Which live plants do you have in Boomer's rainforest? It looks really neat!

Thanks! Mostly dracaena marginata, then money plants, various succulents which were unnamed from the store. All of them bird safe. I suggest going for the dracaenas. They are easy to care for, low maintenance and improves the room’s air quality.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while! It’s hard to juggle 2 accounts. I have a lot of new Boomer pics. Here’s are recent ones. Took him on what was supposed to be a light trail hike. We deviated from the trail and got a little lost. I had a moment of panic when I went through foliage draped in spider webs. I have mild arachnophobia. Still had loads of fun though. Boomer’s first trek through the woods!!!

I want a bird so bad is it difficult taking care of one and what environment is best i just ahh I want one so bad but idk if I live in the right house/area to be able to have one

Hi Daniphantomofficial,

I am glad you are asking this question now before taking the plunge. No amount of research will prepare you for the demands and rigors of parrothood. Caring for parrots is not like having a dog, cat, hamster, fish, etc. It’s like having a hyperactive, flying, biting, screeching, ADD-stricken 2 year old who will never grow up and leave you in peace when they turn 18!

If I had known what I know now, having lived with my sun conure, Boomer, for 2 1/2 years, I would PROBABLY not get a parrot. That said, I love my little buddy to death and am committed in giving him the best life I could for the next 30 or so years. But parrots are just something else.

I like to be very honest with potential parrot keepers. I did not have this luxury before I made the big decision that changed my life forever. I read about it, but in my arrogance ignored the warnings, thinking the whole venture was a piece of cake. My advice is to read, read, and read some more till you no longer can. Visit parrot sanctuaries. These places are where unwanted parrots end up in, after their keepers couldn’t handle it anymore. 

Parrots are awesome, lovable creatures, but they are not to be taken lightly. Best of luck in your decision whatever it may be. Ask me if you have any other questions. Visit this parrot forum and peruse the threads on there, you will learn a lot: http://www.parrotforums.com/forums.php

I shared this track on my private account a while back, but I think it deserves to be heard by more people. This song resonates with me deeply, having gone through stuff the past few years and coming out renewed. If your character is severely tested by life, have a listen. Give yourself a pat on the back because you’re awesome. Give your bird a scritch while you’re at it. These little guys keep you going more than you think!
