the video is stored for playing. Click on the arrow to start.
