Here's something new... a survey. Just a millisecond of your time is all we need.
Flock Talk has been in existence since September 2007, a little over 4 months. It's time to find out how our fledgling is progressing. We hope to find out from you how we're doing with our little newsletter, and either jump for joy at our success or slink off into some corner somewhere in shame. Hopefully the former.
Survey will be open until February 28.

The acclaimed and long-running PBS series "Nature" has produced a beauty, for parrot and scenery lovers alike. Parrots in the Land of Oz takes the viewer on a journey through the drier parts of Australia, where life should seemingly not thrive. But there they are, in all their glory; cockatoos, fig parrots and parakeets living and congregating at waterholes sprinkled throughout Australia.
The cinematography is stunning and personal; delving deeply into the lives of pair-bonded birds and capturing great flocks soaring in waves through the sky. A wonderful hour to spend with the entire family. (Broadcast in North America only.)
