Meet Our Team

The team here at consists of several staff writers that are experts in the subject matter that they are covering. It wouldn’t make sense to have someone review a cage for a Macaw when they’ve only ever owner parakeets, would it? Often articles are written by one person and edited by another. Because of this, we don’t include a specific author name on each article published.

We’d like to introduce you to a few key players on the team. These are our primary writers, and they are responsible for the creative direction of this website. Thank you to all that have contributed and helped us along the way. Without your guidance, this website wouldn’t be such a great resource for bird owners!

When he’s not raising birds, Ryan enjoys outdoor hiking. He owns several other pets such as cats and dogs; but birds are his passion and he loves writing about them and sharing his experiences with the audience of
