  PART 1 - The Early Period of Tinkerbell in Taiwan

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
together with URLs to the relevant 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.

She flew freely in apartment and near the apartment.  When taken out to further  places and restaurants  and on the motorbike, she wore a harness.

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 June to July 2005
