I am finially getting around to working on a Mousebird website: Welcome to the wonderfulworld of Mousebirds - HOME

I'm still laying it out, and have alot of work to do to get it ready. I used my signature pix with it, but I am working on a new pix for the website and signature. Here it is, but I still have to add info to it. I added a Speckled mousebird to the illustration because I am hoping to have some soon...

Congrats! and Good Start!

Have you thought about putting a "Under Construction" message on all the unfinished pages? It would help some of the people who have wounder into your site and know to come back to see more. Otherwise they might think that's all it is.

Thanks :) I'm still typing away on the computer and working on graphics and illustrations for the website. Once I get a little more done I will upload it. Here are some samples...

Your graphics are great. I really have enjoyed reading of mouse birds, growth, habits etc. What a wonderful insight to knowing them. Just keep on telling stories as they are wonderful reading.

Nice going, Susanne!! It is looking great and it will be a hit! I see some HTML coding at some of the pages on the bottom, wondered what is up with that?!

Websites are a time consuming effort and on going to say the least. Mine has been on the web since 2002 but much of it took a long time to do and I still have many things I want to write on.

I've read on how you had to get out of Tiels due to your breathing... ahem... me too... I am in the same boat so I am selling off my breeder birds slowly but surely!

Jan...the coding in the bottom was supposed to be for the Google tracker, so that I can see which areas of interest are coming up in search engines and where from, etc. I think I screwed up in putting it in.

I'm finding the site must be coming up in search engines, and a couple of people have used the contact form. A lady in South Africa emailed me yesterday about a little orphan mousebird that crawled into her house and what to do. Luckily there is an experienced mousebird rehabber in her area that I could refer her to. I got his permision to add his contact info to the links page.

I still got alot of work to do on the site.

Jan, it is tough letting the cockatiels go. I just can't entirely cut the apron strings on all of them though...

Susanne it's really looking fantastic! I really like the way you're putting it together. :)

My website has been a work in progress for such a long time now because I keep changing it and adding to it. I have been meaning to make headers similar to the ones you have made. They look great. I'll have to get on to doing all of that soon. :lol: I will add a link to yours on my links page when I update it today or tomorrow if you like!

I know it's still under construction, but I just wanted to point out a typo on the home page. "March 2005 I wound up in the hospital with a collapsed lung due to breeding in birds dander from my cockatiels." Is that supposed to be breathing? By the way I'm sorry to hear that. :(

Anyhow, it's looking really great. I can't wait to learn more about Mousebirds from reading it when it's done! :D

Thanks Cory :) I was working on the page and just edited it to breathing.

The headers were fun to do. That is what is taking so long to get info up...I am working on alot of photo's and illustrations. I'd like it to be very 'visual' in the info contained. Pix's save alot of reading time.
