A love story of me and my Tinkerbell, a free flying
Congo African Grey parrot CAG , as we first roamed about the
mountains and forests and cities of Taiwan from 2002 to 2004. She loved to go riding with me on the motorbike as she sat on a
perch on the handle bar.

Full details of that first period in Taiwan and more are in
here

http://www.geocities.com/shanlung9/indexbegin.html

together with URLs to the relevant Webshots folders
of hundreds of photos. Without those photos, what I
wrote will never be believed. Details of her training,
the design and construction of her harness and her diet
are in this part.


PART 2 - Tinkerbell Legacy


I could not take Tinkerbell with me when I had to leave Taiwan at the end of my contract and my work here. My heart broke and I then wrote Tinkerbell Legacy.

That is the legacy that Tinkerbell will like you to
have. That you can also keep a flying parrot.

The legacy is on-going, and that can be followed from
the blog

PART 3 - Tinkerbell Revisited

In June 2005, I decided I had to see my TInkerbell again and I made a special trip to Taiwan to be with her again for a month..

My account of that visit can be read in my blog starting with

Yingshiong, a white rumped shama was then given to me in Oct 2005
You read and judge for yourself how sentient and intelligent a song bird can be.
