Tabloid Parrot

Join in on Laura's fun and experiences of bird ownership, and share in her adventures as the editor of BIRD TALK, the world’s most widely read pet bird magazine, in Wayward Feathers.

My mom’s Birthday is today (Happy Birthday Mom!) and so I’ve had the chance to spend the day with her. After a visit, my mom typically hands off a stack of magazines she’s already read. Often included in this bunch are some guilty pleasures … tabloids.

A story in the “National Enquirer” caught my attention. In between all the gossip and scandals, there was the tender story of Willie the quaker parrot that saved the life of a choking toddler by saying “Mama baby” to get the babysitter’s attention.

This was yet another notch in Willie’s massive media coverage (and I hope to score an exclusive, too!). I love it when a parrot gets the national spotlight, even if it’s sandwiched in between celebrities’ alleged affairs and photo gallery of famous people looking their worst.
