Boulder Bird Whisperer Rescues Exotic Parrot: A Tale of Transformation

August 2nd, 2023
conure parrot on my shoulder, next to my beard

Our rescued & adopted green cheeked conure (parrot) came with no history. We don’t know if she was ever out of the cage, or if she even was able to fly. Some have had their “primaries” main flight feathers clipped so they cannot fly. We took a chance after a month or more of letting her adjust to us and to the house and then left the cage door open. She CAN fly, and (per the references) loves being out of her cage. Handling care and SLOW movement is essential, as is a certain tolerance to being bitten. She has such amazing control over her beak that it is like having a third hand. Out... Read More

Ghosts, Galas, and Gatsby? The Hotel Boulderado is the one-stop-shop for all three

June 6th, 2023

I love this place. Not only for its colorful amalgamation of Colorado and Boulder (I see what you did there), nor for it’s weird synesthesia-effect of bringing to mind old  Eagles hits, but because it’s been around for over one hundred years, and that’s pretty frickin’ cool. I’ve bypassed the Hotel on my way to Ozo Coffee or after window-shopping and drooling over at the fjallraven store (*envious sigh*), but it wasn’t until recently that I realized this hotel had some pretty hefty history behind it. A plaque on the outside of the hotel reads: “Hotel Boulderado opened January 1st,... Read More

Calling all bookworms, book hoarders, and bibliophiles!

June 15th, 2017

I admit: I am an avid bookworm, book hoarder, and bibliophile. I never go anywhere without a book and I must read at least an hour each day to feel slightly normal. I frequently visit Trident Booksellers, a three-story bookstore located in the heart of Pearl Street, and romp through their aisles, enjoying being around people who (hopefully) share my mindset, my heart warm and fuzzy being surrounded by thousands of books just waiting to be read. Trident Booksellers was established in 1979, a place for friends and students to gather together to talk, study, read, and imbibe the myriad of classical... Read More
