Birdmom is an alias for 500CBFan, which is the same as WuBaiCBFan. This is where I'll post the homework essays I do for my Chinese class, and maybe just write a bit about daily life in Chinese. Why Birdmom? Because back in the US I had three beautiful African Grey Parrots, and they were my kids. They called me "Mom," and I sure do miss them. In my heart, I'm still their mom, even though someone else has taken over that job in real life.
