Scenery: Cloudland State Park (GA)We spent a three day vacation in Cloudland State Park in Georgia. It was the most beautiful place I have seen in a long time. Wish everyone could see it. These are just a few pictures of its beauty.


A white bird perched on a branch in a cage.

Avoid Feeding These Foods To Your Pet BirdIn spite of the rumor that you "should" feed your parrot grit, do not do so. They do not need this, and grit can cause crop impaction, so he'll be unable to digest his food properly. Excess grit in the gut can lead to death.

Growing plants in a cinderblock.

Start Plants in Cinder BlocksI like to use old cinder blocks to plant things in. When they get big enough, I move them. It is hard for the birds to get into the block or the cats to dig them out before they have grown big enough to transplant.
