I have a soft spot for birds, African Greys especially.
I've never owned one, but I read quite a few bird books when I was working at Petco and wanted to know as much as I could. I never got to use most of what I learned, since no one that shopped at our Petco actually cared much about birds.... haha, but I became fascinated by them. My mom has had cockatiels, doves, parakeets, lovebirds, etc, and we once bird sat an amazon parrot for a summer for my aunt.
I would LOVE to have one someday, but I think I'll wait until I am older and settled into my life a little bit more and have a more permanent residence. I've moved houses at least every year for the past five years. It's hard enough to convince landlords to let me have my dog and a 75 gallon fish tank. I couldn't imagine adding a bird on to the end of that list.
I am always game for reading Twitch stories though! They're such amazing birds.
