Follow me on:

Alyson Kalhagen acquired her first bird, a Budgie named Rambo, when she was 7 and has been infatuated with all things avian ever since. She has worked with birds professionally for nearly 10 years.

Experience:

No stranger to the animal business, Alyson spent three years working as a veterinary technician. She also managed a chain of successful pet stores and served as a pet counselor, focusing on avian behavior and socialization. She has been featured in Bird Talk magazine and is currently owned by Loco, an 8-year-old Sun Conure; Oliver, a 4-year-old Indian Ringneck Parakeet; and Skipper, a 4-year-old Yellow Collared Macaw.

By Alyson Kalhagen:

Birds represent many things to us: peace, wisdom, freedom. In fact, I think it's a bird's freedom and independence that intrigues us as humans. That something powerful enough to fly above the highest mountaintops accepts us people as family members is exciting indeed. I look forward to offering information, tips, and ideas to help people make the most out of the relationship they have with their feathered friends.
