To make a long story short....Hi! My name is Traci. I am a mama of four amazing kiddos that are animal naturalist in training to be Avian Specialists and the voice for ALL animals in need with a focus on Equine. The WHOLE family is involved with our parrots and parrot care, even my ROCKIN husband! We have adopted many birds that were neglected and in need of proper parrot care and attention. We also believe in preserving the species of pet parrots by allowing our pet birds to occasionally breed throughout the year. All babies adopted out are placed in homes that meet our high standard parrot care guidelines. Below is a short story of my background and qualifications.
Read. Think. Love.
At loveyourparrot.com, we are excited to share with others our passion, education, and expertise of parrots. With over 20 years of working in the pet industry with various species of animals, studying biology in college, extensive training with a large avian specialist bird breeder on neonate care and avian behavior, achieving a certificate as a Certified Avian Bird Specialist, working with veterinarian medicine, and as a past Penguin Zoo Keeper at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, we know birds and their needs. We take great pride in making sure every bird is nurtured and given the best possible care through education.
We take an active part in donating to rescue rehabilitation bird centers, conservation projects such as the Midwest Avian Adoption Rescue, The Gabriel Foundation, and Parrots International. Adopting neglected and unwanted parrots has given loveyourparrot.com the inspiration to reach out and educate the public on the importance of proper parrot care, parrot nutrition, and careful decision making when deciding to purchase a bird.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments regarding parrot care, products, or related issues.
