There's a club in Davenport that is definitely for the birds.  It's a place where parrots rule the roost.

The Quad Cities Parrot Society has been in existence for about fifteen years. There are about 25 members. The parrots have names like Skippy, Sweet Pea, Tiki, and Milo.

Some of the owners have taught the parrots to talk. Other birds laugh.

Often at these meetings the members discuss proper grooming and nutrition for the birds. A veterinarian will occasionally attend a meeting to offer advice.

The society will do parrot rescues. They rescue birds from places where the owner has passed away. In some instances, a family had to move and cannot take the parrot with them. The society finds homes for those parrots Places where they will be loved.

Members says parrots need to socialize with people. That keeps the birds happy.

The  Quad Cities Parrot Society meets once a month, usually at Petco on Elmore Avenue in Davenport.
