Squawk & Play 

The Bird World provides an endless opportunity to become informed and educated. As hosts for so many varieties of parrots, we constantly work to broaden our knowledge, and in turn, want to share that information with our patrons. Since 2015 the San Francisco Bird Hotel hosted a number of successful events. We meet for our Squawk & Play™ events every last  Saturday of the month  from March to September.  We offer a blend of activities for the afternoon. We have toy building materials, we paint, we draw, we just socialize , we forge friendships  and we just have fun!  We try to schedule educational talks whenever possible. For 2019 we have a number of new events in our Squawk & Play event series and invite everyone interested to socialize creatively.

"Parrot Poetry Party"

Eddie, our Amazon parrot, serving as Director of Recreation and Entertainment at the Hotel, invites you to,

“Squawk & Play: Parrot Poetry Party” on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 1:00p.m. - 4:00p.m.

Held in a cozy living room format, this literary event will encourage you to soar into the classics.

As we all know, some parrots are excellent at reciting but sometimes it’s just not poetry.

In our effort to promote avian literacy, we encourage both parrots and people to write and

recite a short (at least 3 lines) poem about birds.



Due to his extraordinary talents, Eddie, bonis avibus, became a scholar of the Latin language. He also devotes his time to classical music and poetry readings. He has integrated meditative activities for mind, body and feathers to the hotel’s entertainment schedule.

At “Squawk & Play: Parrot Poetry Party,” you’ll:


  • Get to show off your own writing skills in an ode to your bird/s and recite among fellow parrots and bird owners (3 lines minimum)

  • Compete for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place prizes, e.g., wind spinners, select spa treatments, and one day/night stay for 1 bird

  • Savor sweets, nuts, fruits, salads, snacks, and wine

  • Squawk, screech and talk in the company of fine feathered friends and fellow bird owners

  • Get your poem signed by Eddie
