Our "Mayor of the Avenue" award is presented to a member who exhibits the qualities that distinguish them to be an upstanding credit to the Avenue, a loving, informed, conscientious and caring bird parront and an all around good neighbor.

I am happy to announce that calibird is October's Mayor of the Month.
I enjoyed reading your interview, and am sure that everyone else will as well!

1. What kind of birds do you have (age, species and names)?

I currently do not own any birds. I have owned Zebra Finches when I was growing up. As an adult I have owned 2 Cockatiels and 1 Green Cheek Conure.

2. What got you interested in birds?

When I was little I had hamsters and finally convinced my mom to let me get a bird.

3. What have your birds brought to your life?


My birds brought me quite a bit of joy to my life. About a year before I took over California Bird Nerds, from my sister, my Green Cheek Conure died at the age of 18. At the time I took over the business I was thinking of getting another bird. Between raising two kids, three dogs and the business I decided to hold off. After having the business for a while and concerns of bird disease I decided to keep the business a bird free environment. I occasionally think about getting another bird. However, after losing 3 dogs in a 15 month time period between March of 2020 and July of 2021, from old age, I am just not ready to open my heart to any pets.


4. What have you learned from sharing your life with your birds?

They do bring me a huge amount of joy and can be very rewarding.

5. What's one birdie memory that will stay with you forever?

The first time my Green Cheek Conure, Google, said Hello.

6. Where is your birds main living area?

My birds always had their cages in the family room to be close to us.

7. Did you change things in your home to accommodate your birds and if so what kinds of things did you change?

I put tile in the family room instead of carpet for easier cleaning.

8. Are you involved in any kind of bird related group or activities?


Avian Avenue and a few Facebook Groups.


9. What is the one luxury item you would love to have for your bird(s)?


Stainless Steel Cages. Would love for someone to invent a self cleaning cage. LOL


14. What other hobbies do you have?


My kids, which are now adults, my aging parents and the business are my life. It doesnt leave much room for Hobbies. However, I do love to travel.
