I really appreciate that you are dedicating an article to senior birds because older birds have a lot of personality! I adopted a 10 year old budgie, and I learn something new about him everyday. Older birds have a long life history to tell, and to those willing to listen, will be greatly rewarded with a loving companion.

I really like the Senior Bird Story! I have 3 Amazons who are 60 plus years and all are from a Rescue and I adopted them, I think a story on how long these parrots live and how special they are will be an educational aspect to the long life spans of our feathered friends.
