Jeannine – The Avian Researcher

Jeannine and her husband Terry have been involved with birds for many years. Her flock now consists of nine cockatiels, all rescued.

Her experience with Avian Bornaviral Ganglioneuritis (PDD) stems from the five years she cared for their Triton cockatoo, Krissy, who passed away in 2013.

Their cockatiels range from around seven to 22  years of age. They take in birds that are neglected and often abused.

They have been involved in avian rescue for the past 15 years. Some of the birds came from rescue organizations and some through friends.

In addition to writing for Beauty of Birds, Jeannine has a Facebook group named, “The Science of Avian Health.”

This page is strictly an educational site and contains veterinarian-approved research papers and other articles about avian health and illness in the “Files.”
