I love birds very much. I especially love to watch them in natural surroundings. But it is also great when living in a city you can listen to birds singing every morning. You can do it if you keep birds at home. But before taking a bird home you should consider many things. First of all you must understand that it takes much effort even to look after a small bird. You can encounter problems with feeding. Now we have possibilities to buy any kind of feeding stuff for the majority of birds. But in small towns there may not be such pet food. Birds often fall ill because for various reasons. And one must be prepared to regularly take them to the vet. So if you are not ready to look after your pet properly, do not buy even a parrot.
