Sharman Hoppes, president of AAV with Gulliver

The Association of Avian Veterinarians invited me to speak at their 2013 conference this August, after hearing about The Roaming Parrot and what we are trying to accomplish. Being able to present anywhere is a gift, and being asked to give a presentation to a group of professional avian veterinarians was an honor. So about a week after I arrived home back from the first Roaming [...]

It never ceases to amaze me the things that can come from people who share a common bond. During this trip we have received so much help and support from a myriad of people who share my passion for parrots. Not only have bird people cheered for us from the sidelines, they’ve filled our gas tank, treated us to lunch, given us a place to stay and a bed to sleep in.
