B.D Butler of the awesome blog called Parrot Earth did a post about The Roaming Parrot in March. The article is titled ‘Not All Who Roam… Are Lost’. It was a very eloquently done piece, and we love hearing the positive feedback from our supporters.
I recently chatted with Emily Trimnal, the author of Emily’s Birds. I first have to say that I find her comical, determined and a very genuine person. She came up with the idea to travel across the country and gather information about different rescues and sanctuaries. When I heard the idea, I thought, “what a great learning tool for those smaller places that don’t have the resources to see first hand how more successful and established rescues make it happen”. Easy enough, right? Wrong.
The project is called The Roaming Parrot, maybe you have heard about it? Now when I ask that question I hope you can feel the yards of sarcasm that are wrapped around it. If you have a computer, are on Facebook and have a bird, I can almost guarantee that you have heard one side or the other about this group. Emily asked me if I would write an article regarding this project and my thoughts, how could I refuse?
