Office Fun

By Laura Doering

Every month is an adventure when it comes to producing the next issue of BIRD TALK. This is especially true when we do photo shoots. For this month’s cover, we brought in Buttons, the yellow-collared mini macaw. Buttons was quite the trooper, considering that he suddenly found himself perched in front of a camera and flash bulb; posing for photos on his playgym; perched on his owner’s hand; on a toy and otherwise positioned so we could snap the winning cover shot. (Speaking of mini macaws, here’s my mini macaw joke: “Where do mini macaws go to buy BIRD TALK magazine? At their local Hahn’s & Noble.” Get it?! OK, so maybe only a handful of mini macaw owners get it, but I couldn’t resist.)

After Buttons, came my nanday conure Ollie’s closeup for my new editor’s note photo. Ollie should be used to coming with me to work by now, but he’s still the clingy conure, screeching in protest if I dare leave him in my office so I can grab a cup of coffee down the hall. When you bring a parrot to work, you have to be prepared for heads popping up from cubicles, and having to explain why there is a bird perched atop of the bathroom stall when a startled co-worker walks in.
