Dances with Bees
I travel about town with three of my parrots that I have trained for ten years, I educate people about birds and why they should be enjoyed in the wild, not caged, especially birds of the macaw and cockatoo families, I know my trained birds make people want them, but I explain about the time it took to train them and show them why the frustration they feel in not having the life they were meant to live always hounds them!!!Yes. You can post your images elsewhere... I think it's a silly rule that you wouldn't be able to do that since part of my objective is to get people to actual use and render my birds (in turn, those viewing the renders might get excited about birds and maybe think about loving and protecting them).
Okay, I'm lost at sea for three days, suddenly a pigeon lands on my shoulder and starts cooing, now I am torn, do I try to write a message and tie it to the pigeons leg or have squab for lunch...lolPigeons are pretty good spotters as well..
The Coast Guard intends to spend $146,000 over the next two years to train a "rescue squab" of pigeons to find people lost at sea.
A Navy report just released says that in experiments, pigeons strapped on a helicopter outdid Coast Guard air crews every time in spotting objects tossing on the ocean's surface.
