Well, I actually do write quite a bit about parrots I encounter in my travels. In fact, I seek them out - parrots that is, and trips that will bring me into contact with wild parrots.
The reason I'm so interested in wild parrots and the conservation of those wonderful creatures stems from my life prior to becoming a travel writer, full time.
Years ago, my wife ended up adopting a Congo African grey parrot named Nikki. He had lived in two different homes before he came to us. Eight years later, a second CAG came to live with us: Coco. He was six months old when we met him, and has been with us for 10 years now. Five years ago, we adopted another parrot, an Amazon named Einstein.

Okay. So by now, you may be wondering, "What's this got to do with Bloedel Conservatory?"

I've included a shot of the two green-winged macaws grooming each other.
Anyways, you can expect to see more posts about "parrot travels" here in the coming months. Enjoy!
