What Challenges Does Your Bird Face This Spring And Summer?

Linda F asks

Hi, As spring approaches we look to protect furry as well as feathered friends.

Any suggestions on Frontline and heartguard type products that are safe around parrots and toos (Cockatoos) when used on three little dogs?

Are the two above mentioned harmful when used on dog that lives in same house as a bird?

Micha and Stewie

A heat source they seek out and build their nests in is electrical transformers. CommEd has access to a number of Quaker rescues who will come and get the birds when requested.

Flying eagle point of view

Hello,

I really enjoy your e:mails and am always interested in the things I learn, or the laughs I get. One thing, they are never boring. Sometimes I see something I’d love to share with my bird club.
