This report has really opened my eyes to the seriousness of the Patagonian Conure situation. I think that the Patagonian masses need a GREAT BIRD to lead them to unity. A bird with maturity, sensitivity, intelligence, a keen sense of history, an unassailable moral compass, a vision for the civilized future of his species.............................
Well, it's an obvious next step, isn't it?

Sorry Rival, but the cottage is filled to capacity this weekend! So, there is no room at this inn! I hope that you have upgraded the doghouse!
Although your kind support of RB's homeland is sincere, it is likely not going to 'fly' well with the other member of the household.

How did I even miss this post? Yes indeed, Happy Belated 4th, to Yankee Doodle Roosters (and Hens, and Parronts) everywhere.

Please allow me to make up for my oversight.

Don't remind me. I still have nightmares about that "rendition" or should I say abomination.

Kevin bows the red tail to those vocals...no matter they are bowed in seeking earmuffs but bowed nevertheless.

You almost got this one by me!
The Rickeybird is an All-American Rooster, as all the lovely, wholesome 4th-of-July posts clearly showed. He has many ongoing and important civic duties to discharge right here in the USA.
The only obvious next step is for you to get comfy on the couch. Ha!
