trying to start up a blog just for the peachfront and pet bird coverage

Trying to set up a site that looks more professional. Don't worry. My resumé won't replace my diary. However, nor will a diary replace a resumé.

This is more or less what I posted in the “About Me” section on my Word Press site:

My Published Books

  • A Complete Introduction to Cockatiels, TFH Publications
  • A Step-By-Step Book About Parrots, TFH Publications
  • A Step-By-Step Book About Finches, TFH Publications
  • A Step-By-Step Book About Cockatiels, TFH Publications
  • Parakeets Today, TFH Publications
  • Teaching a Parrot to Talk, TFH Publications

Magazine Articles

I have written dozens of published magazine articles, many on pet birds, often in BIRD TALK, BIRDS USA, and AMERICAN CAGE-BIRD MAGAZINE.

The Peachfront Conure has been my muse for the last 30 years and counting. Inspired by this special bird, I have trained, bred, and lived with the species in my home for three decades. In April 2011, I had the privilege of traveling to Bolivia to observe this species in their wild home. For extra bonus points, I had the pleasure of observing three species of endangered Bolivian macaws — the Blue-Throated Macaw, the Red-Fronted Macaw, and the forever awesome Hyacinth Macaw.

My goal in creating this webpage is to create a place where people can exchange information about this most charming of avian species, the lovely and graceful Peachfront Conure. I am not selling birds.
