Introducing Boomer, the 2nd Feathered Friend to be featured in our Furry Friends. Boomer is a 2-year-old Cockatiel that works with Kathy Kinev at Jewel Creations, Inc in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to being an award winning jeweler, Kathy raises birds as a hobby. Here Boomer is observing Kathy’s technique on the laser welder. Kathy says he likes to watch her work. Cockatiels sometimes live upward of 25 years, so Kathy’s QC department should be in good hands for quite some time.
