Look at this cutie! 

She was really friendly and let me walk right up to her and take photos. Wasn’t even bothered by Darlene. Then she walked along the beach with us for ages.

She was also absolutely tiny. I’ve never seen an adult crow that small before, she was only about the size of a small pigeon. Combined with her piebald markings she’s by far the most interesting crow I’ve ever met!

If you need something a little stronger than just water, apple cider vinegar cuts through most bird dirt no problem, and is safe for the bird to consume.

Vinegar and water solution! Works like a charm, completely non-toxic

aequine asked: Hello! I'm about to get a green cheeked conure and your name for your sun conure is my favorite by far, could you please suggest me some names?? Thankyou xx

Hi! Well, I picked Xochitl’s name to match his brother’s name, Pisco. Pisco means “bird” in Quechua, which is the primary indigenous language of the Andes, so I decided that Xochitl’s name should come from Nahuatl, one of the the indigenous languages of Mexico (I’m Peruvian and study colonial Latin American art). Xochitl means “flower”. :D 

If you like the sound of his name you could look around at some more Nahuatl names

  • Quetzalli (large brilliant tail feather)
  • Malinalxochitl (grass flower)
  • Huitzilihuitl (hummingbird feather)
  • Citlalli (star)
  • Xipilli (jeweled prince)
  • Olin (movement)

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! This ask got totally lost in my inbox! Good luck naming your little one!

katana-loves-you asked: What are some safe cleaning supplies to use on a used cockatiel cage? Will Simple Green work?

I tend to use water and a sponge that has never been used with any chemicals and scrub real hard. For things around the house I use Poop Off wipes, which I find pretty handy, if a little bit smelly. I would recommend using as few chemicals as possible! Check the ingredients on Simple Green before using it. And if you do decide to use it, then wipe everything down with water and a clean paper towel! 

If anyone else has any ideas, then please feel free to chime in!
