Lovebirds " data-medium-file="" data-large-file=""/>


For Blazing Caribou’s tribute to romance for Valentines Day, in this week’s Varmints podcast we’ll talk about lovebirds! Lovebirds were suggested by BCS co-manager Kari Simms, so Happy Valentines Day, boss! We hope you enjoy the episode! Lovebirds are little parrots who truly mate for life. They feed each other, they cuddle, and generally go along in life being super adorable tiny dinosaurs. So, come on in and celebrate love with us and the itty bitty colorful squawkers!

Here’s some stuff we referenced on the show:
