Hit The Beach

Show off your love for parrots the next time you go to the beach with these bird-themed accessories

By Connie Cho

Courtesy Beyond Batik CanadaThe sun is shining, and the waves are calling your name. Summertime equals beach time in many parts of the world. Even if the oceans are miles away, you can still enjoy the lazy days of summer. This month, BIRD TALK found a few goodies to make life a beach for bird lovers.

Wrap yourself up in this stunning hand-painted sarong (right) from Beyond Batik Canada. The sarong comes in a variety of species designs including a white-bellied caique design. Pair the sarong with the asymmetrical batik tank top featuring a black-headed caique. Contact: Beyond Batik Canada, (807) 577-9373,

Then head the beach party with all your stuff in these adorable quilted cotton totes. The two styles feature a blue-and-gold macaw appliqué on pink and a cockatoo appliqué on sky blue (left.)
