So in Witless Bay, Canada, is one of the largest puffin colonies in the world. When fledgling puffins learn to fly, they are supposed to follow the moon out to sea. But the town has an issue with baby puffins getting confused by the lights of the town and flying into town instead! So, in addition to figuring out how to make changes to the lights, groups of volunteers go out at night to rescue puffins! This is Roland. I spotted him and my sister caught him (according to the directions of the organization) and we brought him back to the rescue! We were so excited and love him! Tomorrow he will be banded and released back into the wild!

(Note – we wore gloves. The person in the video is the organization person)

What’s it like to take care of a bird? I’ve always wanted one 😊

The first thing I want to make clear about birds is that they are LOUD. Conures and other parrots in particular are very social and like to talk. Even if they can’t use words, they scream.
The day to day isn’t too high maintenance. You make sure they have food and water and toys and a clean cage and they mostly just bird. But most birds will also need some social time hanging it with you. Gabe likes to sit on my head or shoulder while I play games. Their little beaks are also surprisingly sharp and can hurt. When Gabe is grumpy, he’s been known to break skin.
Besides all that, they can be great companions. I love Gabe to death and can’t believe we have a bird who likes to snuggle!
