Intelligent, beautiful and often downright silly, the cockatiel has been charming their way into people’s families for many years. For many parrot lovers, their first experience with a parrot was with the cockatiel. This is due to their popularity as pets in many parts of the world. But why are they so popular and what is it like to share a home with one on a day to day basis?
Parrots have been inspiring people worldwide for many years to create works of art. In this blog post, we’ll look at some of the ways artists have found inspiration in our feathered companions and what beautiful artwork has resulted from it.
Here at Bird Street Bistro, in addition to helping parrot owners provide quality, healthy nutrition to their parrots, we’d also like to take the time to acknowledge the people and organizations that have helped parrots and their owners live healthy and happy lives together. One major component in this is helping ensure all parrots are cared for properly. Parrot rescues everywhere take in birds that no longer have a home and rehabilitate and place them into new ones.
Adopting a parrot is a massive responsibility. Even though many people feel compelled to help the birds in a rescue, some may not have the resources or long-term ability to permanently do so. However, there is still something people can do to help. Fostering is when a person takes a rescue animal into their home temporarily to help ease the burden of a parrot rescue that may be overcrowded. It can also help that animal get more individualized attention and care in order to prepare it for a new, permanent home.
