    "The parrot is beautiful."

    Just saying that I'm going to be slightly less active for the time being due to my health.

    Thank you!

    Okay. There are currently 19+ species of extinct parrots. Most of these extinctions are human-based, though some are not. 

    (This poll does not apply to the parrots like the New Caledonian Lorikeet , which are not officially extinct.)

    Well, yesterday evening I was unfortunately bitten by a rattlesnake.

    I was walking with a friend, who decided to shove me into tall grass. I startled a rattlesnake, and got bitten.

    Thank goodness that my mum works at a hospital, and that the said hospital is only a few miles away - and that my friend had his iPhone.

    According to the nurse, I was lucky that there was minimal "envenomation", mainly because I just had just surprised the little snake rather than, say, thrown a rock at him/her. I did feel pretty sick until this afternoon, though.

    Parrots 3

    Hi! I'm Keet. This blog post is part of a series of lessons about parrots. Enjoy!


    "Can I have a parrot?" Many kids have asked this after seeing a brilliant macaw at a friend's house, or at the feed shop, or in a book. For the aveage family, the answer should be "no".

    Why? Well, most parrots make VERY POOR PETS for the average person. They are loud, intelligent, long-lived, and need a large habitat and lots of care. Plus, some people who adopt parrots sadly know almost nothing about parrot care. If you really, really want a parrot, and know a good deal about your prefered species, you should have the following:

    • High income. Parrots are usually expensive pets, even budgies - the cage, food, toys, medical check-ups and procedures, and adop…

    I just wanted to explain - I'm not very active because I don't know much about parrots. I just do CSS and coding.

    Hi! I'm Keet. This blog post is part of a series of lessons about parrots. Enjoy!

    In Part 1, we covered the fundementals of parrots. In this section, I'll be going over psycology and training and such.

    How do you know what a bird is feeling? Body language is your best bet. Body language is often unclear or complicated, but here's a few of the basics -

    • Pinning eyes (pupils contracting and dilating): excitement, or great interest
    • Raised or ruffled feathers on neck: anger, aggression or frustration
    • Crest straight up (if aplicable): surprise or excitement
    • Flapping in place: desiring attention, happy or wanting to exersize
    • Hanging upside-down: happiness, security or contentment
    • Beak grinding: contentment, security or tiredness
    • Bowing or lowering head: w…

    Parrots 1

    Hi! I'm Keet. This blog post is part of a series of lessons about parrots. Enjoy!

    So, what exactly is a parrot? When most people hear the word, they visualize a rainbow-feathered bird, flying through a tropical rainforest, in the zoo, or maybe perched on a pirate's shoulder. However, there's much more to these birds than that!

    Parrots are in the animal kingdom, of course. They belong to the phylum Chordata (animals with backbones), the class Aves (birds), and the order Psittaciformes (parrots!). Parrots are then divided into three large "superfamilies" - Cacatuoidea, cockatoos, Strigopoidea, New Zealand parrots, and Psittacicoidea, "true" parrots. 

    The birds in the three seperate superfamilies are very diverse, as are the genuses and species wit…
