I’ve shot quite a bit of video in my adventures in the bird world, with more to come. Of course, when you work with animals and people, a lot of it ended up on the “cutting room floor” so to speak. But some of those clips had some value when you took them out of context; as long as you mixed them with other clips that were just as bad, or just as clumsy. Some are just plain funny. Not all of them are strictly bird-related, just as this blog isn’t necessarily entirely bird-related. Just as a word of warning. I rated this video PG because I do let go with an F-Bomb in one of the clips. So if that offends you, cover your ears. But it was only once! I promise!
Many of them were shot at the Cincinnati Zoo when I was working as a Guest Keeper in September of 2009. Some were shot at the Houston Parrot Festival, and others were outtakes from some of the videos I made about “Chop” and giving my parrots a shower. While I’m pretty serious about getting good information out to people, I’m not one to take myself too seriously. And I think this video definitely demonstrates that! I hope you have fun with it. And I’m sorry about the F-Bomb.

I enjoyed the final video very much! Thanks for a much-needed laugh! Buddy and Skittles are excited about their second on-screen appearance and are being total divas today….hehe Maybe one of these days Nyla will realize that I’m not evil and will step up for me!

Hey I just wanted to let you know I switched my site to a new address. You can find it at http://hungrybird.wordpress.com and I am trying to set up a link to it on my old page. I already added you to my links section on the new page!

Thanks so much for alerting me. I always want to see what you’re up to in the kitchen!

Thanks so much! Do you ever bake anything for your birds?
September 16, 2010 at 4:02 pm
Of course! I make omelettes for them, they get my dinner food, I will give them toast with almond butter or peanut butter, occasionally I’ll make bird bread and I’ll sprout for them. So “baking” is a somewhat limiting term. But I think that “the more paint you throw on the wall” as far as their diet is concerned, the better off they are. As long as it’s good and it’s a huge variety, the better off your birds will be.
