Katrina Remembered

It's been about a year since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the surrounding area. At Bird Talk, we heard many heart-wrenching tales of lost pets, homes and aviaries, but we were also told of a number of heroic actions by people in the bird community. It was a time to either be pulled apart or pulled together. In the next issue of Bird Talk, December 2006, we'll remember some of those tales with stories from readers who lived through Katrina.

Being alone during a tragedy can make it feel 100x worse. Many people turned to their friends, family and coworkers for help in the aftermath of the hurricane. One New Orleans woman, since relocated to Texas, found that support in a new pet, her cockatiel Bonnie. The story was reported by CBS 11TV in Dallas-Fort Worth. You can read about her experience here.
