Hello there. I am the mommy to one goofy Patagonian conure named Magellan, clutchmate to [personal profile] onlysmallwings's Malachi. He's overseeing the writing of this entry from the back of the couch beside me. Magellan is nearing 5 years of age, which seems a little impossible seeing as how I remember him pinfeathered and downy almost yesterday.

Magellan enjoys such pursuits as beatboxing with his daddy, preening my hair, mimicking/mocking cats, kissing his dog, and saying "woo" after I sneeze or blow my nose. ZuPreem grapes are his favorite pellet, but he wants little to do with regular/fresh food. He doesn't even like seeds; he will barely touch Lafeber NutriBerries. Picky kid.

Mr.Luckey and I also have two peach-faced lovebirds, who are ~13 and 9, and we used to have a cockatiel, but he passed away suddenly about 3 years ago, when he was only 4.

I really enjoy the interactivity of birds. They're very different than mammals in terms of type of care, companionship, etc. They take a definite shift in lifestyle, a fairly rigid schedule and more consideration regarding chemicals, fumes and temperatures, but every type of pet requires a slightly different set of needs and considerations.

I went out today and bought an all new set of Calphalon Stainless Steel cookware - gorgeous and birdie-friendly! Its going to be a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to use it to it's maximum capabilities, but Im SUPER excited about it - I've always lusted after Calphalon.

What kinds of drastic changes did you make in your life when you made room in your homes and hearts for birds?
