Do any of you keep journals about your birds? If so, what do you write down in there? Do you put pictures in there? Feathers? Feel free to share!
Same here! I actually just started a Tumblr bird journal of sorts recently, after realizing I had so many random photos and little videos I kept taking and then posting on random social media, that it just felt like it made more sense to put them all together in one placeI do the virtual equivalent! I blog about my birds on tumblr, hahaha! So many...photos and videos...
Livejournal is a great place to go I love the fact that I get 15 choices of profile pictures to use. It's not as busy as it used to be, but the bird community, parrot_lovers, seems to be going strong.I also save feathers for crafts and cards. @vampiric_conure thanks for the live journal info I'm getting back into journalling and it looks like a great resource. On the subject of social media, I notice that a lot of people have Twitter accounts for their birds - maybe it's because of the name
Like Sunnie, I also have a scrapbook I created with photos of Sunny so it is not a journal. It's just a small one but it is very cute and I like it a lot. I haven't been working on it for a long time now because I have too many projects that have taken priority but maybe by next summer I will be able to get back to doing it. I also plan to create a big scrapbook called "Sunny's Rules in Life" where each page talks about one of Sunny's rules. I even have all the rules written already but so far I have only created the first page. Sunny's first rule is "Always eat breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day." Again, that will have to wait until next summer!What a great topic. I have a scrapbook that I'm going to make up about my lovebird who died two years ago. When he first died I used to write little memories of him in a book. On the cover of the journal there was a poem and one line said "may God give you for every storm a rainbow". It was significant for me because on the day he died there was huge perfectly formed rainbow in the sky and then I learned about the Rainbow Bridge poem.
I think it would be nice to capture the funny little things Sunny does just to remind myself of the simple pleasures and to maybe turn them into a book maybe something similar to the "Divatiel" memoir.
