Even "Over There" Robert Ekstroem has parrots on the brain! Look at the great banner he made!


Casper, in harness, outside with Mom.


Pete and Elliot playing (Do not attempt this at home; these are highly trained stunt birds!)


Stanley Quaker, three months old, snuggling. Note the new feathers on Stanley's head.


Stanley Quaker, standing tall at the ripe old age of ten months.


Reka, airborne! Yay Reka!


Hello, tower? This is Reka. I want to land...NOW!


Freeman, airborne, heading for the kitchen.


Freeman, putting on the brakes as he comes in for a landing. Great...now no doughnut is safe.


Leanna, Karen and Lin out for a walk with the birds. All birds are harnessed.


March 25th 1st ever Chili Contest. This fundraiser was held on behalf of the Adopt-A-Bird Committee and helped raise funds for the necessary vet funds when rescuing parrots. The Alaska Bird Club is the only parrot rescue group on file with the Anchorage Municipality Animal Care and Control Center.


The Alaska Bird Club's booth at the Friends of Pets Event at the Alaska Pacific University campus. This event is put on by Friends of Pets to raise awareness of the different kinds of pets people have and how to take care of them, and the different groups out there to help support them. The cage on the table has a sign on it that says "This cage is an exhibition cage only and is not suitable to hold a bird this size in it. This type of bird lives in a cage ten times this size."


Yes that's a tree in Leanna's house, made from various neighbors' birch trees (but don't thell them!). She starts with a birch branch as the trunk of her "tree" and then attaches perches. The base is a christmas tree holder or a bucket filled with cement. If you build one, make sure your base is heavy enough to support your birds!.


What happens when harnessing a bird goes terribly, terribly wrong.
