You Know You're A Bird Person When...

Family, friends and colleagues are oblivious to the feathers and poop in your hair.
You take your bird to the vet more than you go to your doctor.
You answer your door with a lovebird in your shirt and wonder why people stare at you.
You buy every single bird toy you can lay your hands on, but refuse to buy your daughter a Barbie doll.
You dress like a hobo at home just so the little highnesses can have free artistic rein on your clothing.
You wear colors and textures that compliment your bird instead of yourself.
Your bird's picture has its place of honor on the family photo wall.
You move out and dump your boyfriend because he doesn't love and honor your parrot like he should.
You check your parrot's profile on more than your own email.
Your bird wolf whistles at you in the shower and you get embarrassed.
You actually like it when your bird tries to build a nest in your hair.
You take more pictures of your bird(s) than of your human children.
You spend a fortune on every known safe cleaner, only to realize the best poop remover is your thumbnail.
You dress like a hobo at home just so the little highnesses can have free artistic reign on your clothing.
Your bird "nibbles" on your ears and you think it's love bites, even though you lose a pint of blood.
You look at every hawk as though it was a criminal.
You never type the letter 'P' or 'O' because there's bird poop between it.

When your phone message greeting not only states your name but your birds' names as well.

When you get excited when your birds get excited, when you say "Who's ready for breakfast?" or "Who wants some dinner?"

You get more excited about buying things for your birds than for yourself.

You have a photo of your bird as your wallpaper on your cell phone.

Your husband eats dinner in the dark because he got home after birdie bed time!

All of your emails are missing capital letters because your bird is perched on one hand and you can't use the SHIFT button!

You start giving away the priceless antique furniture in order to make room for yet another cage.

You get married so you have a live in bird sitter when you go on your adventure vacations.

You leave the house and forget to change your shirt that has bird poop on it... and you don't even care!

You call your best friend to tell her your bird just regurgitated on you.

You open the door to let your dog in and you tell her to Step up.

All your buttoned shirts have unmatched, cracked-in-half or missing buttons.

You take exquisite delight in finding seeds in your socks.

You visit your local pet shop to look at the birds and the shop workers call you the bird lady.

You take a handful of coffee stir sticks every time you visit Starbucks.

When you spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday of your weekend building an awesome playgym for your bird.

When talking to other animals you still whistle to them and call them "Pretty bird.”

You imagine what kind of person you birds would be if they were human.

When all your co-workers are sick and tired of hearing stories ever day about your birds.

When you tell your preschool student to Step-up because she won’t stand, and then frantically look around to make sure no other teachers overheard.

When the children you work with know the names and species of every bird in your flock, but still don’t know your last name.

You have a separate area in your closet for bird shirts.

You have to make sure you get home early enough from any outing because the birds have to be in bed at a certain time.

You know you're a bird person when most of the things you tell people you want for Christmas are for your bird! :)

When you say good morning to your parrot before your husband.

When your feathery older brother/sister with whom you grew up for over 20 years passed away, you took a whole month off and told everyone that you just lost one of your siblings (and actually mean it that way).

You also know you're a bird person when you buy Rio the movie because it's your bird's favorite movie and you want to watch it with him/her).

I feel so relieved to know that there are actually other people just as crazy about birds as me!

When you spend more time, money & energy selecting door for your bird and you'll eat the cheapest food you can find ... and you see nothing odd about this all.
