The Intersection


i-47c97411175544f793ab88fedbe4b91d-Sparks.JPGYou may have noticed Science Blogs runs a regular Ask A Science Blogger question referenced on Frontpage where different Sciblings provide interesting perspectives.

Well twice now, Sparticus Maximus the Great has taken over The Intersection with his own expert bird brain opinion. He weighed in on the passing of his hero Alex the Grey and hijacked the blog another morning to express concern over Socks and India – the notorious felines of the White House.

Readers have reacted by requesting regular commentary and lately he’s even getting email – As if the little parrot didn’t already have an enormous ego, now he’s simply unbearable… squawking to be bathed and demanding only the best seeds and pellets for his delicate palate.

It’s enough that we’re finally giving in. We invite everyone to submit questions to our own ‘Ask A Sun Conure.’ Email the impish bird about science, politics, or anything that puzzles you at and every now and then we’ll let him crash The Intersection and teach us all a little something new.

Just please don’t inflate his sense of self importance any more, because he’s becoming terribly difficult to live with ever since becoming a famous guest science blogger.

    A new picture of Sparticus… he looks adorable wet or dry. I think that it is a great idea to invite him to blog every now and then, and impart his interesting wisdom and delicious sense of humor. Looking forward to it.

    One idea of something for Sparticus to blog about:

    Global warming: Pro or con? 😉

    I think this conure is one of the most beautiful birds in the world except all cockatoos and especialy the palm_cockatoo and the umbrella cockatoo are more beatiful 😉
