Best-selling author, Camille Licate, who recently penned the self-awareness and help novel Small Shoes, is also a big bird lady!
Licate, who is an advocate for various animal charities in North America, has rescued currently eight birds that live with her in her Los Angeles home.
The birds range from White Cap Pionus to smaller Pacific Parrotletts. And being the bird lady Licate is, each has a unique and humorous name to accompany. Michaela is the biggest bird she owns, named after the character from the old hit television series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and her others are named Maryann & Ginger (after characters from Gilligan’s Island), Kate (after Duchess Kate Middleton) and Lucy & Grace.
