    Episode Twelve: Bird Psyches

    This week’s bonus-length episode marks the culmination of our first season of the Bird Show, and we chose a topic worthy of this special occasion: Bird Psyches.  We’ve seen throughout the Bird Show how adept avian beings are at just about everything.  Today we dive beneath the surface to discover the psychological world of Birds.  Dr. Gay Bradshaw joins the flock for a fascinating conversation covering everything from trauma recovery to her lifelong journey with Panama, the Yellow-naped Amazon Parrot.

    Episode Eleven: Sun Conures

    On today’s episode, we’re shining a light on Sun Conures (also known as Sun Parakeets), a charismatic species whose feathers are as bright as their personalities.  Through the eyes of co-host Gir, we’ll explore what it’s like to be a Conure in captivity: the ups, downs, and in-between.  These beautiful birds are endangered in the wild, making this a rare opportunity to get to know Sun Conures on a whole ‘nother level.
