City / State / Country Location
Critters & Corals; Gardening; SCUBA diving; Hiking; Reading; Spending time in Nature
Berta: blind rescue Ruby macaw (approx 18 yrs old)
My One True Love (besides SCUBA diving)
Berta loves to bite unwary cat tails! She also loves penuts and giving Mama birdie kisses. Berta likes to ride outside on her stroller and do her "Ray Charles" bop in the sunshine, too!
Pico: Lilac Crown Amazon (age unknown - at least 23 yrs)
Pico is the senior bird of our flock, and our resident "Watch Bird"
He's been a "look but don't touch me" bird all his life so far but is gradually taming down. Pico has a beautiful voice, and creates spontaneous musical pieces of great beauty. He also loves penuts! Lately he likes going place with Mom looking handsome in his new harness. Pico hasn't flown in 23 years but I'm helping him re-learn & hope to let him be free flighted inside the house. Just got what I hope will be a companion bird for him. Pico's not too keen on people, and would probably prefer to be bonded to another bird
Icarus: LC 'zon #2 (age unknown - at least 14 years)
Icarus is the newest member of our flock. S/he was given to me as a companion bird for Pico. I'm SO hoping Icarus is a girl! I want some baby birdies! But regardless, I want both Icarus & Pico to have a friend of their own kind. Icarus thinks Pico is very interesting! Most of all s/he can't wait to go live in Pico's much fancier house and play with all of Pico's much nicer toys & climb all over Pico's much larger playstand! LOL
Charlie: Cherry head conure - Foster bird - "just visiting"
Poor Charlie decided to beak wrestle with Berta when he had only been here for 2 weeks. So he's spent much of his time here so far convalescing & trying to heal from an injured mandible. He's looking and feeling much better lately & is becoming more playful & talkative. Charlie is lightweight, curious & very affectionate! He would make a perfect "shoulder bird" - for someone who is already deaf in one ear. (He's working on making me into the perfect owner.)
Emerald: Green Cheek Conure - my first "tame" bird (approx 11 yrs old)
Senior GC, militant flock leader & protectress - Bain of all cats everywhere!
Opal: Fallow GC conure (2 years old)
Emerald's eldest adopted "daughter"
Sapphire: GC conure (1 year old)
Youngest of the GC flock
Alex & Alexandra: Eastern Rosella pair (ages unknown)
determined to be life-long "aviary" birds - not tame & clear they don't want to be!
6 budgies: Blue Boy, Easter Egg & Tiger (boys); Buttercup, Skye & Tabby (girls)
not tame, ages unknown - They sing beautiful morning songs every day!
Grew up near Yosemite Natl Park, spent my 20s living there. Came to Berkely to finish my degree in 1990 & kinda got stuck here. Love my job, but hate living in the city & hope to return to the countryside one day. I'm a devout Nature lover & an incurable animal person. Am happiest working in my garden, loving up to my cats & fids, or swiming in a warm ocean (!) Have traveled a bit and am now firmly convinced that 40 feet under (water) is the prettiest place on Earth!
What other type of pets do you own?
